Apple iPhone 7 Upgrade Might Come in Red with A11 Processor

by December 9, 2016 0 comments

Apple will release an updated versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus next year, according to Japanese blog Mac Otakara.

According to the report, the smartphones will retain the same aluminum design as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, with only internal changes, including the addition of a faster A11 chip.

The report suggests that it is highly probable the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will come in an all-new red color alongside current Black, Jet Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver options.

Earlier reports had suggested that Apple will launch the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus to mark the 10th year of the iPhone, but the blog has claimed that the Apple will follow-up on the ‘S-policy’ next year, which indicates that consumers will get an upgraded version of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Apple is planning to release three new iPhone models next year, including updated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models with traditional LCD displays and a larger premium model with an OLED display and glass casing, but reports have been conflicting about which features will be included on each model.

If this report is true then Apple will be releasing a completely overhauled glass-backed iPhone with a curved, bezel-free OLED display and wireless charging at the high end of its 2017 smartphone lineup, while making only incremental upgrades to its traditional 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones with LCD displays.

Mac Otakara was first to report about Apple’s plans to remove the headphone jack and add a new Jet Black color for the iPhone 7 lineup, but its track record has not been perfect. It had reported in November that the new iPhone model will be adding a “Jet White” color for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus but it didn’t happen.

The leak also suggests that the inherent design of the smartphone will remain unchanged and the most notable update will be the all new A11 processor chip.
