Three days ago, I have submitted a post showing a much clearer leaked photo of the iPhone 7 which is considered to be the first ever outdoor shot of the handset’s physical design. Today, another batch of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus leaked photos had surfaced on the internet. The photos were once again obtained by a French blog site NowhereElse.fr from the same Chinese supply chain source.
The first batch of pictures shows the gold version of the iPhone 7 with the presence of the power button, the volume up and down buttons as well as the mute switch. Unfortunately, the bottom part of the phone is still not visible enough for us to confirm the removal of the 3.5 mm audio port.
The second batch of pictures below shows off the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus with the noticeable three dots near the bottom edge of the device. These dots seem to resemble the rumors that the larger handset will support a Smart Connector that can be used to magnetically attached peripherals for added feature and functionally like the notion about the wireless charging.
Intriguingly, the photos of the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus doesn’t seem to have a mute switch anywhere near the volume controls. This could suggest that Apple might have planned to give the larger handset the ability to mute the volume of the device by holding the volume down button for a few seconds like the iPad Air 2. Still, the photo depicts the clickable home button rather than the rumored pressure sensitive touch surface extended to the front face display.
Another picture shows the possible color variations of the iPhone 7. The image shows only four color variations namely silver, gold, space gray and rose gold. The rumored new space gray dubbed as space black is not shown on this picture.
The models in these pictures are claimed to be dummies or molds that are normally used by the third-party manufacturers to take precise measurements of the hard covers, cases and other accessories in conjunction to the launch of the phone. Although dummies, these still adds up to support what we have been confirming as to the aesthetic design of the future iPhone.
