• Leaked iPhone 7 Prototype Case Hints at Four Speakers & More


    Today some alleged photos of the iPhone 7 case have been leaked by the reliable sources of Nowhereelse that show the 4.7-inch handset as having four different speakers. This is the first time that a rumor or leak has pointed to the iPhone 7 coming with four different speakers. Previous leaks have pointed to the handset likely coming with a stereo speaker set up at the bottom.

    The prototype iPhone 7 cases show two speakers sitting at the bottom and two at the top. Keeping in mind that the iPhone 7 houses a relatively small 4.7-inch screen, it remains unclear how having four speakers on the handset will be beneficial in any way, except for obviously being loud. The photos also show a missing cut out for the 3.5mm audio jack, which once again confirms that Apple will be ditching the jack with its upcoming new iPhone 7.



    The case in the photos features a single camera set up at its rear unlike the iPhone 7 Plus that is rumored to sport a dual camera set up. The photos were taken from a promotional video by an Italian casemaker, who apparently received an iPhone 7 prototype ahead of its unveiling in September to manufacture cases for it.

    This is the first time that we have heard about the iPhone 7 featuring four different speakers. Until and unless other sources corroborate this news, I will recommend our readers to consider this as a rumor and take it with a pinch of salt.

    The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to feature a minor redesign over their predecessor that will see the ugly antenna lines being removed from the rear. All leaks do point towards Apple focusing more on the camera of the handsets, instead of a complete design overhaul as it has usually done every alternate year.

    What are your thoughts?

      I think this is fake. I just donít see Apple doing that.

      Not to mention the fact that the existing camera module is large enough that it would conflict with any speaker, SHOULD Apple decide to go to a 4 speaker system...

      The only way I could see that is if the filled the 'gap' found under the screen, top center, but that 'gap' is for the earpiece and front facing camera modules...

      This is freaking stupid! Why get rid of 3.5mm jack? I understand the evolving nature of technology, bt capabilities, use of adapter etc. But I don't want to carry another adapter for my headphones! Apple is dying in my eyes...

      According to the article before this one the rumor is that the 7 will have a single camera and the 7 plus will have the dual camera setup... Prolly not fake, seems very likely actually...
