According to a new report coming from China, Apple’s anticipated iPhone 7 Plus smartphone will sport a new, larger inbuilt storage version and house a bigger battery.
As per a report by Chinese site MyDrivers, the unannounced iPhone 7 Plus model will come a 256GB inbuilt storage variant this year. Introduced with the iPhone 6, the largest storage variant till date was the 128GB model. The report also claims the smartphone to feature a larger 3100mAh battery, which is 350mAh more than the 2750mAh battery in iPhone 6s Plus. If true, the upcoming iPhone models would come at exorbitant prices. However, all this should be taken with a pinch of salt, as Apple has not confirmed any of the aforementioned claims.
Introducing a 256GB inbuilt storage variant might make sense for Apple as the iPhone models can now click images in higher-resolution than before and can record 4K videos as well. There is no word if the Cupertino-based tech firm will ditch the 16GB variant or not.
Last month a leaked video, claimed to be from a manufacturing plant of Foxconn, claimed to show the purported prototype of the iPhone 7. However, while the video definitely shows an Apple logo at the rear of the handset, several other things point that it may be a cheap iPhone knock-off from a local Chinese company.
Based on preliminary leaks, Apple is said to consider ditching the Lightning connector and replace it with a USB Type-C port. Some other features that Apple is rumoured to be working on include multi-touch 3D Touch, dual camera sensors, and an in-display fingerprint recognition technology. An earlier report also claimed that Apple may ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone in favour of Lightning connector-enabled earphones and adapters.
