iPhone 7 or iPhone 6c? Leaked image shows display components, dismisses OLED screensReuters

Apple iPhone 7 rumours are becoming a regular thing now. The latest set of leaked images offer a closer peek into the development of the unannounced iPhone 7. Apple Club Taiwan, a prominent Taiwanese website, has shared what appears to be the display component of the next iPhone.

The images leaked by the Taiwanese source do not offer any specifics of the design or share any features of the iPhone 7. But they do indicate Apple might skip the OLED display technology for its iPhone 7 and go with the regular LCD screen. Apple Club Taiwan also pointed out the missing 3D Touch wafer, hinting that the leaked images might be the display components of the iPhone 6c and not the iPhone 7.

Apple iPhone 7 is not due for release until later this year, but the rumoured four-inch iPhone 6c might be launched as soon as March or April. Earlier reports have pointed out that the mini iPhone in 2016 will skip the 3D Touch feature, which aligns with the new set of images.

There have been several variations in the iPhone 7 rumour string. Some leaked prototypes have hinted that the next iPhone 7 will feature USB Type-C port and ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack, while some speculated that an OLED display is certainly in the offing. But sources with knowledge of Apple's plans have revealed OLED display in iPhones is not possible until 2018, which by Apple's numbering scheme links to iPhone 8.

A new patent document published by the US Patent and Trademark Office reveals the iPhone 7 might come with dual-camera soon lens technology, which lets the users adjust focus on the subject after clicking an image.

Due to conflicting in reports about iPhone 7 specifications and design, it may be wise not to take these rumours too seriously.
