News: Questionable photos claim to show ‘iPhone 7 Pro’


A new round of photos unearthed by NowhereElse on Chinese search engine Weibo purport to show three new iPhone models, an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and the rumored iPhone 7 Pro. When viewed from the screen side, the devices labeled Plus and Pro are virtually identical in size and shape. But in images of the back, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus both feature a single camera lens, where the iPhone Pro features a dual-lens camera and what appears to be a Smart Connector.

Alleged schematics leaked in April support the existence of an iPhone 7 Pro that looks strikingly like the one pictured, but the new photos do provide a reason to be wary: The phones all feature the “S” tag currently seen on the iPhone 6s. While there has been some speculation that this year’s new iPhone may be the start of Apple moving to a three-year improvement cycle, the company using the same “S” tag that accompanied the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus that were released last year seems unlikely.
