After sharing photos of the first powered on and fully functional iPhone 7 earlier, Chinese repair shop GeekBar has created a brief accompanying video that shows the smartphone's camera in action for the first time.
The individual who recorded the video can be seen panning over his MacBook and other desk objects with the iPhone 7 view finder open. The smartphone appears to be running Apple's internal testing software SwitchBoard, rather than a public version of iOS.
The short 25-second clip is too blurry to provide an accurate look at the expected camera improvements on the iPhone 7, but it does confirm that the overall design of the device seen in leaked photos is very likely the real deal.
In particular, that design is expected to include no headphone jack, dual speakers, a larger rear-facing iSight camera, and repositioned antenna bands along the rear shell. The device still has a home button, but whether it is flush and touch sensitive as rumored cannot be clearly distinguished.
iPhone 7 pre-orders could begin Friday, September 9, ahead of retail availability on Friday, September 16, according to noted leaker Evan Blass.
