The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will both feature better cameras, it appears, after a new set of images surfaced showing off the rear shell of the handsets.
Pictures snapped by sources close to Apple’s Chinese supply chain back up a string of rumours that suggested the California company will focus on improving camera capabilities for 2016's iPhones.
The 4.7–inch iPhone 7 appears to have a single lens. A much larger opening on the rear casing points towards a protruding camera, with a much larger sensor compared to 2015’s iPhone 6s.
Some insiders have suggested it could be as high as 21 megapixels.
The iPhone 7 Plus’s rear shell, conversely, clearly has space for a dual lens set-up.
This has long been pegged as that device’s key feature, even though recent chatter suggested Apple is ditching its dual lens approach because it cannot secure enough working components in time for launch.
Either way, it seems that the design of the iPhone 7 will be virtually identical to the iPhone 6s, with Apple instead looking to 2017 and the iPhone’s tenth anniversary for a complete reboot of smartphone range.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are set to launch in September.
