A newly leaked part from Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 7 appears to confirm a series of rumours regarding the company’s plans for its latest smartphone.
Pictures of the shell of a new rose gold iPhone 7, seen on Chinese social media, clearly show the new device is missing the somewhat unsightly antenna bands of the current iPhone 6s.
Reports have consistently pointed towards Apple ditching these plastic bands to make its metal design look more uniform and altogether tidier.
The part also shows Apple is planning a single lens camera for the iPhone 7.
Its larger stablemate, the iPhone 7 Plus, is set to feature a dual lens camera, as Apple looks to diversify its smartphone range.
The design points towards Apple keeping the same look and feel as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.
This fits neatly with stories from Japan which suggest that Apple is looking to move the iPhone to a three year upgrade cycle.
The company is expected to offer a completely overhauled iPhone in 2017, with updated haptic feedback smarts and an OLED display.
The iPhone 7 is expected to be released in September.
