The Apple Battle: iPhone 7s Plus vs iPhone 8 And iPhone 7 Plus
Apple is said to reveal three new iPhones next month, the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus, and the iPhone 8. While there are plenty of leaks for the latter, the latest dummy video of "iPhone 8" and "iPhone 7s" has appeared comparing iPhone 7S Plus to the iPhone 8.
The dummy is coming from the Tech vlogger Danny Winget, who claims to got hold of factory dummy units for both upcoming iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8 that has allowed him to do a design comparison live on camera. However, the legitimacy of this video can't be verified, as reported by Mac Rumors.
The clip reveals that the iPhone 7S Plus has a glass back, which the Youtuber claims have been introduced to enable wireless charging functionality, which is a first for the iPhone. Apple has naturally opted for aluminum backs in recent years, so the new design looks more Samsung-like, Apple Insider reported. Other notable features in the upcoming iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8 include a stainless steel finish on the sides and a dual-camera on the back side.
According to the video, the iPhone 8 dummy unit has no Home button and no Touch ID as a consequence. This design decision has been heavily rumored, as it allows Apple to adopt an all-screen front aesthetic, similar to what everyone has seen from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 earlier this year.
The iPhone 7s Plus dummy unit, per the video, boasts the same silver glass backing that was seen used in iPhone 8 dummy models. These colors are in line with information sourced from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who claims that Apple is planning to release all three devices in three colors - silver, gold, and black. The upcoming iPhones also tipped to includes a shiny metal frame connecting the two glass halves.
It is rumored that Apple will instead utilize a 3D facial recognition system for user authentication instead of Touch ID feature. Based on the speculations, these dummy models leaked in the video offer a solid look at what to expect from Apple's 2017 iPhone lineup.
