Rumor: The ‘iPhone 7’ won’t come in a ‘pro’ version

Despite earlier rumors, the upcoming iPhone upgrade will simply be dubbed the “iPhone 7” and “iPhone 7 Plus.” There won’t be an “iPhone 7 Pro,” according to a Macotakara report — as noted by AppleInsider. I agree.

The higher-end smartphone is expected to have a dual lens camera. Depending on which rumor you believe, the next gen iPhone will be waterproof, dustproof, and support wireless charging.

According to the global research firm TrendForce, the major hardware highlights include expanded storage for all models and dual-camera specifically for the 5.5-inch model. The iPhone 7 — pictured here in fanciful mock-ups — will be generally consistent with its predecessor appearance-wise, according to the research groupApple will hold on to LPDDR4 and the 5.5-inch model of iPhone 7 will be first in the series to carry 3GB of memory, TrendForce predicts. 

As the latest generation of mobile DRAM, LPDDR4 will continue to serve the iPhone 7 as it did for iPhone 6s. In terms of memory density, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 will be the first in series to have 3GB of memory in the form of four stacked 6GB mono-die modules. The additional memory is used to process the images taken from the dual-camera. On the other hand, the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will stick with 2GB.
