Apple launches iPhone 7

Apple has officially launched iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last Wednesday amid a lot of fanfare and hype and promises galore. The biggest USP is that the phone comes with bigger storage at the same price slab as the iPhone6 and the powerful cameras. Apple has done away with the 16GB and 64GB variants and with sleekness epitomized in the smartphone genre, this stylish phone seems amazing at this stage. Here is a sneak preview of what it will be like.

Launch date in India and pricing:

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in India from October 7. The base variant will be priced at Rs. 60,000 for the 32GB model. However, the detail pricing for other models have not been announced so far. So, wait with bated breath as Apple slowly unveils the prices.

The name Apple has always generated huge curiosity and the expectations are humongous this time.

•The phone promises to be water resistant which is a great add on to the already burgeoning i-phone loving fraternity. It will also be dust resistant.
•Apple claims to have overhauled the cameras. iPhones have great cameras but this goes a step ahead, sporting a new dual camera system, with 12 MP sensors and larger aperture for detailed photos and videos. And, for the selfie addicts, it will have a 7 megapixel front shooter.
•The phone will have the most powerful chip which will make it two times faster than iPhone 6 and the battery life will be much longer.
•The latest version has been designed aesthetically with no space for headphone jack. It will rather have ear pods with a lightning connector. The system will be wireless creating an awesome effect.
•This time, the phones will be available in more colour options and black is back. Also, they will be the brightest with the most colourful display ever.
•iPhone 7 will have stereophonic sounds with a new stereo speaker system.

In short, iPhone7 is a smart phone connoisseur’s delight from the previews. It will certainly pinch the pocket, but the value additions seem too attractive not to go for one. The final verdict will only be out on Friday, October, 7. And like Bollywood blockbusters, the mandate on iPhone 7 will be out in India.
