Apple.club.tw also speculated that if it’s not the iPhone 7, then it could be the upcoming rumoured 4-inch “iPhone 6c”. But it doesn’t fit the puzzle as it was reported that the device will not have a 3D Touch feature. Also, the backlight assembly seems too big for a 4-inch iPhone.

We’ve read a lot of rumours, some are intriguing and some are too good to be true. Well this one belongs to the too-good-to-be-true category, because according to Chinese website MyDrivers, the upcoming Apple iPhone 7 Plus will have a 256GB worth of storage space and a 3100 mAh battery.
It’s not common to hear smartphone reaching 128GB storage capacity, if not then most of the time the device will be supported by an expandable memory with a microSD card. But who knows, maybe the iPhone 7 Plus could be the breakthrough? And the 3100 mAh battery was reportedly 12.7% larger than the iPhone 6s Plus’s battery, but it seems to contradict other reports of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be thinner.
