    The two phones are the same thickness i do not see why they couldn't do this besides having the option of upgrading it next year so people continue to buy phones.
    How many of you are buying the 4.7 and are upset about the camera upgrade?
    Seems like a much bigger deal then the whole image stabilizing plus only feature they had on the 6/6+

    I don't think it's due to thickness. Pretty sure it's more surface area in the plus.

    Unsure that thickness is the only factor. The plus is quite a bit wider too.

    That said I'm not saying it's impossible. Just that the camera clearly also takes up more space "left to right".

    The same thing was said about the reason they couldn't include the same camera in the smaller phone in previous models and now they have it. Same/similar camera bump(minus the other lens) now also.

    Pretty much this. Eventually it will be included in future iPhone releases, though I don't know when that will be.

    The same thing was said about image stabilizing when the 6+ had it and the 6 didn't. Now the smaller phone has it.

    Not by me, then go talk to the person that actually said that.

    ...because otherwise Apple won't be able to get another $120 from your purse/wallet

    Absolutely. It can be done without a doubt. It's a shame also because I really wanted to downsize to the 4.7 inch but I want the camera in the 7 plus. I CANNOT wait until Apple gets rid of the ridiculous top and bottom bezels. Guess I'll have to deal with it at least another year. o_O

    $120 price increase to get the Plus. And the camera definitely does help justify that higher price. And the rumor is you get another Gb of RAM as well as more battery life.

    When I think about things like this I always come down to the conclusion that technology advances over time and engineers learn new ways to create smaller parts and fit more into tighter spaces in small devices and I believe that's why image stabilization wasn't available in the 4.7 phones 2 years ago. Apple also has really high standards and doesn't just jump on the feature bandwagon without a lot of testing to pass their standards.

    RAM is needed for bigger phone and with bigger phone comes better battery, that's a given. Apple could've thrown in same camera on 4.7 leaving customers with only the choice of preferred size. Of course that would hurt Apples bottom line so they only leave it in the plus. Apples success isn't an accident.

    They want you to buy the expensive one, simple as that...

    You seem to be forgetting that removing the headphone jack gave a lot of free space.

    The headphone jack was removed so Apple can sell more Lightning accessories.

    But it did make more space. That's a fact.

    They can't add it because they ran out of ports to remove.
