Though the next iPhone isn’t set to be released until September which is about five months away, there are speculations as to how the phone will look and what will differentiate it from the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus.
Based on speculations, it seems the most distinguishing feature the iPhone 7 will have won’t be the appearance but the camera feature.
According to Ming Chi-Kuo of KGI Securities, the next iPhone may be so significantly different from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that it wont be named the iPhone 6s as many expect but iPhone 7. He also believes that the next iPhone will come in two sizes and the sizes won’t be any different from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as Apple are likely to stick with 4.7 and 5.5 inch screens.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple are currently experimenting with a new pink colour but there is no evidence as to whether or not this colour will ever come out but that it could come out in the next iPhone. WSJ also suggests that apple had recently purchased renowned Israel-based camera company LinX for $20 million.
LinX is believed to be working on a technology that could help reduce noise and also help the iPhone take clearer photos in low-light conditions, among other improvements. They could go as far as adding 3D camera effects to the photos and it might have a duo camera which essentially means the phone would come with more than one camera sensor so it could capture depth-of-field images not unlike the camera on the HTC One M8.
The new iPhone 7 will come fitted with the iOS 9 pre-installed. The iOS 9 is the latest of Apple software. We expect to learn more about iOS 9 in June at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference.
