Not a day has gone by in the past few weeks that hasn’t brought new iPhone 7 leaks with it. “Boring” or not, Apple’s next-generation iPhones represent the most hotly anticipated new consumer electronics launch of 2016. Companies out in China have gotten their hands on leaked iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro schematics, and they’ve been building dummy units in nearby factories ever since. Of course, each new look at these iPhone 7 mockups makes fans even more excited for Apple’s upcoming launch in September.

While you were fast asleep last night, two hot new iPhone 7 leaks surfaced. One shows us a hands-on video comparison of a rose gold iPhone 7 mockup and an iPhone 6s so we can check out all the subtle differences. Then the second is a photo that gives us our best look yet at the larger iPhone 7 Plus/Pro model’s most talked about new feature.

Okay okay, so the phone’s most talked about feature is its lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, but that’s not really a “feature” per se. Instead, the upcoming new dual camera setup have Apple fans buzzing and wondering how Apple might utilize the new configuration to further enhance the iPhone camera experience. Apple’s iPhone lineup already has one of the best smartphone cameras in the world, so we can’t wait to see what Apple has up its sleeve.

Here’s the leaked photo from Weibo user KK — who may have recently given the world its first look at a working iPhone 7 — which shows off a great view of Apple’s new camera setup on the iPhone 7 Plus (or iPhone 7 Pro, or whatever Apple ends up calling the phone):


The same anonymous Weibo user also posted a video of an iPhone 7 mockup being compared to an iPhone 6s. The video, which was reposted on YouTube by 9to5Mac, shows a rose gold iPhone 7 model next to last year’s 4.7-inch iPhone, which is also pictured in rose gold. The video gives us a nice opportunity to check out the subtle differences between the 6s and Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 7. The new model certainly isn’t the complete visual redesign users were hoping for in 2016, but it’s hardly a “boring” update, as we’ve discussed ad nauseam.

Here’s the new video:

Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro are expected to debut in September.
