Apple to Release One 5.5-inch iPhone Model in 2016 with Dual Camera, Other Improvements



According to the latest report from usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple won’t release two separate iPhone 7 Plus and Pro models with single lens and dual lens cameras respectively. Instead, the company will unveil one 5.5-inch iPhone with dual camera and other improvements, for example, 3GB of RAM on board. As to the name of the handset, Kuo believes Apple will stick to the “iPhone 7 Plus”.

Notably, the images shared by @OnLeaks earlier today prove Kuo’s suggestion. As you see, the larger model has a slightly larger cutout for the rear camera and this may mean that the device will get the rumored dual lens sensor. There’re some other things that make the larger smartphone different from the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, you can take a look below.

iPhone 7 Plus Won’t Feature Smart Connector?



According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, Apple has changed its initial plans and won’t equip the iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro) with a Smart Connector.
