iPhone 7 leak reveals the headphone jack isn’t going anywhere, possible dual SIM variant, as well

gearbest.com

A new leak, surfaced from social network Weibo in China, revealed several parts that are allegedly part of the materials list for the upcoming iPhones. There still appear to be two variants, one with a 4.7 inch screen and another with a 5.5 inch screen.

Whats interesting is despite all the buzz and speculation surrounding Apples possible omission of the classic 3.5mm headphone jack, the parts that were leaked clearly show a lightning port assembly which includes the 3.5mm headphone jack after all. Perhaps Apple wasnt trying to make the new iPhone as thin as the recently announced Moto Z which, in fact, has no 3.5mm at all.

The parts leaked include a dual lens camera module which would be used on the alleged iPhones Plus variant, SanDisk memory chips with storage up to 256GB of memory, display panels of both 4.7 and 5.5 inch variants (still not much info about the display itself), the lightning port assembly (which includes the 3.5mm jack), and a dual SIM card tray for a possible dual SIM variant.

Other leaks suggest the iPhone 7 may look similar to the iPhone 6 (Plus) and 6S (Plus) with the exception of a slightly different camera position and perhaps some shuffling of the ports underneath (depending on the headphone jack). Oh, and lets not forget about the repositioned antenna line.

Still, we dont know too much about the iPhone 7s new hardware features like the dual camera setup or the dual SIM support. Apple iPhone users take the longest to upgrade phones among any other manufacturer; this comes with pros and cons for the consumer and company alike. We hope, for Apples sake, that the iPhone 7 doesnt look too similar to the 6 and 6S models.

  1. .DeadPool., 9 hours agohaha Fu*kin ha ….. Dual sim Iphone!!! I bet Tim Cook will call it revolutionary lolapple used 1 sim : “now all phone have dual sim… apple so 2000″
    apple used 2 sim : “we already used since 1956 … apple copy”

    android user logic … they ask something for apple to do , when apple do it , they blame apple for copying

    or maybe android user really uncomfortable what apple do , thats why they spend more time bashing apple to make they feel better …

  2. Apple becoming android .. Android becoming Apple (refined) ..

  3. All my iinnocent friends,one thing wanna tell you that moto omitted the 3.5 jack not to make the device slim,but to flush the module with the rest of the body without increasing the bulk.

    BTW, if Apple wanna do that,they can also. But then they should have something to justify like the moto mods.

  4. cozxta, 5 hours agoDo you really think Apple designs their phones thinking only about USA? USA isn’t the center o… moreUnfortunately, most developed countries do not use dual sim, not just a USA thing.

    Only on developing countries and third world it is popular, for people to escape the cost of telco.
    If people have trouble with their telco bills.. how could they possibility buy iPhones, let alone only complaining everything is expensive?

    If iPhone truly have dual sim, most likely one is lockdown to Apple sim and support worldwide

    Only on … moreLOL. I have ample amount of money to buy an iphone. And I welcome the addition of dual sim. I live in third world country and I don’t use dual sim smartphones to eacape telecom cost. I use two sim, one for personal contacts and other for my office contacts. So stop right there buddy. iphone is not only used in US of A.

  6. crapple, 9 hours agoperhaps the reporter of this post is forgetting that apple is USA company and people don’t kno… moreor perhaps you can’t read at all? the title clearly stated ‘possible dual SIM’ variant, plus the reporter only wrote according to the leaked information

  7. The iPhone 7 will use the body from iPhone 6 and 6s but change a couple things like the antenna lines and camera bump. Nothing much will be different including the size and shape

  8. These days, 99% flagship smartphones are with dual SIM. Most people maintain 2 cell numbers, one official and the other as private/personal. Since, Apple so far did not produce any iPhone with dual SIM, many users opted to buy galaxy s6/s7 or even LG G5 for using 2 SIMs at a a time. Apple must change their business strategy by including dual SIM in iPhone 7 and then onward. It’s the trend now.

  9. hahahaha!! this line really got my attention..
    “Other leaks suggest the iPhone 7 may look similar to the iPhone 6 (Plus) and 6S (Plus)”.

    Of course it will exactly look like 6S & 6S+ you dimwits with antenna bands reshuffled and dual camera setup(bigger variant only) because 6S & 6S+ exactly looks like 6 & 6+ and SE exactly looks like 5S. Every iphone looks exactly like every other iphone. LOL!

  10. Anonymous, 4 hours agoUnfortunately, most developed countries do not use dual sim, not just a USA thing.

    Only on … moreMost developed countries have 15% and Asia itself has more than 60% of the total population of the world. If Apple is concerned about making money through sale of iPhone, then it must keep provision for dual SIM in iPhone 7 and onward.

  11. Showing a dual-sim module cast a shadow of a doubt to the legitimacy of this leak. I don’t think dual sim fits in the company philosophy of “simple is better”, “it just works” and so on. Dual-sim adds a level of complexity, decreases battery life and is more common in lower-end phones, whose users are more price conscious. Adding it in high-end android phones is because android manufacturers are trying to provide everything possible and fill every niche on the market. I have a dual-sim Moto G, but never used it with two sim cards at once. Bought it because it was the only one available in my region and I also thought I might want to use it some day or that it will increase the phone resale value. Two years later I think it is completely useless to me, but bought it and added +1 to the statistics.

  12. dual sim ? nope ! with iphone battery ife this would be a disaster .

  13. anFan, 3 hours agohahahaha!! this line really got my attention..
    “Other leaks suggest the iPhone 7 may look sim… moreLike samsung right? 😀

  14. How about they fix first name those gigantic bezels, subpar battery, extremely high SAR value, mono audio for video recording, subpar resolution display, bloated software despite being only a glorified aoo launcher, paltry 16 GB of memory, Crippled NFC & Bluetooth functionality, mid range camera from 2012, back button STILL on the top left corner. Lol

  15. goooood news dual sim? it’s great news… go with dual sim.

  16. Is it me or does the last image look like it has pins for micro SD instead of second sim as an options. More salt. :)
