A lot has been spoken about the Apple iPhone 8, which is set to debut next month. However, two other expected smartphones iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus seem to have been neglected for a while with all the hype around the 10th anniversary iPhone. YouTuber Danny Winget has got his hands on alleged iPhone 7s series smartphone prototypes, which show what they will look like.

The video is in line with previous rumors, and it suggests that the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will use LCD display panels. On the other hand, the iPhone 8 will be company’s first smartphone to feature OLED panel which is more energy efficient and advanced than LCD panels. To state the obvious, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will be successors to last year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

If the video is anything to go by, the iPhone 7s Plus will bear a similar glass back and steel frame as the iPhone 8 has been spotted in renders so far. The reason for a glass back is that Apple may extend wireless charging feature from iPhone 8 to the iPhone 7s series smartphones as well. Previously, KGI Security analyst Ming Chi Kuo has also made claims of iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 getting wireless charging feature. In addition, the iPhone 7s Plus is likely to continue with a horizontally aligned dual-camera setup at the back. To recall, iPhone 8 is supposed to be equipped with a vertically aligned dual-camera setup at the back. ALSO READ: Apple to ramp up local manufacturing, retail operations in India: CEO Tim Cook
The rest of the design of iPhone 7s Plus in the prototype hands-on video looks very similar to that of iPhone 7 Plus. The next-in-line smartphone will continue with thick bezels, Touch ID on the front, lightning port, and no 3.5mm audio jack. So far, iPhone 8 is said to ditch Touch ID completely replacing it with 3D face recognition sensor for biometric authentication. We recommend readers to take the information with the proverbial grain of salt until the smartphone goes official.
