iPhone 7 Expected To Lose Rear Antenna Bands, Protruding Camera


iPhone 7 Expected To Lose Rear Antenna Bands, Protruding Camera

While only small details in the grand scheme of things, Apple’s next iPhone could arrive with a sleeker overall aesthetic than previous available models.

Not expected to make its public introduction until sometime this fall, (and likely to be preceded by the launch of a less powerful iPhone model sometime this March), the iPhone 7 will not arrive with the protruding camera module that both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S feature today.


Concept: iPhone 7 with flush external design and non-protruding camera

Instead, Slivka claims, the camera of the iPhone 7 is “said to sit flush with the rear casing.” This, the report notes, is only possible due to Apple having chosen to use a ”thinner camera module” in the forthcoming device.

The report cites that the company in addition also has plans to remove the antenna bands, that have been present on the smartphone since the introduction of the iPhone 6, in favour for a “cleaner” all-metal look on the back.

These antenna bands will, however, remain on the top, bottom and sides of the device – according to the report.


And finally – we get the claim this week that Apple will not only introduce its recently patented dual-lens camera system into the smartphone’s next-gen iteration, but will also hold back this technology from the smaller screened iPhone 7 – making it exclusive to the phone’s expected ‘Plus’ variant.

Apple is currently pegged to unveil its next major revision to the iPhone, later this fall. You can follow along with all the speculation leading up to the smartphone’s public debut – here.
