Rumors about the upcoming iPhones are everywhere. Be it about the new iPhone 8 or the other two variants, we pretty much know everything about them so far, except for the pricing, which we also believe to go up in comparison to the existing models in the market. However, we now have a new report which shares a new info about the upcoming iPhone 7s.
As you may or may not have heard about it, the two new variants of the iPhone i.e. the iPhone 7s & the iPhone 7s Plus are expected to sport glass black instead of aluminum. It has been reported that this particular change in material was essential in order to make the iPhone 7s compatible with wireless charging. And yes, it is high time that the iPhones have wireless charging. However, it looks like this decision of replacing the metal with glass will result in the upcoming iPhone 7s to be slightly thicker.
But wait, before you jump to any conclusions, let’s be very clear about the fact that the new iPhones will not gain much thickness. The source has reported that the new iPhone 7s will gain at least a 0.1mm jump in thickness. Not just that, it will essentially gain slight thickness in all the dimensions. Now, this is nothing new to us, since Apple increased the thickness with the 6s as well.
So, if this rumor is something to be believed, then the new iPhone 7s will measure 7.21-millimeters which is only slightly thicker than the 7.1-millimeters on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s. The source also notes that the width of the device will change from 67.14-millimeters to 67.27-millimeters and the height will jump from 138.31-millimeters to 138.44-millimeters. Although the report talks only about the iPhone 7s and not about the iPhone 7s Plus, we believe that same will be the case with the iPhone 7s Plus as well.
The increase in the thickness will, however, result in a slightly thinner camera bump at the back, which is always a good thing. Having said that, we would like to know your thoughts on this. Would you be interested in buying a slightly thicker iPhone does this thing doesn’t even bother you that much? Be sure to let us know.
