The iPhone 7 is still a pretty big mystery, but a fresh batch of leaked images may reveal a bit more about the device. Two new pictures and a leaked schematic claim to show the rumored smartphone from several new angles.
The leaked pictures emerged from Chinese social network Weibo, showing a gold version of the iPhone 7 that looks stunning. The images line up pretty closely to earlier leaks, with repositioned antenna bands and a larger rear camera. There’s no Smart Connector, which is also supported by recent reports. Apple’s also apparently added a second rear microphone, which could add stereo recording in the new phone.
A separate post from Twitter tipster OnLeaks shows one corner of what looks like an iPhone 7 schematic. You can clearly see the three circles that signify Apple’s Smart Connector, which may be limited to the higher-end iPhone 7 Plus. It’s also possible this schematic could be based on an earlier design before Apple allegedly “shelved” the rumored feature.
There’s been a lot of false iPhone 7 information floating around, with plenty of rumors being shot down on a regular basis. So we’d treat these new leaks with a heavy dose of salt. Still, with the device expected to launch in September Apple’s likely closing in on a final design and it’s possible that could be what we’re looking at here.
