Massive iPhone 7 Leak Reveals 15 New Features

The iPhone 7 is almost here and it wouldn’t be an Apple AAPL +0.94% launch without Ming-Chi Kuo spoiling all the surprises. The KGI Securities analyst (widely regarded as “the best Apple analyst on the planet”) has revealed 15 major changes coming to both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus…

Obtained by AppleInsider, the list reads as follows:

  1. New True Tone displays like the iPad Pro range, with laser based proximity sensors for faster response times
  2. 32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage tiers will replace 16GB, 64GB and 128GB
  3. 2x 12MP dual rear camera limited to iPhone 7 Plus, uses 1x wide angle and 1x telephoto lenses
  4. Upgraded ambient light sensors on both new iPhone cameras for better low light shots
  5. Camera flash LEDs doubled from two to four with warm and cool colours
  6. 3.5mm headphone jack removed
  7. Lightning EarPods and a 3.5mm to Lightning headphone adaptor included in the box
  8. Second external speaker and integrated amplifier for louder, richer output
  9. Basic IPX7 water resistance – both phones can withstand splashes and full submersion for up to 30 minutes. Not quite Galaxy S7 level (one hour+), but close.
  10. 2GB RAM for iPhone 7, 3GB RAM for iPhone 7 Plus
  11. Next generation A10 chipset sees CPUs hit 2.45GHz clock speeds and 20-30% performance gains

  13. Home button replaced with non-clicking touch sensor with haptic feedback
  14. Antenna bands removed from the back of both models for cleaner look
