The iPhone 7 is slated for a release in September 2016. It may be too early to predict anything about the device. However, here are a few leaks that have been doing rounds in the media.

Screen
The screen is expected to get a huge boost in terms of display resolution. There are rumours that indicate a QHD or a 4K screen this time around. The display size is expected to remain either 4.7 or 5.5 inch. Some trusted tech blogs have been indicating that there could be a few design changes in the display. There hs also been a talk about the switch from LCD to OLED technology.
A edge to edge display is rumoured to be a possibility with iPhone 7.3D Touch is expected to make a comeback. What I would love to see is the resolution being bumped to 1080p.

Camera
The camera is not expected to see any changes. The iPhone 6 has seen the resolution of the camera from 8MP to 12 MP. It does not seem to be changing anytime soon. However, we may expect a few tweaks. The most expected is Optical image stabilisation. The camera lens is expected to get bigger.

Battery
The low battery life has been the most frequent issues that were reported with respect to iPhone 6. Apple is expected to hike up the battery size this time.

Hardware and software

A possibility of a Hexacore processor is doing the rounds. With the plethora of phones launching with Octa core processors, that is exactly waht is least expected from Apple. The RAM is likely to be upped to 3 GB RAM.
If the rumours in the tech blog arena are to be believed, iPhone 7 is likely to bring a Hexacore Apple A10 chipset. But seeing what Apple has been upto all these years, we may safely expect a quadcore processor and a 2 GB RAM. 3 GB RAM is most unlikely.

The iPhone 7 will coincide with the launch of iOS 10. That would be the biggest leap for iPhone fans. The best features that iOS 10 promises would definitely be the huge USP for iPhone 7.

The storage capacity of the iPhone 7 is expected to be upped to 32 GB from the current 16 GB for the basic variant. The move appears to have been a result of stiff competition from Android counterparts.

We have also being flooded with numerous leaks about what iPhone 7 is likely to offer you. The possibility of a dual SIM variant has been doing the rounds.

However, Apple has come on record stating that the new iteration of iPhone will have minor changes with respect to previous generations, while the major overhaul is likely in the 2017 models.

Pricing
The speculations are rife about the pricing as of now. The 32 GB basic variant is expected to be priced at around Rs. 52000 while the 64 GB and 256 GB versions expected to be priced at Rs. 61000 and Rs. 71000 respectively.

Here are some of the features of iphone 7 phone.

Design
There are not many ergonomic changes in the phone. But it has now got two new color options - Deep Blue or Space Black colour variant. Compared to the iphone 6 the device looks much slim though.

Display
The two variants of plus and pro are likely to have size specification of 4.7'' and 5.5'' display. The base device model will be limited to the 4.7'' inch. All three devices will have 16-32M color and resolution similar to the iphone 6 specification.

Hardware
The phone is expected to have 3GB RAM included in it. The device also includes Stereo speakers in them. These are total four speakers in them. New standard for headphone jack is being revealed 3.5mm size. So those with regular standards may need to upgrade to this new jack. No more 16GB iphone variations coming from iphone 7 onwards.

Camera
Iphone 7 series is expected to have 12 MP camera and with few changes to the front camera. The new facial recognition options in iOS 10 and onward may require better resolution. So you may see some changes for the front camera.

Comparison to iPhone 6
When it comes to comparison with iphone 6, you may find that battery life is much improved with addition of 1960mAh battery in iphone 7. The phone is also expected to see the iOS 10 update into it after the release in some continents. Apple A10 which is a dual core SOC, is likely to bring performance improvement for the iphone 7 models. Rest of the features are minor updates with nothing much improved compared with iphone 6.

Price
You can find a lot of price variations if you check most of the online sites. So unless you get official note on this, here are some of the common rumored prices. The 32 GB version of the phone is expected to be priced at 52000 Rs. The Phone 7 Plus with same storage capacity will be 60800 Rs. As for the iphone pro the price is going to be 70200 Rs. The 128GB variants are priced roughly around 78900 and 88900 Rs for Plus and Pro respectively.
