New iPhone 7 Chassis With Redesigned Antenna Lines, Bigger Camera Shown In Purported Images

Apple’s official media event will take place on the confirmed March 21st date now, as is usually the case at this time of year, which although focuses on the next-generation iPhone release this fall. Following on from a preview of what was believed to be the first third-party case manufactured for the iPhone 7, we’re again seeing a number of additional leaks, one of such purports to showcase a technical drawing of the chassis that gives additional insight into the architecture of the original iPhone 7.

Newly leaked images claims to show off what is allegedly the rear panel of Apple’s next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 7. In fact it was said that Apple inventing a newer type of metal alloy that would essentially allow the company to completely remove the existing antenna lines on the device. To keep it in a safe poisition, this particualr image today, which has made its way into the public domain, almost echos that design direction.


The antenna lines were never really expected to go way completely and as seen in the leaked images, the horizontal lines that run across the width of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have been removed, while the aesthetics of the device show the lines wrapping the curve of the phone at the bottom and top remain in place.

Next to speak about the source that responsible for this leak has also emphesized that the leaked outer shell of iPhone 7 is much thinner than its predecessor, which obviously means Apple has decided to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from its smartphone going forward.

Slightly uncovered in this new leak is that, it was only invetible that we come across a mockup of what the iPhone 7 could look end up looking like in all its glory, that too if the new antenna design does make it to the mass production line. If that imagined, then it does give the device a more premium and cleaner look to its kind.

When comparing the leaked image against the current iPhone design, it also spotlights the camera module that looks noticeably bigger than that of the now selling iPhone 6s model. Providing us with an indication that the bigger iPhone 7 could indeed ship with an improved type of photography sensor setup. However, as per this leak though, it doesn’t show up the actual change that will include the highly rumored dual-camera system that could be exclusive to the iPhone Pro. Discussed in the past and could see a major kind of change which is still coming from a camera perspective.

Undeniably the iPhone 7 release will be one of the hottest dates on this year’s consumer tech calendar. Currently, what to expect from and about Apple’s next major revamp of the iPhone is merely speculation, with only a marginal amount of evidence to back it up now. Once we come closer and closer to the official announcement, it’s likely to significantly change as we see additional leaks from supply chain partners and directly from the assembly line.
