iPhone 7 Plus Rumors: Expect 256GB Storage Option and Larger 3,100 mAh Battery
Rumor has it that Apple’s next generation iPhone 7 Plus may feature a 256GB storage memory, along with a 3,100 mAh battery – that is approximately 12.7% larger than the iPhone 6s Plus’ 2,750 mAh battery. These will be two upgrades over the smaller iPhone 7, claims a Chinese website MyDrivers.
The report however makes no mention of whether there will still be a 16GB version, or Apple will opt for larger storage options such as 32GB, 128GB and 256GB. Further, the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are said to retain the respective 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes of their predecessors, which is in line with the previous rumors.
Earlier rumors however claimed the iPhone 7 duo to be nearly as thin as the new iPod touch, about 6.0mm and 6.5mm, which questions the credibility of the report. Also, the publication has a mixed track record at reporting on Apple’s upcoming product plans, so you should take the details with a grain of salt.
Among other rumors circulating around the web these days, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of an all-in-one Lightning connector. Further, the devices are said to feature a waterproof design, and pack 3Gb of RAM to support a faster TSMC-built A10 chip with Intel 7360 LTE modem.
As usual, Apple will most likely announce the next-gen iPhones during the second half of the year. Since then, we’ll keep you with all things iPhone 7!
