Is Apple so proud of the rear shell design of the iPhone 7 to put it on top of the packaging? A new leak suggests so much.
The iPhone 7 is almost here. Tim Cook will unveil the new iPhone on Wednesday at 10am PDT in San Francisco. French leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer just posted a photo of an alleged iPhone 7 packaging on NoWhereElse. The cover of the box shows the backside of a rose gold iPhone 7. The iPhone 6S box shows the front of the iPhone with the fantastic fish background. Is Apple so proud of the redesign of the antenna lines and camera lens setting to present in on the cover of the packaging?

It appears to be a weird choice. Hemmerstoffer also cautions that he cannot confirm the authenticity of this iPhone 7 box shot. On the other hand, how else should Apple show the difference between the iPhone 6S box and a iPhone 7 box? Apple faced though the same problem with the iPhone 6S. The solution Apple chose was to show a different background image. On the iPhone 6 box you find flowers and on the iPhone 6S its fish.
An alleged bottom side of an iPhone 7 Plus box has leaked earlier, these shots are also easy to fake.
The iPhone 7 will feature besides the new A10 CPU, up to 256GB storage starting at 32GB, improved cameras and an improved iPhone 6 design. The home button is likely going to be touch sensitive. Apple will unveil the iPhone 7 on Wednesday at 10am PDT at a media event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
A leaked Geekbench test report confirms 2GB RAM and about 30% increase in performance over the iPhone 6S. The report also reveals a iPhone9,3 iPhone identifier, raising hopes that there will be three iPhone 7 models: iPhone 7 (iPhone9,1), iPhone 7 Plus (iPhone9,2) and iPhone 7 Pro (iPhone9,3).
