iPhone 7 – Waterproof And With 3GB Of RAM?
The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are over two months old, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not interested in the upcoming iPhone, how it will look like or what new features will be added. There are already tech websites filled with rumors about the specs of the iPhone 7 and they suggest that the upcoming flagship will be waterproof and will support more RAM.
TrendForce launched some rumors according to which in 2016, Apple will come with a 4-inch iPhone, in addition to the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models, because some fans are missing the old iPhone 5S and repeatedly asked Apple to bring a smaller version, because not all of them are fond of phablets.
Another speculation is related to the collaboration between Apple and Samsung, which will edge closer next year. The South Korean giant already built the A9 processor for the current iPhones and some are whispering that the iPhone 7 might adopt an AMOLED display.
Other rumors say that the screen will be an OLED, while most of the specialists believe that Apple will continue to use the TFT-LCD display technology. No matter what type of panel it will be, it will include an eye-tracking technology, likewise that that was introduced on the Galaxy S4, which stops some actions when the user is not looking at the screen, such as Smart Pause for videos, Smart Scroll for moving web pages up or down, and Smart Stay, which prevents screen-dimming, when the user is looking at the screen.
Another addition could be the water resistance, and Apple has filled a patent called “Liquid expulsion from an orifice” which detects the presence of water and applies an electric charge over the area. But what is interesting is the increase of the RAM capacity up to 3GB, as it will be supported by the next A10 chipset.
We’ve collected more rumors which say that Apple will continue to use with in-cell panels, while Asian supply chain claimed that the iPhone 7 will have a glass-on-glass touch panel with curved edges.
