iPhone 7 to Feature Pressure-Sensitive Home Button and Front LED Light

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus might feature a pressure-sensitive home button with hap-tic feedback, reported Bloomberg.

The next generation phones will feature a dual-camera system on the larger 5.5-inch iPhone, a re engineered home button that responds to pressure and vibrating sensation rather than a true physical click and the headphone jack will also be removed from the devices in favor of connectivity via Bluetooth, said sources that declined to be named. Apple did not comment.

iPhone demands has declined in recent quarters, partly due to the intervals between the product launches. The smartphones continue to consist a major source of Apple’s revenue, and the new models will be important during the holiday quarter. Apple is counting on the phones to raise sales ahead of expected iPhone overhaul in 2017.

The upcoming iPhones in 2016 will look similar to 6 and 6S, but one of the distinguishing features will be the removal of the two innermost antenna lines that run across the back of the current iPhones, they added.

Dual cameras on the larger iPhone will also produce brighter photos with more detail, said a person who used the prototype device. The sensors will be able to capture colors differently and simultaneously while taking a picture. The devices will produce a single merged photograph, the person added.

The dual cameras on the larger new iPhone will produce brighter photos with more detail, according to a person who has used a prototype version of the upcoming device. Both sensors, which each capture color differently, simultaneously take a picture, and the device produces a single, merged photograph, said the person.

The new camera system which comes with an ambient light sensor produces sharper images when taken in low-light environments, the person said. The combination of the merged photos from the two camera sensors allow users to zoom in while retaining more clarity the person added.

Home buttons that require physical press into the phone, will be replaced with pressure-sensitive buttons that employs haptic feedback, said the people. This mechanism is similar to that of track-pads on the latest Mac-book line.

According to a report from Mobile & Apps the new iPhone might feature a LED option on the front panel of the device. Leaked assembly instructions published by GMS Arena showed images from one of the Apple’s manufacturing plants listed strobe lens and LED option, and the reports claimed that the inclusion of LEDs on the front could indicated to the selfie camera flash functions.
