iPhone 7 front panel image – larger earpiece; sensor moved

We continue with the “leaks”, always in quotes because it is very likely that Apple is behind them all. Around the same time as the first video of an iPhone 7 in action, a component of Apple's next smartphone also appeared: the front panel. This supposed front panel iPhone 7 It is very similar to the iPhone 6/6s, but there are some differences that catch our attention, starting with the position of the sensors.

I've read some media outlets that noted that this panel had two sensors, but they were wrong in thinking that this was a new thing. Previous models also have two sensors above the earpiece, but one of them is not visible unless you look closely. This is why tempered glass protectors have a hole in this area. What is different, as we mentioned earlier, is the position of this sensor: in the image panel of this post it is on the right side, whereas in previous models it was on the left.

iPhone 7 earpiece will be bigger

The second thing that stands out is helmet size. on iPhone 7 will be bigger and that gives me the feeling that it will be both wide and high. Personally, I've never had a problem hearing my contacts when we talk on the phone, so we can only speculate as to why this hole has increased in size.

The 9.7-inch iPad Pro comes with a display True tone, a new system that analyzes the environment to show us a range of colors that matches the colors around us, forcing us to strain our eyes less. Changes to one of the iPhone's sensors are likely to have something to do with this True Tone display. What I don't know is why they made the earphone hole bigger. We will leave doubts from September.
