Leaked CAD files suggest iPhone 7/Plus will come with rear Touch ID and old-fashioned bezels

Although iPhone 8 is not expected to be outfitted with a fingerprint sensor of any kind, CAD images posted a few days ago by leak aggregator SlashLeaks suggest that Apple’s iterative iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus updates might come with a rear-mounted Touch ID sensor and those old-fashioned bezels.

The images were originally obtained through a source close to the manufacturing process by TechnoBuffalo. The site claims the CAD designs reveal the exact build and key features the LCD-based phones will come with.

If genuine, the Plus model of iPhone 7s should come with a dual-camera setup out the back while the regular 4.7-inch iPhone 7s would have a single-lens camera.

These phones are widely expected to adopt a glass sandwich design of the iPhone 4/4s series.

That includes a metal frame running around the sides of the devices fusing the front and glass panels and a glass backside to minimize the antenna design and support wireless charging capability.

The sensors and button layout appear unchanged from the existing iPhone 7 series, with the haptic Home button at the bottom, the Volume up and down buttons and the Mute toggle on the left and the Power button on the right.

Unlike the OLED-based iPhone, the iPhone 7s/Plus series will stick with same LCD panels Apple has been using since 2014. “The circle at the center of both back images is where the Apple logo will be and the rectangle at the bottom is where the legal wording will be placed,” reads the report.

Lastly, these S-upgrades should run Apple’s new A11 chip and potentially include more RAM.

Earlier today, a video from a Foxconn factory has surfaced that appears to picture an iPhone 7s or iPhone 7s Plus with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor going through a quality control process.
