Apple could launch three iPhones this year, after a dummy model of a so–called iPhone 7 Pro was pictured alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The images, sourced from China, appear to show a large, 5.5–inch screen iPhone with a dual lens camera and Smart Connector tech, next to a 5.5–inch iPhone and 4.7–inch iPhone. These both have single lens cameras and little else in the way of distinctive features.
The model with the dual lens shooter is said to be the iPhone 7 Pro.
This fits with a number of rumours which appeared earlier this year, claiming that Apple was looking to offer a ‘Pro’ edition of the iPhone to match its iPad and MacBook range.
Recent supply-chain chatter cast doubt on those reports. But with weeks to go until the official launch, it seems a Pro-branded iPhone is back on the agenda.
Such a move would give Apple an edge in the smartphone market at a time when it is facing increased competition and could help to offset criticism that this year's iPhone roster is lacking in standout features.
The iPhone 7, which appeared in a leaked video last week, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro could all make an appearance at a special launch event pegged for September.
