Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus in September, and rumors of these smartphones are at full peak. Latest leaked renders of the iPhone 7 Plus suggest that the handset will also be available in a deep blue color option.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are available in four hues: Space Gray, Rose Gold, Silver and Gold. Interestingly, an array of iPhone 7 Plus images in a deep blue color has originated from PCOnline.cn and was posted by Chinese publication iFeng.
The leaked images show a fully assembled and functional iPhone 7 Plus in the new color. The renders look quite convincing and also show off the highly rumored dual camera setup on the back of the handset.
A specific iPhone color has never been exclusive to a region or carrier, which means that if Apple launches a deep blue-colored iPhone 7 Plus, it will most likely be available in all markets.
Speculations hint that the next-gen iPhones will include 3 GB of RAM as opposed to 2 GB of RAM found on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are also expected to come running on the company's A10 processor.
None of the iPhones released in the past were waterproof. However, previous leaks suggest that the iPhone 7 and its bigger sibling will be water-resistant, making it more suitable for outdoor use.
If the leaked images are to be believed, then the iPhone 7 Plus will generally have the same design as the last-gen iPhones, except for a couple of tweaks.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus include a 3.5mm audio jack, but rumors have insisted that the standard audio jack on the next-gen iPhones may give way to wireless earphones. One of the recently leaked images shows that the iPhone 7 Plus, in fact, does not include a 3.5mm jack.
The absence of a standard jack will enable Apple to produce a slimmer iPhone 7 in comparison to its predecessor.
Some rumors suggest that Apple will also omit the physical home button and use a pressure-sensitive home button instead. However, one of the leaked images hints that the iPhone 7 Plus will still have a physical home button.
Speculations are rife that Apple will launch its next-gen iPhones on Sept. 7, with preorders to start Sept. 9, and the phones could hit the shelves on Sept. 16.
Apple has not confirmed any details about the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, which means that customers will have to take all rumors with a pinch of salt until the devices are officially launched.
