We've seen and heard an overwhelming number of leaks, rumors and reports on the iPhone8, but it's time for the iPhone 7s Plus that takes the limelight. 

Tipster Sonny Dickson has provided 9to5Mac with three photos of a purported iPhone 7s Plus dummy unit, which seem to confirm some of the earlier rumors about an "all glass" design and aluminum metal frame. The use of a glass casing suggests that the iPhone 7s Plus could support "wireless" inductive charging although the feature might not be enabled at launch.

The glass casing also allows antenna signals to pass through easily, which might explain the absence of antenna lines on the dummy unit. In terms of looks, the iPhone 7s Plus doesn't seemt to deviate much from the current iPhone 7 Plus. The same could be said about the iPhone 7s. Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones next month with the high-end model of the iPhone 8 likely to cost above US$1,000 (approx RM4,280).
