In just a day the rumor mills will be able to take a breather after Apple unveils the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at its September 7 event in San Francisco. But in the meantime, we have come across another comprehensive leak courtesy of KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a good track record when it comes to Apple-related leaks. While most of what Kuo reveals lends weight to previous leaks, there are a few tidbits that have caught our attention.

It is widely expected that the upcoming iPhones won’t look a whole lot different from their predecessors. But there will be enough changes, including new color options like ‘dark black’ that will replace the space gray variant. Kuo also reveals that there will be a piano black color variant with a glossy finish, but that is likely to be sold in limited quantities and possibly restricted to higher storage variants. Speaking of storage, Kuo reiterates that Apple will be bumping the storage on the base model to 32GB, and it will be joined by 128GB and 256GB variants. The iPhone 7 Plus is expected to get 3GB of RAM, which could help in the performance of the dual-camera lens, while the smaller iPhone 7 variant will retain 2GB RAM.

One of the talking points on the Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be the dual-camera setup at the back, and Kuo reveals that it will comprise of a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. This system will replicate an optical zoom-like functionality, and will also boast ‘light field camera applications that seems similar to the ability for Lytro-style refocusing. The cameras on this year’s iPhones will be supplemented with four True Tone flash — two warm, and two cool. Apple is also expected to add an ambient light sensor, which is expected to boost the camera’s low-light photographic capabilities.

Under the hood of the upcoming iPhones will be Apple’s new A10 processor manufactured by TSMC. But what’s worth noting is that the processor is likely to be clocked around 2.4GHz or 2.45GHz, which will be a major boost over the 1.85GHz A9 processor in last year’s iPhones. In line with previous leaks, the upcoming iPhones will also feature IPX7 water resistance just like the Apple Watch. While the display size and resolution on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to remain the same, Apple will opt for a True Tone-branded display technology that was introduced with the iPad Pro last year.

As you may have probably heard by now, the upcoming iPhones won’t have a 3.5mm audio jack. Apple will instead bundle a pair of EarPods with a Lightning connector, as well as a Lightning-3.5mm audio jack adapter. Kuo however reveals that the space vacated by the audio jack will be filled by a new sensor that is expected to improve the 3D Touch experience.

Apple is also expected to give a boost to the iPhones’ audio capabilities, and this includes improving the earpiece with a new internal amplifier so that it can be used as a speaker. This will help when holding the device in landscape mode.

The upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are surely shaping up to be interesting products and something that we can look forward to. Kuo adds that Apple is expected to ship around 65 million iPhone 7 units by the end of this year, which is a marked decrease from the 82 million shipments of the iPhone 6s last year. Poor assembly yields and Apple’s high standards for water resistance are some of the reasons behind the fall in shipment numbers. Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launch event tomorrow kicks off at 10:30PM IST and we will be bringing you the latest announcements in real-time, so stay tuned.
