Apple is preparing to unveil its next-generation iPhone at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, a major event for developers that takes place on September 13-15 in San Francisco.
It has already announced the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but AppleInsider was able to track down several of the device’s key specs at the conference.
According to several sources familiar with the device, the iPhone 7 will be priced at $1,099 and will feature a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, a 6.2-inch Super Retina display, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 2,500mAh battery, a dual-SIM card slot, and a MicroSD card slot.
The iPhone 7’s rear camera is said to feature optical image stabilization and it will feature an A10 Fusion chip that’s up to 5 times faster than its predecessor.
The iPhone 7 is said be powered by a new 5GHz chip that will offer a 50 percent increase in processor performance over the iPhone 6s.
Apple is also expected to release a smaller and lighter iPhone 7 with a 5.7-inch OLED screen, a fingerprint scanner, a 5-megabyte RAM chip, and an 8MP rear camera.
