Rumors about the iPhone 7 stands out above everything else: the disappearance of 3.5mm port for headphones and the possibility of including a dual camera. The worst of these rumors is that everyone will ensure that only a model that includes this camera with two lenses and will be a premium model Plus version. Today comes a new rumor says that this higher-end iPhone will adopt the same name that has adopted the latest iPad name and will be called the iPhone 7 Pro .
One source of the rumor says that Apple will launch models with different specifications is the analyst at KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, who says that Apple will launch two models has been launching since 2014 (iPhone SE apart) plus a third with a exclusive point that included in the current Plus model, which would be added to the optical image stabilizer (OIS) video camera 5.5-inch model.
The new rumor comes from the Chinese website MyDrivers [Google Translate], a medium that already has long provided details about the iPhone 7 and iPhone SE. The problem is that, so far, none of the two devices has seen the light, so that the accuracy of mydrivers is, at best, questionable. As always and above all rumor, we must maintain skepticism to the presentation of the device.
If finally the next 4-inch iPhone is called iPhone SE, it could be the perfect time to eliminate the numbering of all Apple devices and start treating them like computers, devices that receive the same name all the time. To find out which model we have, we have to rely in the year. The problem with this is that I do not sell much (facing the marketing) an iPhone without a specific name as one with a new name.
Looking back to 2014 where they released two new models, Apple launched the model since it is normal and another model Plus, so it does not seem unreasonable that in 2016 launched a 4.7-inch iPhone 7, 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus and an iPhone 7 Pro, it would be an iPhone 7 Plus with high-end hardware, in this case, the two-lens camera.
