Unbox Therapy, one of YouTube’s most popular channels with over 5 million subscribers, has attained a final chassis of the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus (also rumored to be called the 'iPhone 7 Pro').
In a detailed hands-on operation, the site viewers see all the major hardware changes coming to the larger 5.5-inch model including the radical dual lens camera, the missing headphone jack, twin external speakers, the inclusion of a Smart Connector and the widely rumored new blue color option for the first time.
Using digital calipers Unbox Therapy host Lewis Hilsenteger also found the new iPhone 7 Plus to be fractionally slimmer than the current iPhone 6s Plus. That said at 7.14mm to 7.18mm this is both within a margin of error in the calipers and the construction of the chassis itself. As it stands the iPhone Plus range is still massive and remains the largest 5.5-inch smartphone in the world.
As for the source of the chassis, it comes from Besound – a wireless headphone developer.
Given its reputation, there is a great chance that this leak is authentic. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are now at the mass production stage in the run up to their unveiling and release in September so keeping a lid on a supply chain of this magnitude is virtually impossible.
