We are at a week from the official release of Apple's iPhone 7. Apple's new flagship phone will be released on the 7th September and as the tradition entails let us make the tour of all the speculations around the device.
From the beginning, the iPhone 7 was suppose to come with an OLED display but this rumor was later on put aside and we can now expect to have a classical IPS display with a 720p and 1080p resolution and a pixel density of 330 PPP and 400 PPP on a 4.7" and 5.5" screen respectively. This is the bare minimum. As such it doesn't seem that Apple wants to invest on the virtual reality sector where most Android phones manufacturer have invested with Quad HD displays (QHD)
This is surely the most noticeable feature on the iPhone 7. Here the overal design is the same as the iPhone 6. However here we can see differences in the part of the camera and the antennas. The antennas are now found on the top and botton edges of the phone rather than across the phone's back as on the iPhone 6. Also, there are some speculations that the home button will not be a physical button but it'll be tactile with a haptic feedback that'll allow you to feel the pressure being exerced on the button.
As you can see on the different renders of the pseudo iPhone7, there'sa dual-camera system. However this could just be available on the expensive version of the iPhone 7 (it'll could an iPhone 7 Plus). In this way the 2 cameras behave differently. One could be a normal one while the other could have a wide angle lens (as the LG G5) or one will be a normale camera and the other will be a monochrome camera (as the Huawei P9). In this way the iPhone will mixe the 2 pictures taken by the cameras to give a high quality image, however we are still not sure of the combination taken by Apple for it IPhone 7. Also we can expect to zoom in without loosing too much quality in the image if we believe the patent filed by Apple on it optical hybrid digital zoom.
No jack port.
This was one of a kind heart breaking feature to all the Apple fans out there. There are a lot rumors about the iPhone 7 not embarking a jack port. Why ? No body really knows why. The jack port could have been replaced with another set of speaker that could be stereo speakers. Apart from this, you'll have to use Bluetooth speakers or use a device that'll allow you to transform your cable speakers into a Bluetooth speakers or may be Apple will use it lightning port as a jack port ?
Here, we can expect Apple's new processor the A10. Also there are speculations that it may a 10nm by the company TSMC that allows for better energy efficiency. However chances are high that it may be a 16nm still by TSMC. That's all we know about the processor. Also we may expect a 3GB RAM and 32GB for the least expensive model and 256GB for the most expensive model

There are also some speculations on the existence of 3 iPhone 7. An iPhone 7, 7Plus and 7Pro. If this is the truth, then only the iPhone 7Pro will embark with a dual-camera system and may also include a 3 connector pin at it back that will allow various accessories to connect to it such as a powerbank cover case or a speaker with a quality output such as what we have on Lenovo's Moto Z and Z Force.
