Apple iPhone 7 In 5 Different Prototypes With AMOLED Display, USB Type-C And More
According to a new rumor out of China, Apple is currently experimenting with at least five different iPhone 7 configurations, each characterized by unique hardware features.
Some of the the technologies that can be found in these prototypes include a USB Type-C connector compatible with headsets, wireless charging technology, multi-Force Touch, dual camera configurations, and fingerprint recognition technology embedded within the display, reports the popular tech blog GforGames.
The source claims that among the prototypes would be one with AMOLED display technology. Though the statement goes a bit in contrast with previous reports which suggest that the first iPhone to use an AMOLED screen will not come out before 2018.
With that said, if we look back, we have repeatedly leaked various prototypes for the upcoming iPhone that never went into production. Further, it’s on these models that often are inspired of the rumors in circulation, as perhaps for the most recent, the hypothetical abandonment of the 3.5mm headphone jack on the next-gen device, in favor of the only Lightning connector.
In any case, the iPhone 7 won’t arrive until late 2016, so we have plenty of time to update you with latest happenings on the subject. Stay tuned!
