Over the weekend we saw a trio of iPhone 7 leaks showing the redesigned antenna lines, dual-camera module, speaker grilles, and a new 256GB storage chip. Now, HDBlog has uncovered a new set of images from Chinese web forum Baidu claiming to show schematics for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The images show the dual-camera being exclusive to the larger model, while Smart Connector holes are nowhere to be seen.

The images show molds of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7  Plus next to one another. As you can see in the images, the dual-camera set up that has been previously reported on appears to be exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus. The 4.7-inch model, however, will still likely see camera upgrades thanks to a larger camera module.

Furthermore, holes for the Smart Connector are nowhere to be found on the larger iPhone 7 Plus. In the past, we’ve seen claimed images of the device with Smart Connector holes. A report from last week out of Japan claimed that the iPhone 7 didn’t support the Smart Connector like previously rumored either, as did a report from earlier this month. While it’s possible that the Smart Connector holes could be added at a later date, it’s looking more and more likely that the initial reports that claimed the iPhone 7 Plus would support the feature were inaccurate.

This weekend a new component leak showed the dual-camera module for the iPhone 7 Plus, as well as a new 256GB storage option. That report suggested that the storage lineup would be 16GB/64GB/128GB for the Plus model this year. Additionally, another leak showed a total of four speaker grilles, much like the recent iPad Pro models. Finally, a set of images this weekend claimed to show the iPhone 7’s redesigned antenna lines, screen cables, and a protruding camera.

While discussing rumors is fun, Apple is expected to officially announce the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus this fall. We’ll likely see software updates unveiled at next month’s WWDC, but iOS hardware announcements are generally saved for the fall. So until then, settle in for a few more months of rumors.
