Next iPhone's Space Black Variant Leaked in Images; Dual Camera Setup Spotted
  • Leaked image also shows Smart Connector at the back
  • The leak reiterates the addition of the dual cameras
  • Apple is expected to hold an event early next month

With less than a month to go for the expected launch of the next iPhone, the leaks have started to gain momentum. The latest batch brings focus back to the Space Black colour variant, and also the introduction of a Force Touch home button.

The images have surfaced on Weibo, and the Space Black variant sits alongside the old Rose Gold and Gold colour options, featuring a dual camera setup. This is possibly the first proper glimpse at how the Space Black colour variant will look like. However, what's peculiar is that all the three phones in the image don a Smart Connector at the bottom. The feature was rumoured in the early days, but recent leaks showed no sign of it.

Separate photos published on the Geekbar Weibo page (via Techtastic) show the display assembly of the device. The assembly reiterates the addition of the Force Touch home button which is expected to use haptic feedback, instead of the physically pressed inwards button seen on previous versions. The new home button is anticipated to understand the amount of pressure put on it, and act accordingly.


Collating previous leaks, the 4.7-inch iPhone will sport a full-HD resolution, while the 5.5-inch panel is expected to sport a 2K or Quad-HD screen. It will be more waterproof than its predecessor, and may just be called the iPhone 6SE because of the minimal design changes. There are three variants expected, and the and Plus and Pro variants will sport a dual camera setup.

There is an expected 3GB of RAM bump in the Pro variant to accommodate the new dual camera hardware. The 3.5mm audio jack will be missing, and audio will be transmitted through the Lightning port. For this to work, Apple is expected to bundle Lightning-powered EarPods, and may also unveil new Bluetooth headsets. The Cupertino giant is widely rumoured to host the launch event on September 5 or 6, and make it available in the market starting September 16.
