Apple is going to treat its fans in the coming year with the arrival of its much anticipated iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
There is no denying these upcoming smartphones from the Cupertino-based tech titan have already made a buzz over the Web, via a slew of rumors emerged, even before the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were rolled out to the public this year.
Well, it should be expected as iPhone is deemed as among (if not the most) popular smartphones in the overcrowded market for handsets.
At any rate, it is highly anticipated that Apple is going to bring its game up a notch as its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are expected to pack in a handful of handy features and specs under the hood.
Without further ado, here is everything we know so far about the bigger sibling, the iPhone 7 Plus, based on leaks and hearsay which emerged online in the past months.
Fans might be delighted to know that they could have a new iPhone next year which rocks a new nifty design.
This smartphone is rumored to boast an aluminum alloy or liquidmetal body.
What makes this handset interesting as well is it is going to feature a Touch ID placed on the display and a 3.5 millimeters audio jack. This is furthermore said to be waterproof.
It is purported that the new iPhone device will ditch the home button and that the new 3D Touch functionality of the device will function analogous to a home button.
The most sound rumor about the display of this new iPhone device is that its 3D Touch feature is going to sport multi-touch support.
In the meantime, the display size and resolution are possibly akin to that of the iPhone 6s Plus.
In addition, fans will be given four color options to select from, including Space Black, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold.
What is purported about this device is that it will house a 12-megapixel iSight shooter at the back and a 5-megapixel FaceTime camera at the front for selfie.
It is expected that the iPhone 7 Plus is going to come equipped with 3 GB of RAM.
Moreover, it is believed to arrive with a 16nm Apple A10 chipset which is built by TSMC.
In terms of its processor, this could be powered by 1.5 GHz dual core cyclone (ARM v8 based) CPU.
With regard to its battery capacity, the iPhone 7 Plus could sport 2,100 mAh.
Storage-wise, the handset could come in an assortment of choices to pick from: 256 GB, 128 GB, 64 GB and 32 GB.
Rumors point to an early September 2016 for the unwrapping of the iPhone 7 Plus along with the iPhone 7. Meanwhile, it is believed that the actual release of these new iPhone devices will kick off by late September.
The iPhone 7 Plus could arrive featuring a $1,000 to $1,200 price tag. It is a steep price, but given the fact that it might tout notable feature and specs, the price could be well worth the experience this phone is going to offer.
