iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus India Launch Today: Everything You Need to Know

iphone7-plus

India’s biggest smartphone launch of the year is upon us – Apple’s release of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Unlike recent years, where we’ve seen midnight launches, the smartphones are expected to become available to buy via online retailers and Apple authorised resellers in the country from 7pm IST on Friday.

This year’s iPhone models come in three storage variants – 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The 32GB iPhone 7 has been priced at Rs. 60,000, while the 128GB iPhone 7 has been priced at Rs. 70,000, and the 256GB iPhone 7 has been priced at Rs. 80,000. The 32GB iPhone 7 Plus has been priced at Rs. 72,000, the 128GB iPhone 7 Plus has been priced at Rs. 82,000, while the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus has been priced at Rs. 92,000.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in Gold, Jet Black, Matte Black, Rose Gold, and Silver colour variants in India. Apart from the new colours and new storage capacities, there are several major differences between the last generation and the current generation iPhone models. The biggest of these are the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack (Apple is bundling a Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter with each phone however) and IP67 rating for dust, splash, and water resistance. The current generation is lighter and faster than the previous, and comes bundled with Lightning-powered EarPods.

The iPhone 7 sports a 3D Touch-enabled 4.7-inch Retina HD display with a resolution of 750×1334 pixels at a pixel density of 326ppi, and a wide colour gamut. It is powered by the Apple A10 Fusion processor alongside the M10 motion coprocessor. It bears a 12-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a six-element lens, optical image stabilisation, a Quad-LED True Tone flash, and a sapphire crystal lens cover. The rear camera is capable of 4K video recording at 30fps, and 1080p HD video recording at 60fps. The FaceTime HD camera on the front bears a 7-megapixel resolution and is capable of 1080p HD video recording. It measures 138.3×67.1×7.1mm, and weighs in at 138 grams.

The iPhone 7 Plus on the other hand sports a 3D Touch-enabled 5.5-inch Retina HD display with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels at a pixel density of 401ppi, and a wide colour gamut as well as a bigger battery than the iPhone 7. It bears a dual rear camera setup – one 12-megapixel wide angle lens camera with an f/1.8 aperture, and one 12-megapixel telephoto lens camera with an f/2.8 aperture. It measures 158.2×77.9×7.3mm, and weighs in at 188 grams, with the rest of the specifications similar to the iPhone 7.
