A few days ago we told in Appleplans the iPhone 7 Home button could be pressure sensitive. Well, they have now appeared some images that show what would be the front panel of the iPhone 7 assembled at a new Home button is touch.
Apparently, the iPhone 7 will feature a panel of 4.7 inches and a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels, while the iPhone 7 Plus will have a 5.5-inch screen and a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. This would be a significant improvement in resolution compared to the current generation smartphone, but not the only change.
Now images have leaked several iPhone 7 fully assembled front panels, and there are several differences from the current generation worth mentioning in the area where the Home button will be included. The latest rumors say that Apple will replace the physical Home button by one capacitive touch and these images so confirm.
iPhone 7: physical Home button or touch?
According to rumors, the new Touch Home button to be part of the iPhone 7 would have the Force Touch technology. And thanks to electromagnetism would be possible for the user to continue feeling the “click” as if it were the physical button, an idea that would not be far-fetched considering that Apple has already applied this technology in the touchpad MacBook.
In the images of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus we showed you a few days ago, the front looked, and this was the physical Home button, or so it seemed at first glance. Anyway, we hope to leave doubts in the coming weeks with new leaks or any clue that when Apple announce the launch event of iPhone 7.
Do you think the iPhone 7 will be the first Apple smartphone with touch Home button?
