    A new rumor popped out that 2017 iPhone would get a all new glass body with edge to edge display

    If true, while pretty, it would be such a practical waste. Everyone would case it up to keep from shattering. Then you'd have case compatibility issues with the edge to edge design

    I'll just wait until the release date to see if it's worth the worry ;)

    I am thinking there will be different types of build between the 7 and 7+. I am thinking that the 7+ could have a different build and slightly different feature set. Apple might call it a Pro model.

    If it does have a glass body, I think the glass will be extremely thin, just for aesthetic purposes, covering an aluminum frame. I think this would avoid the heavier weight of glass while protecting the aluminum from scratches.

    Go pick up an old iPhone 4s. No way is Apple going to announce a heavier phone. This rumor is junk.

    6s is heaver than its predecessor. It's not unprecedented.
