We all know by now that Apple is launching not just one or two, but three iPhones later this year. The most premium of all – the iPhone 8 – will mark the Cupertino company’s 10 years of being the market leader. Recently we’ve seen iPhone 8 renders and live-pictures that give us our best look at the forthcoming device. And apparently, everyone wants to hear only about the iPhone 8, while the other two – iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus – faded into the shadows. But today, we have the iPhone 7S in the limelight; thanks to Sonny Dickson (via Slashleaks) who tweeted a few pictures of what looks like an iPhone 7S Plus dummy model.
Sonny Dickson is one of the most reliable leakster when it comes to Apple devices. So, this should be pretty legit! Or maybe not, we can’t be sure of that now. If we are to believe in this leak, then the forthcoming iPhone 7S Plus will have a feature that was not present in the earlier iPhones – Wireless Inductive Charging. While Android users might be quite familiar with wireless charging, the feature never made its way to the iPhones earlier.
Based on the new leaked pictures, the forthcoming iPhone 7S Plus will have a glass back, instead of an aluminum rear. This could be to facilitate wireless inductive charging, that wouldn’t be possible otherwise. And, if that’s true, you can say farewell to the ‘traditional’ Lightning Cable in favor of new inductive charger pad. It’s a nice feature to have, if you ask me!
The pictures suggest that the handset will come packed with a dual camera setup, which is indeed expected considering that the current iPhone 7 Plus has two cameras on the back. However, we currently have no details regarding the camera resolution and sensors that will debut on the upcoming iPhone 7S Plus. Besides that, the 7S Plus features a design that Apple iPhone users are quite familiar with. It’s just the same as the current iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus for that matter.
While it’s not official, we expect the iPhone 7S Plus to launch alongside the iPhone 8 and 7S at a September media event. Plus, it should cost around $800 in the US market when it finally goes on sale following the launch.
