The countdown continues on the iPhone 7, something expected to be unveiled on Sept. 7 from San Francisco. Though minimal features have overshadowed its coming, the select upgrades are widely expected to be present on the iPhone 7 Plus version.

Among the potential perks that the iPhone 7 Plus will include that highly touted dual-camera setup and also higher RAM. Seeing how the Cupertino company has placed the premium on its ruggedness, its water-resistance is also expected to be better. All this comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

iPhone 7 Plus likely to carry the big revisions

The iPhone 7 is reportedly coming with 2 GB of RAM but the Plus model will boast of 1 GB RAM more (3 GB). This will compliment the expected A10 chip clocked at 2.4 GHz powering both models with the iPhone 7 Plus reportedly impressive in tests, via XDA Developers.

As far as the camera difference, the iPhone 7 is likely to sport a 12 MP main camera while the Plus model will tote the dual-camera version, each with 12 MP sensors and different element lens. Both models will have 4-LED flash which should give the necessary assist when taking photos under low-lit conditions.

Storage options

As most may have heard by now, the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus will come in three storage versions. The base model will start off at 32 GB after which choice jumps to either 128 and 256 GB. The pricing is expected to follow the same one that the iPhone 6s/ 6s Plus models offered, available in silver, gold, rose gold, piano black and dark black themes.

Gone are the 3.5 mm jacks which should make the included Lighting-to-3.5 mm adapter an interesting piece and transform the home button into a Force Touch button. The move was part of improving the water-proofing for the upcoming iPhone models as mentioned in a previous post. All that and probably more will be finally known in a couple of days when Apple finally lifts the covers on the iPhone 7.
