iPhone 7 Release Date, Specs & Update: Apple Likely To Dump The 16 GB iPhone?


We are just days away from the much talked-about iPhone 7's launch, but rumor mills have not ceased churning speculations around the purported smartphone, hinting that it will carry a different name - the iPhone 6 SE, for instance - citing the fact that the new flagship phone might not boast greater specs far from it precursors.

A recently spotted benchmark by GSM Arena has further cemented that theory, which divulges a handset dubbed as the iPhone 6 SE, acquiring high scores on Geekbench performed by a Chinese tipster.

The purported phone garners a single-core result of 3042 and a multi-core score of 5210, which is on top of the 4417 multi-core score the iPhone 6S managed to amass in the GSMArena tests, suggesting to be a new phone which boasts a newer chipset like A10.

Furthermore, the result indicate that the device will be running on iOS 10, which the aforesaid handset (iPhone 7, iPhone 6 SE or whatever it ends up being dubbed as), is likely to launch with, TechRadar reported.

If recently-surfaced rumors are anything to go by, the highly-anticipated capacitive Home button won't happen this year, as the prototype still sports a physical button. Nonetheless, the True Tone display tech originally from the iPad Pro 9.7, which enables the screen to fine-tune its white balance to match your surroundings, is likely to make it to the new iPhone.

Moreover, the iPhone 6 SE Plus is rumored to sport a dual rear camera arrangement, which is going to have a solution in keeping with what LG's chosen for the G5, with two cameras featuring different focal lengths.

Purported pricing specs on the Apple devices have surfaced online as well, and it suggests an absence of a 16 GB variant. Rumors doing rounds indicate that Apple is likely to move to 32 GB, 64 GB, and 256 GB storage options for the impending iPhone 7, and 32 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB for iPhone 7 Plus.

16 GB iPhone Likely To Be Ditched?

Just days ahead of iPhone 7's actual launch, several reports have been offering evidence that hint Apple will ditch the 16 GB iPhone, BGR reported.

The rest of information is expected to be divulged with Apple's announcement on its annual September 7 gala event where the Cupertino based tech firm will take the wraps off the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
