Description:

The iPhone 7 Plus features a quartet of fresh (as far as iPhones go) specs on the outside. First, it meets users with a 5.5-inch Full HD LED-backlit Retina HD display with the 3D Touch technology. Second, it replaces the iPhone 6s Plus's Home button with one powered by a Taptic Engine, which means that it takes on a solid-state form (cannot be clicked, but recognizes the amount of pressure applied), while bringing back the Touch ID fingerprint technology. Next, it delivers the dual-rear-camera technology that was first introduced by Android-based brands like ZTE and Huawei, in the form of two 12-megapixel shooters (wide-angle and telephoto) decorated with a 6-element sapphire-covered lens, optical image/video stabilization, and a first-of-its-kind quad-LED true-tone flash. It is also the first iPhone (along with its 4.7-inch sibling) to rock an IP67-certified splash-ready casing.

As for its innards, the iPhone 7 Plus operates on an A10 Fusion chip with an M10 motion coprocessor tagging along, while an LTE Advanced adapter, which promises browsing rates of up to 450Mbps leads the connectivity front. Also, it offers a gigantic 256GB maximum internal memory (128GB and 32GB options are available) and has a battery that promises 1 hour longer battery life than its predecessor.

Crowning this 2016 iPhone release are a 7-megapixel FaceTime HD selfie camera and a stereo speaker system.
