iPhone 7 Could Feature A Dual SIM Feature For Better Flexibility
iPhone 7 is expected to feature a lot of hardware changes, but we believe that adding a dual SIM option for users is going to bring a ton of convenience for them. Here are all the details you wanted to know.
iPhone 7 Expected To Feature A Dual SIM Option – No Hybrid SIM Tray For Storage Expansion
Macrumors reports that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus could feature an extra flexibility option for users as far as using more than one number is concerned. With a dual SIM option, users will be able to run multiple carriers for added flexibility. While the news does seem thoroughly exciting, what is disappointing to note is that the SIM card tray which is able to get ejected from the housing will not provide an option for users to expand their storage through a MicroSD card. Apple has never provided users with an expandable storage feature, but seeing the ability to add more than one SIM card is definitely refreshing to hear.
iPhone 7’s mass production has already commenced, and it has been reported that both TSMC and Samsung have employed a new chip developing technology called FoWLP, which stands for fan-out wafer level packaging platform. With this technology, smartphone OEMs can greatly reduce the thickness of their mobile devices since FoWLP does not require a PCB. Additionally, it is able to increase the efficiency of chips by 30 percent and reduce the thickness of smartphones by at least 0.3mm. We bet Apple’s ears must be ringing when they were pitched that smartphone thickness could be using by employing this technology in mobile devices.
iPhone 7 is going to be powered by a A10 SoC manufactured on the 10nm FinFET SoC, and we believe that a large chunk of the shipments are going to belong to TSMC, while the rest of them will be from Samsung. Other details of the upcoming smartphone include 3,100mAh battery upgrade, which is huge even by Apple standards, along with on-board storage increased to 256GB. We expect that 256GB will be nice little upgrade for those who have capped their 128GB internal memory (for a premium price obviously).
iPhone 7 could also have a ‘bezel-less’ display, and both this and the upcoming 5.5-inch phablet are expected to be even more appealing than their previous generation counterparts. Moreover, the upcoming products are expected to be incorporated with EMI shielding technology, which is one of the contributors why your phone dies on you at a quicker pace.
Would you end up using multiple carriers on an iPhone 7 if it came with an option to add more than one SIM card? Let us know your thoughts immediately.
