The rumors mill is saying that Apple Inc.  may launch its new iPhone with a dual-rear camera. Images posted on Chinese website Weibo show the dual-rear camera setup, according to a report published on Digit. The Cupertino-based company is likely to unveil the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September. However, Raymond James Analyst Tavis McCourt is speculating that the company may launch the iPhone 7 earlier next year.

The images show the dual-rear camera setup that company has been rumored to include in the iPhone 7 Plus/Pro. According to the report, the company may include the feature in both models, in which case there will be three variants of the iPhone 7.

The alleged images also show that the iPhone 7 will have the home button instead of a 3D Touch panel. The button, however, appears to have a more defined metallic ring around it. There are volume buttons on the left side, but no mute switch.

There were rumors that the iPhone 7’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor could be in-built to the entire display. This would eliminate the need for a Home button and allow for a much larger display, without needing to expand the overall size of the phone. It is still unclear whether the iPhone 7 will get multi-3D Touch or not.

Earlier, the rumors mill said that the iPhone 7 Plus will come with a dual-lens camera, but the standard iPhone 7 is likely to miss this feature. In a note to investors, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned that the iPhone 7 Plus will get dual-lens iSight cameras and 3GB of RAM for image processing. The analyst said that all of the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus models are coming with these features, except the 4.7-inch iPhone 7. The rumors also suggest that the dual-lens camera system will DSLR-like image quality with 2-3x optical zoom and improved performance in low light conditions.

The images also show that the iPhone will have the redesigned antenna bands. There seems to be Smart Connector pins located at the bottom of the device, according to Digit.

Headphone Jack

According to the rumors, Apple Inc.  will kill the 3.5 mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7. The company is developing a new set of wireless earbuds. Apple Insider reported that the company patented a new slimmer headphone jack technology dubbed as D Jack, having a diameter of just 2mm. However, there have been numerous rumors suggesting that the company will entirely ditch the headphone jack and shave 1mm from the phone’s thickness. The Lightning EarPods will be similar to the EarPods but will have a Lightning connector and be so completely wireless that there won’t be a wire connecting the left bud with the right bud.

Towards the end of January 2016, there were reports suggesting that Apple is working on wireless charging. Bloomberg reported that the company is “exploring cutting-edge technologies that would allow iPhones and iPads to be powered from further away than the charging mats used with current smartphones.” This seems to a cool thing, but this technology is unlikely to arrive in 2016.

Shares of Apple Inc.  have dropped by 9.74% year-to-date.
