Apple iPhone 7 Size Revealed in Leaked CAD Drawing

Apple’s iPhone 7 is being teased once again, this time in a leaked diagram which may have given away the dimensions of the next model which is predicted for launch this September.

The drawing, which was outted by Twitter source @onleaks and appears to have been created in CAD, reveals a height of 138.3mm and a width of 67.12mm and iPhone fanboys should be quick to note that these are almost the exact measurements of the previous generation iPhone 6S, which sized up at 138.3mm x 67.1mm. Many were hoping for a larger handset from Apple this year as it will be the first full step up since the iPhone 6 was released in September 2014. Bear in mind this is the standard iPhone 7 shown here and not a plus sized variant which is also likely to be in the pipeline.

Aside from its familiar measurements, the CAD sketch of the iPhone 7 shows a near identical design to the iPhone 6/6S which only the camera sensor hole appearing a bit larger, but this may be down to it being a very basic render – it was rumoured the next iPhone would have dual-lenses. We won’t know until a more detailed image surfaces as to how much has actually changed about the camera or other features but it seems size wise there’s nothing to get too excited about.

We would hope after a two year wait that Apple would release a handset that looks and feels a bit different from the previous generations but rumoured specs and features are sounding good, with the iPhone 7 running iOS 10 and with a quicker more powerful processor. Other rumours suggest a sapphire glass display, wireless charging, waterproof protection and also the removal of the 3.5mm headphone port and antennae bands to make for a thinner handset but we can’t quite tell this from the above image. Time will tell.
