Apple has launched its latest Smartphone, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The two Smartphone were unveiled at an event in San Francisco on Wednesday, 7th September. Apple has also officially announced the India launch date of the devices. Both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will go on sale in India on October 7, 2016. Though the company has not revealed the pricing details of the Smartphone in India, it has just announced that price will start at Rs 60,000 onwards. This means that iPhone 7 32GB version (which is the base model in terms of storage) will be available at Rs 60,000.
In comparison to the previous iPhone that is iPhone 6s plus, Apple hasn’t done much to change up the design for the iPhone 7 Plus, but it has been refined. Both phones are clad in metal with the same shape and dimensions, but while the iPhone 6S Plus has antenna bands running across the back, the iPhone 7 Plus shifts them to the top and bottom edges where they’re less visible. The iPhone 7 Plus is also available in two new colors – ‘Black’ and ‘Jet Black’, both of which hide the antenna bands, though there’s no space gray version, which there is for the iPhone 6S Plus.
The two biggest changes to the design aren’t as immediately visible, though. First up Apple’s removed the 3.5mm headphone port, which means you’ll need to go wireless and has also added an extra speaker into the mix, providing stereo sound, so music played out of the phone should sound better.
Another major change is that Apple has made its handsets IP67 certified water and dust resistant, so if you like to use your phone in the rain the iPhone 7 Plus is a much better choice than the iPhone 6S Plus. Both iPhones also have a similar 7MP Facetime camera, which is bumped up from 5MP on the iPhone 6S.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, Black color options in 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage variants. However, the new Jet Black color variant will come only in 128GB and 256GB variants.
The company claimed that this is the fastest and the best iPhone that they have ever made and this will blow competitors out of the water. Currently, the comparison is between iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7. Let’s see how iPhone 7 stands up against the competition in the market.
