iPhone 7s would be slightly thicker according to this report

Apple will soon announce its long-awaited September event where we will see the iPhone 10th anniversary and probably a few more surprises like an Apple TV with 4K support or a new generation of Apple Watch. But it will also be the event where we will see the re-edition of the current iPhone, the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus.

In this article we tell you one of the latest news related precisely to the iPhone 7s. We will also take the opportunity to analyze some of the new features it will bring.

According to a recent report by Technobuffalo, the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, which will be introduced in just a few weeks, will be slightly wider than the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

The current generation has the following dimensions:

  • iPhone 7: 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm
  • iPhone 7 Plus: 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm

And these are the dimensions that the new ones would have:

Hypothetical dimensions of the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus

Translated into millimeters this would leave the iPhone 7s with dimensions of 138.44 x 67.26 x 7.21 mm ; while the iPhone 7s Plus would have 158.37 x 78.1 x 7.41 mm.

Comparing the two generations we conclude that has increased in thickness in the last generation , but it is a tiny difference that could make it almost imperceptible to the human eye.

This increase in thickness could be due to the implementation of wireless charging , a new feature that I would share with the iPhone 10th anniversary. However may also be due to a larger battery . Be that as it may, it should not be a cause for alarm since, as I said before, we will hardly notice it.

What else is new on the iPhone 7s?

As the date of its presentation approaches, we are getting to know more about this generation that is intermediate between the current terminals and the one of the special edition. But the reality is that during these months we have hardly been able to know much about them.

One of the new features of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus would be the wireless charging , which is why it is wider. And although the aluminium used to build the iPhone 7 doesn’t seem to be very friendly to this type of charge, we could find the 7s with an identical material finish. Although also it is speculated that it could be in glass.

As with every new iPhone, it comes with a longer battery life . Although the iPhone 7 Plus performs quite well in this area, the truth is that the 4.7-inch version doesn’t perform as well as you’d like. As an iPhone 7 user, I have serious problems getting to the end of the day on battery power, so I hope the 7s will improve a lot in that regard.

As for the little, if any, camera, we know about it. I intuit that there will be improvements in the front cameras . And although these will not reach the quality of the double front camera that will bring the 10th anniversary, I think they could improve the one we have in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

One thing Cupertino’s people would keep intact would be their capabilities. 32, 128 and 256 GB for these terminals. While the 10th anniversary could come with 64, 256 and 512 GB, as we told you a few days ago.

The price is also not clear and will always depend on the cost of the special edition and whether or not they decide to remove the current iPhone 7.

The reality is that almost everything related to the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus is still an unknown and we hardly know that we will find ourselves in these two new devices. We will have to wait for the Apple event . It’s not long now, although some of us are already biting our nails.
