Apple iPhone 7S Features: Apple’s iPhone line-up, has no doubt maintained its position as the most premium flagship smartphone line-up in the global market and the Cupertino-based tech firm has made it a point to make sure that the market stays that way. In September 2016, the Tim Cook-led tech giants unveiled their latest flagship, the iPhone 7 variants into the market which were an immediate commercial success among at least a certain section of people.
Many Apple fans skip the company’s major releases and instead opt for the upgraded version that debuts a year after with an “S” after the model’s number. Sure, the iPhone 7 can do a lot of things that the iPhone 6s can’t, but the iPhone 7s is sure to blow both of its predecessors out of proportion with new features and, potentially, a major redesign. Apple has used the “S” designator since releasing the iPhone 4s in 2011. Rumors have been strife that Apple would skip out on the ‘S’ variants for their iPhone 7 and directly move on to the iPhone 8 considering 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone flagship line-up. That would be highly unlikely as the iPhone 8 is still in the works with that OLED display technology Apple had patented and still has quite a bit of time before plans for the device materialize.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus provided tech enthusiasts a host of the best features to savour, with the device certainly packing in the best of specifications with ever increasing technological advancements each day. Now, Apple’s 2017 September event is slated to see the company roll out the premium “S” variants of the iPhone 7 which is almost imminently slated to feature significant ramp-ups from last year’s device. Now let's dig deep into the topic and discuss about all the probable iPhone 7S features right here right now.
iPhone 7s and 7s Plus Features/Specs
iPhone 7S Design: Though Apple has maintained a pattern of not making its “S” smartphones different from the base iPhones on the design front, it seems that the tech firm is looking to change things up a bit with the iPhone 7s variants. The new devices which are due to see a market release in September later this year are pegged to be radically different from their predecessors in terms of design, the highlight of which being a 100% screen-to-body ratio completely eliminating bezels on the front panel of the device. Furthermore, Apple is expected to bring back the original full glass body from the iPhone 4s variants, which the company is touting, will heighten the aesthetic look of the device by leaps and bounds. The devices, which are due to be significantly lighter than their base variants will reportedly sport fingerprint scanners embedded on the screen itself.
The iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will also be launched without the 3.5mm headphone jack which might not be a welcome news among Apple enthusiasts waiting for the device. The previous iPhones before the iPhone 7 all had the headphone jacks but the removal of the port in the iPhone 7 did meet with a lot of criticism considering the fact that the AirPods by Apple were neither convenient nor high on repairability.
The iPhone 7s variants will also improve on the water resistivity features of the base iPhone 7 devices featuring iPX7 water resistant feature, the same as Apple’s smartwatch. This particular feature is slated to make the device completely waterproof from Splashes or minor exposure to water making it water resistant up to a depth for of 1m for a period of 30 minutes.
iPhone 7S/7S Plus Display: Apple’s iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will retain the same display specifications as the base models of the device featuring 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD displays respectively. Both the displays of the device will have Ion-strengthened glass protected by Oleophobic coating. The iPhone 7s will have a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels with a pixel density of 326 ppi while the iPhone 7s Plus is slated to sport a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels with a pixel density of 401 ppi. Supporting Wide-Gamut Display, it is also believed that 4K Video and Blu-ray will also run hassle free on the upcoming device and the video output generated will be phenomenal with the phone sporting Ultra-HD graphics display.
Processor: The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were rolled out with Apple’s A10 fusion processor, a 64-bit, four-core processor with over 3.3 million transistors which along with being the fastest chipset in the world, is pegged to be 120 times as fast as the chip in the first iPhone. Trust Apple to continue setting their own benchmarks with their processors as the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus are due to be rolled out with the new A11 chipset by Apple which is currently in works at Cupertino. The A11 Fusion chipset, which is slated to be incorporated in Apple’s forthcoming flagship variants is said to be an eight-core processor which will provide a 30 percent performance boost from the A10 itself. And not only will the A11 lay stress on overall speed and performance of the device, the 10-nanometer chipset will also play a vital role in preserving battery life of the iPhone.
Memory: The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s plus will both feature a similar 3GB RAM specification as in the base models of the flagship. However, coming to on-board storage of the device, Apple had launched a 32/128/256GB variants for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. However, this time, the tech company might be open to plans of rolling out a 64GB variant. Now whether this will come at the cost of the 32GB variant or whether Apple will be keeping all four storage options in the device is something which only the company knows for now.
Software: Apple is set to launch their new smartphone platform, the iOS 11 at the WWDC conference 2017 and there isn’t a shred of doubt in the fact that the iPhone 7s variants will be rolled out with the new OS from Apple. iOS 11 bears significant improvements from the previous iOS 10, the highlights of which include a much-better eye-grabbing device interface, a power saver doze mode, Apple Maps application as well as a much improved and smarter Siri.
Apple iPhone 7S Camera: Optics on iPhones have been a considerable highlight for Apple’s flagship as the devices are already hailed to support DSLR-like photo capturing camera systems. The iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will sport significant ramp ups in the camera department with the 7s sporting a 16MP f/1.8, 28mm rear Shooter with phase detection autofocus, OIS and quad-LED (dual tone) flash.
The 7s Plus will be yet another beast when it comes to the camera department retaining the dual camera setup but featuring a ramp up in the sensor count. The device is expected to feature a Dual 16 MP, (28mm, f/1.8, OIS & 56mm, f/2.8) lens manufactured by Sony and additional features along with it like phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom, quad-LED (dual tone) flash, geo-tagging, simultaneous 4K video and 8MP image recording, touch focus, face/smile detection and HDR (photo/panorama).
Both the devices will feature 7MP f/2.2, 32mm front shooters capable of recording video at 1080p@30fps, 720p@240fps along with face detection, HDR and panorama features.
Battery: The iPhone 7 variants have radically improved the battery performance of the iPhone line-up by housing powerful non-removable batteries which have significantly ramped up battery life in the smartphones. The 7s will feature a non-removable 2150 mAh battery (7.45 Wh) Li-Ion battery which will give an estimated talk time of up to 16 hours on 3G network while the iPhone 7s Plus is pegged to house a 3300 mAh Li-Io battery which is slated to provide consumers with a talktime of up to 26 hours on 3G networks.
There is no doubt in the fact that we would be seeing the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus in Apple’s scheduled launch event in November. Something every Apple enthusiast is looking forward to today is to see how the “S” variants improve on the currently existing iPhone 7 ine-up and how the company changes things up for their 10th anniversary device.
