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.

While I am sure the hate will continue to roll in, I think the back of the phone - with the larger camera and modified antenna bands - looks far more attractive than the 6 or 6S. (I maintain, however, that I am currently considering a Nexus for my next phone more seriously than any year previously.)

Also, my vague impression is that the home button appears not to be touch-sensitive. I may be wrong.

So whats the point of getting your hands on a prototype, to make a video, to hopefully make money, risking your job(most likely) then posting a video that is blurry and doesn't show any of the ports(lack of), home button, or anything of importance.

I call fake

I don't think the person who receives the prototype has any risk to their employment. The factory worker that person paid to smuggle it out for them did but they just received a small pile of cash for that risk.

Oh wait better they should have made the phone slightly thicker to make rear flat and also should have made room for bigger battery
A phone the thickness of an iPhone 4/4s or 5/5s and the size of a 6/6+ would be unpleasant to hold, especially in a case.

If you don't believe me, I suggest trying to pick up one of those phones after using a 6/6s. The difference is actually jarring.

Clearly and obviously not an Iphone, its a droid wanna be knock off. Just look at the menu system when he/she shows the "camera roll" and also since when did the button change to take a picture to "Ok". I have ran the new IOS10 and none of those features or looks are correct.

I am using my iPhone 6s plus in spigen slim armor case since it's launch and it is a bulky case nothing is jarring

Resist the urge to complete your iPhone collection and wait for 2017. I am not saying Apple will include some great internal improvements, but the spend nearly $1,000 for what is basically iPhone 6SE doesn't seem logical. The iPhone 2017 seems to be where a lot of the innovation will be applied. Sure, if you have a iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s, this might be a great upgrade.
