iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 5SE at a glance: expectations and images

This morning the folks at CURVED / labs have provided a set of images that show what the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 5SE might look like. As such, we’re taking the opportunity to lay all the rumors, insider tips, and plausible specifications out on the table. What follows is NOT confirmed by Apple, and is instead comprised of information that is to be taken with a grain of salt – from anonymous tipsters and the like. We’ll begin with what you might recognize is a very brightly colored pink device – not exactly Rose Gold.

The images you’re about to see are renders. They’re computer-generated images made by the folks at CURVED / labs that represent what may be in the near future. On top of the stack you’ll find the so-called iPhone 5se, then the iPhone 7, then the iPhone 7 Plus.

While we’re fairly dubious about the design of these devices – especially when it comes to the extra-bright antenna lines running around the top and bottom of the device, wrapping around without lines that extend down the back. It just feels… odd.

The same goes for the very odd double-camera on the back of the iPhone 7 Plus. We can’t imagine such an arrangement of lenses and LED flashes – next to one another, maybe, but never diagonal.

Over the past few weeks we’ve seen individual rumors point toward the axing of the iPhone’s headphone jack, replacing it instead with another speaker grille. Not necessarily another speaker, but maybe more room to breathe.

The pink you see in the iPhone 5se has been rumored as well, brightening up the Rose Gold introduced with the iPhone 6S. The iPhone 5se also introduces a 4-inch “retina” display, with specs we’ve likely seen in one of the past several iPhones so as to not disrupt the universe for developers.
