Last week we revealed renders of new iPhone 7 cases from accessory brand Olixar, which confirmed differences in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models including dual rear-facing cameras and a smart connector on the Plus variant. Today, we’ve actually received some iPhone 7 cases at Mobile Fun HQ! Let’s take a look.
To highlight the key differences in the new device, we snapped the cases with an iPhone 6 inside.
The first thing that jumps out is the placement of the rear camera slot. It’s slightly lower down than it was on the iPhone 6 and 6S, which should help minimise finger intrusion on your snaps.
The shape of the buttons and ports along the side of the phone show no change with volume, ring/silent rocker and power buttons all lining up with our iPhone 6 model.
The real difference is found at the bottom edge of the phone, where a wider berth where the headphone jack and microphone previously sat on the iPhone 6 will likely allow for a second speaker grill, with Apple instead opting to use its Lightning port for headphones with the release of the iPhone 7.
So there you have it, our first, but most definitely not our last, look at cases for the iPhone 7. Are you excited by the new device? Be sure to read our roundup of everything we already know about the iPhone 7.
