Apple is generally expected to launch launch two iPhone 6s devices in the fall, including a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch model. While some sources have said that the iPhone 6s will represent a major upgrade over the iPhone 6, one new report speculates that you’ll have to wait until the iPhone 7 launches to get some key features that Android users can enjoy today.
Per Barrons, Citigroup’s Jim Suva penned a research note in which he talked not just about his predictions for the upcoming iPhone 6s but about his expectations for 2016’s iPhone 7 model as well.
According to Suva, the iPhone 7 might feature higher-resolution displays than current models, which could match existing 2K displays that are available on Android devices. Furthermore, the iPhone 7 will likely have a camera that’s at least as good as Samsung’s camera on the Galaxy S6, especially when it comes to aperture size. More interestingly, Suva says the iPhone 7 could have two rear cameras, a feature that would not only let you take 3D pictures and video, but also enable other work related features and services.
One other interesting iPhone 7 feature would be a higher-capacity NAND memory module (256GB). The 2016 iPhone could also be waterproof, a feature that’s also available on some Android handsets today.
Suva also said the iPhone 7 could have slimmer camera modules that would not protrude from the back of the handset, support for more LTE bands, increased battery capacity, some sort of fast-charging support, a relocated headphone jack (back to the top side) and an eye-tracking sensor.
Finally, the most important feature of the iPhone 7 might be flexibility. The smartphone might bend intentionally, so that you don’t accidentally damage it.
