Over the past few months, we’ve only come across a few rumours that claim to know more about the yet to be announced Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus (iPhone 6S Plus shown below). A new rumour is claiming to know more about the phablet version of the next iPhone, specifically its battery and storage options.
Larger battery and storage option
The new rumour comes from Chinese-speaking MyDrivers.com. Currently, the Apple iPhone 6S Plus is available in 16 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB storage options. According to the report out of China, the Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be available in a 256 GB storage option – twice as much storage compared to the current largest 128 GB storage option.
Wait there’s more. The report also has something new to share about the Apple iPhone 7 Plus’ battery. Currently, the Apple iPhone 6S Plus features a 2,750 mAh battery. According to the report, the upcoming larger iPhone will feature a 3,100 mAh battery. If true, this would mean that the iPhone 7 Plus will offer 13% more battery capacity compared to its predecessor.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this information with a pinch of salt.
Here’s what we know so far. According to past reports, the next iPhones will feature a new internal system that will protect the device from water. The Apple iPhone 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus are also said to do away with the 3.5 mm earphone jack. This means that the iPhones will make use of earphones that connect via Bluetooth or Lightning port. Instead of having a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button, Touch ID is said to be embedded into the screen. Lastly, reports claim that the next iPhones will feature the A10 chip coupled with 3 GB of RAM.
According to an alleged China Mobile (the largest carrier in the China and in the world) road map, the rumoured 4-inch Apple iPhone 7C will be launched in April. However, we’re not expecting to see the Apple iPhone 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus make their official debut until September, which is usually the month of the year Apple lifts the lid and launches its new iPhone.
