    Given the lack of differences rumoured to be from the 6S to the 7(?) it's entirely possible.

    Someone has to test it!

    Hmm interesting.

    I wouldn't be surprised though as to what happened with the iPhone 4 back in the days when an Apple employee stuck a random case over it and lost it at bar lol

    Maybe this guy is testing it out in the wild but completely forgot he was using a prototype?

    He's so getting fired. Then again I could see Apple purposely leaking the 7 just to gather more hype for the launch

    Depends what his job is.

    If his quite high up then Apple probably give him a slap on the risk and pretend it was a marketing stunt.

    If it's not a fake one they may be testing the water as usual !

    It's just Photoshopped to fool his followers. All the leaked schematics point to a larger camera positioned more to the side of the phone.

    He just removed the middle antenna band and the silver circle around the camera in Photoshop and that's it.

    Honestly, I think that most "leaks" are intentional. That's how they maintain the hype and test the waters before they're ready to officially reveal anything. Assuming this is legit, anyone who was trusted with one of these phones, and probably had to sign a s**t-load of papers about confidentiality and whatnot, probably isn't dumb enough to take a selfie with it and post it on Instagram.

    Fake. The camera looks smaller than predicted, the iPhone 7 camera will apparently be big enough that it would cover the back antenna band, this camera looks like it wouldn't.

    Hype what exactly? The showcase of zero design innovation?

    I don't think so, but you're welcome to whatever opinion you have.

    People see "BREAKING NEWS: iPhone 7 leaked" followed by more leaks and specs and whatnot. You'll get people asking "I wonder what it'll do/how's the camera gonna work/ect" It'll get more discussion going for the 7. Stuff like that is nothing but marketing to help draw up hype for the iPhone. Apple, and other companies for that matter, have pulled this stuff for years. iPhone 7 is already shaping up to be the most controversial smartphone apple has ever produced and it's not even even out yet. And like 80% of the people who are like "I ain't getting the new iPhone" will end up buying one. Like said its all marketing, with a bit of human psychology thrown into it.

    Tbh, it would be the coolest thing ever if all the 2017 iPhone specs were really for the 7. Doubt that would happen but it would be hella cool if it did...and it would be the ultimate plot twist in this iPhone saga

    We keep inching closer to confirming the lackluster rumors. I'm getting to a point where I am all but certain this will be my first time skipping an upgrade EVER.

    I wasn't interested in going to the 7. I've just upgraded to the SE & I'm more than happy.

    I don't think it is iPhone 7 and the photo is for hype
