Since the launch of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus we have been collecting rumours about the supposed iPhone 8, a terminal that would revolutionise the market in some way. The arrival of this iPhone 8 would be accompanied by two “younger” brothers so to speak, that is, the models that would correspond to the next generation of iPhone, the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
As we have just said, in the September Keynote Apple will present its star device, a device that many users have been waiting for 2 years, since with the 7 and 7 Plus models Apple did not work on the design practically at all.
Would the iPhone 7S follow the same design as the current models but in glass?
At the beginning of the year all the rumors pointed to the presentation of a single terminal, the iPhone 8, but for a few weeks now the rumors that 3 new models will be presented have been sounding strong. Without going any further, yesterday we published a post in which a developer managed to find in the iOS code 11 references of 8 new devices, of which 6 could be the models corresponding to the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus in their different capacities and, the remaining 2, to the new iPhone 8.
If we focus on the iPhone 7S, rumor has it that this handset would be built in glass instead of aluminum, in order to implement a possible wireless charge.
If we listen to the rumor that dictates the new dimensions that would have the iPhone 7S, offered by the German media Giga, the dimensions of the iPhone 7S will be 138.44 mm high, 67.27 mm wide, and 7.21 mm thick. If we compare these measures with the current iPhone 7, whose dimensions are 138.3 mm high, 67.1 mm wide and 7.1 mm thick, we see that the model with the S pigtail grows slightly.
According to the German media, Giga, this data was obtained from the carcass manufacturer Miqodo, which would have obtained this data from a source close to the production line at Foxconn.
Cases of what could be the iPhone 7S Plus, 8 and 7S according to Benjamin Geskin
We could think that this increase in size would come from the implementation of a larger battery that would give the new terminals a much better autonomy, a reason that would encourage many owners of the current iPhone 7 to make the leap to the new terminal of the bitten apple.
In any case, we’ll have to wait for September’s Keynote to discover Apple’s true intentions for 2018.
And you, would you see a small increase in size in favor of a better battery? Leave it to us in the comments.
