Goldgenie Might Have Accidentally Confirmed the iPhone 7, 7 Plus & 7 Pro Designs and Specs

By James O Malley on at

Uh-oh, has someone let the cat out of the bag? Goldgenie, a company which takes iPhones and makes them fit for someone with Donald Trump's sense of taste has announced its plans for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro. And the company appears to have given away some of what Apple will be officially revealing next month.

How confident can we be that these are representative of the final iPhone 7 designs? In a press release Goldgenie says that it has "been allocated a limited number of devices on the day Apple make the iPhone 7 available", so it sounds vaguely credible to us. Though take this with as many pinches of salt as you see fit. We've contacted Goldgenie to confirm whether the images are accurate or not - and will update this piece if we get a response.

So what does this suggest the iPhone 7 will look like?

If you imagine the images above looking a little less ostentatious, what's clear is that they're broadly in line with all of the rumours: The design is staying very similar to the iPhone 6S - but lacking the ugly antenna bands. There's also a complete lack of 3.5mm headphone jacks on any of the images, as per rumours. And then there's the cameras - which appear to be much larger on the 7 and 7 Plus. And again, as per the rumours, the iPhone 7 Pro features dual-cameras on the rear (see the image at the top).

Specs-wise, we're less confident in what Goldgenie is saying, not least because the site lists the same specs for the 7 Plus as the regular 7 - and the innards are something that Apple may not feel inclined to confirm to a loose-lipped third party prior to launch. But if there is any truth to them, it's interesting that the phones are listed as being waterproof. It also lists USB 3.0 support - though this presumably means USB 3.0-specced Lightning port, rather than abandoning the Lightning standard entirely.

So could Goldgenie have let the cat out of the bag? Accidentally blown the lid off of the iPhone 7 and given the game away? We'll find out if any these clichés are true some time next month when Apple is widely expected to officially announce the iPhone 7, 7 Plus and 7 Pro - with other rumours pointing towards September 7th as a likely reveal date.
