iPhone 7 Camera Modules and 256GB SanDisk Chip Leak

A new series of photos surfaced on Chinese social media showing alleged iPhone 7 dual and single camera modules along with SanDisk storage units.

Will the iPhone 7 be available with up to 256GB storage? A series of new photos of alleged iPhone 7 components is suggesting that this is the case. The new photos show a dual and a single camera module along three SanDisk storage modules. The three SanDisk components have 16GB, 64GB and 256GB storage capacities. Is Apple killing the 128GB option in favor of a 256GB top configuration for an iPhone 7 Pro?

There is no way of knowing as the Weibo user did not disclose if the line up of leaked SanDisk modules is complete. SSD prices have dropped dramatically, but Apple seems to stick to the 16GB entry level option, which really starts to be ridiculous. An iPhone 7 with 32GB should be the entry model at the iPhone 6S 16GB pricing.

The new set of leaks confirms once again that Apple will offer a dual camera on the iPhone 7. The presence of a single lens module also confirms that not all iPhone 7 model will feature a dual lens camera. The watermarks on photos posted on Weibo are often covered in way to much watermarks including these new photos. I was though able to spot the Apple logo inprinted on the connectors of each of the two camera modules. 

The iPhone 7 is rumored to still be in development. Apple's chip partners reportedly are still waiting for the component orders. Foxconn has though already begun hiring workers for the iPhone 7 production. The iPhone 7 will resemble the iPhone 6S and recent leaks suggest that only the antenna lines get pushed to the edges, cleaning up the rear design. The camera lens, initially rumored to be flush with the rear, is according to leaked CAD files again protruding.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 7 in September.
