Apple is going to formally launch the iPhone 7 in a few days and it’s quite likely that some of the things we have already heard about this handset will turn out to be true. Infamous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has sent out a new research report to investors outlining his predictions of what’s new in iPhone 7.
Kuo reiterates in the research report that Apple is going to do away with the 16GB and 64GB storage options for the iPhone. This year the company is expected to offer the new iPhone in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage options.
Kuo also predicts that the iPhone 7 camera flash is going to be improved with increased number of LEDs from two to four. Two LEDs are said to be in cool and two in warm colors. The company might add an ambient light sensor to further improve image quality in low-light conditions.
iPhone 7 is also expected to have the same True Tone-branded display that was introduced with the 9.7 inch iPad Pro. Kuo’s note mentions that the iPhone 7 Plus is going to feature a dual-camera setup on the back with two 12 megapixel lenses – one telephoto and the other wide angle.
Additional specs mentioned in the note include the new A10 processor with 3GB RAM, improved 3D touch sensor, Home button with haptic feedback. Kuo does predict that Apple is going to remove the 3.5mm standard headphone jack from the iPhone 7.
Apple’s official announcement of the iPhone 7 has been scheduled for September 7th. It won’t confirm anything about the new iPhone until then.
