Allegedly genuine images that surfaced on Chinese forums this weekend, discovered by Dutch blog TechTastic.nl, seem to offer a closer look at an iPhone 7 Plus casing inside a Foxconn factory. Someone who allegedly works on the factory floor is pictured on a set of photos holding in their hand what resembles a casing for an iPhone 7 Plus, showing it from various angles. The images corroborate previous leaks and mark the first time images of an iPhone 7 unibody chassis have leaked out of Foxconn.
The part displayed on the photos is clearly made from aluminum, unlike a bunch of dummies based on the leaked schematic drawings and built from plastics.
You can see a dual-camera system on these images with a curvature meant to make that protrusion slightly more bearable. The dual cameras are said to capture an image simultaneously, combining them into one image with better contrast, especially in low-light situations.
A 4.7-inch iPhone 7 model is said to have a regular single-lens camera with possibly bigger pixels to capture more light.
Dual speaker grilles and no 3.5mm headphone jack can be seen on the photos at the bottom of the casing. Purported iPhone 7 assembly instructions indicate that the there appears to be a mic behind the left speaker grille, but not another speaker.
Given the rennet leaks, it’s reasonable to assume that iPhone 7 production is now in full swing ahead of the expected September 7 unveiling.
What do you guys make of these pics?
