After waiting for several months of speculation for the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus flagship specs have been finally revealed to the public in the Apple presentation today. Both phones give great specialized upgrades over their predecessors and boast sophisticated Apple masterminded hardware decisions that manage to demonstrate how ahead of the game the organization still stays, even in a market full with compelling choices to the iPhone. Let’s take a look into their specs levels and see how far Apple has handled to take its defining product for this year.
It’s now more elegant and featuring a striking new finish, as well as a haptic Home button – but no 3.5mm jack.
Apple chose not to alter the iPhone’s middle appearance too seriously but did manage to make the iPhone 7 one that stands out. It required the refined design of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus and built an even better version of it – once back again made of 7000 Series aluminum.
To accomplish the mission of waterproofing and pick up the pace of hardware innovation, Apple discard the 3.5mm audio jack and sealed the SIM tray with rubber. The former is a necessary step towards switching entirely to digital audio. If this decision doesn’t stand in the way of sales, it is very likely that competing manufacturers will dare to follow suit and liberate designers from having to fit in a 3.5mm jack.
Not that Apple is the first brand to make this step (the Chinese smartphone producer Oppo was the first to discard it for the extremely thin R5 handset), but it’s certainly the first one with a major global influence to do so. Thankfully, Apple has supplied both Lighting-connected EarPods and a Lighting-to-3.5mm jack converter with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, producing the switch as painless as possible.
Another significant addition is the new Jet Black finish – a rather striking, high-gloss paint job that will compliment the existing silver, gold, rose gold, and dark finishes. An important alter has happened with the Home-button as well. Apple has produced a solid-state mechanism but but that’s produced to be durable, responsive, and pressure-sensitive. It really works together with the Taptic Engine, giving comprehensive tactile remarks as one presses it.
Lastly, the iPhone 7 comes with stereo speakers that deliver two times the audio output of the iPhone 6s and amplified powerful range. Simply put, the iPhone 7 should be the best-sounding iPhone ever.
Brighter and with truer, more vibrant cinema-standard colors.
Apple sticks to its tried and true LCD display era putting a 4.7-inch screen in the standard iPhone 7 and a 5.5-inch one in the iPhone 7 Plus. The 4.7-inch solar panel amenities a 750 x 1334 resolution with a pixel density of 326ppi, while the 5.5-inch screen has a 1080p resolution at a pixel density of 401ppi.
The Retina HD display has been altered with a wide color gamut that gives it the ability to render cinema-standard colors. This is supposed to make the display more vibrant and color-accurate. Additionally, the screen has become 25% brighter than the one on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Once back back again the screen helps 3D Touch era to let you interact with programs that support pressure-sensitive shortcuts.
The new iPhones are two times quicker than the iPhone 6 and 120 times quicker than the original iPhone.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus carry the beastly Apple A10 Fusion chip. Leaked benchmark outcomes have portrayed it as the fastest mobile application processor right now, with its single and multi-middle performance benchmark exceeding that of the Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890, the current flagship processors of the Orroid realm.
Reportedly, the chipset is made on a 10nm fabrication process and Apple explained that it amenities four CPU middles. One pair is said to work at a maximum clock speed of 2.4GHz, while the other pair is produced to be less energy-consuming. The advantage of this is more adept processing and amplified battery life. The iPhone 7 is said to last two hrs longer on average than the iPhone 6s, and the iPhone 7 Plus lasts a hour longer than the iPhone 6s Plus.
Reportedly, Apple has chosen 2GB of RAM once back again. Given that competing Orroid handsets are shipping with as many as 6GB of RAM this point in time this amount appears paltry. But Orroid and iOS are different behaving systems with different memory requirements so simple number comparisons don’t serve much of a objective in this case.
Storage-wise, the iPhone 7 is upgraded to 32GB in the base model, with options extending to 128GB and 256GB. Or connectivity-wise, the iPhone 7 amenities LTE Advanced support with obtain speeds up to 450Mbps.
A sophisticated 12MP camera with quad-LED flash for the iPhone 7 and a dual camera setup for the iPhone 7 Plus.
The iPhone 7 comes with a 12MP f/1.8 camera, a new camera sensor with larger pixels, optical image stabilization, and an unique four-LED flash system. The era delivers truer colors, altered low-light picture and sharper focus.
The iPhone 7 Plus doubles on that by adding a secondary 12MP Telephoto camera but but that’s able to deliver a very convincing emulation of optical zoom. Thanks to it, the iPhone 7 Plus can offer 2x of true optical zoom, and a much altered digital zoom that takes advantage of the optical magnification. Apple will also deliver a depth-of-field effect via a programs update.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are a stellar refinement of their predecessors and forward-looking smartphone that delivers cutting-edge mobile era in a familiar format. Even though it’s lacking in the novelty factor, it’s still in a position to market well, as it amenities meaningful upgrades over its predecessors while preserving their strongest sides.
Yet, competition from the Orroid side has never been more enticing, with handsets like the Honor 8 and OnePlus 3 representing strong design and functionality value for money. Samsung also commands a strong presence in the high-end smartphone market, with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge appearing as strong competitors next to the current iPhone in all important departments – design, functionality, and camera.
But the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are very impressive smartphones nevertheless, and are bound to receive a exotic welcome from the Apple target audience as well as anyone looking for a modern, capable smartphone that handles well in every aspect.
