With the fall season coming closer, expectation of Apple fans regarding the launch of a new iPhone is increasing steeply. Though several rumors and updates are pouring about the upcoming device every now and then, the reports that the phone might be a bit thicker have attracted the attention of many, reports Network World.
After citing Engadget Japan, The Week recently published a report with a drawing of the upcoming iPhone. According to the reports, the new device is expected to be 7.1 mm thick, which means that it will be slightly thicker than that of the latest models, which records a thickness of 6.9 mm. Though the slight thickness will not make much difference for the users, it is expected that the weight will not be quite heavy compared to the latest models.
Yet, a little rise in the weight is acceptable as the phone is expected to include Force Touch technology. However, there is no official confirmation from the company regarding this from the manufacturers.
Therefore, to know more, Apple fans would have to wait for the launch of the upcoming model. Apart from Force Touch technology, the new device may also have electronic SIM card to offer flexibility of choosing carriers to every user.
