Rumours of late have tipped Apple to announce a few variants of the next iPhone, including a larger Pro version, in September. However, the top-of-the-range Pro could be delayed until next year, according to a new report.
Nikkei says that its sources say that Apple is changing its plans completely. It writes, "Initially, Apple had planned two versions of iPhone 7 Plus, one with a single lens and one with a dual lens. The single lens edition has since been ditched."
Apparently, it is being scrapped because of weaker than expected sales of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, mainly due to increased competition from Samsung and Huawei.
The dual-lens camera device was rumoured to be called the Pro, but it looks like it’ll simply bear the Plus moniker instead.
The Pro name will reportedly be used in 2017 for a device with a glass casing and the Touch ID sensor embedded into the display.
