As more images of the iPhone 7 leak out, one question may now be answered: Why are we seeing conflicting designs for the upcoming smartphone?
According to the latest leak from the oft-reliable Nowhere Else, a third model, the iPhone 7 Pro, might join the standard iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus variants. Of course, as with any leak, we advise taking this news with a grain of salt on the side.
The Pro model stands out from its kin with what appears to be a smart connector port and dual camera, as noted by 9to5Mac. Other rumors speculate that the Pro will boast significantly more storage – 256GB, to be exact – for those who take their smartphone game seriously.
This could possibly explain why some iPhone 7 rumors mentioned a two-camera setup while others showed of a single-lens build, as seen on the normal and Plus models in these photos.
Also interesting is that the backs of all three cases show off an “S” marking, indicating that Apple may be considering adding to its S series. This would be an odd choice, considering how recently both the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE came out.
One take is that the S is just a placeholder mark for what are proof-of-concept “dummies” sent to manufacturers to develop accessories for. Another: the phones are fake (see our earlier grain-of-salt warning).
With fall fast approaching, we expect to learn more about the handset’s future straight from the source, including confirmation of a third Pro model along with whatever price Apple could possibly cook up for an even more expensive iPhone.
