Apple’s still hard at work on the iPhone 7, but a new report claims to reveal the latest on the upcoming smartphone.

The report comes from several “informed sources” speaking to DigiTimes¬†who claim the iPhone 7 just finished its third round of testing. The device apparently offers a water and dust-resistant design, which lines up with earlier rumors. It could also feature a pressure sensitive 3D Touch Home Button, which may be flush with the rest of the device as a result.

Overall, the iPhone 7 isn’t expected to be a huge upgrade over the iPhone 6s, but it could include a few other perks. Apple is allegedly planning to reposition the antenna bands for a sleeker look and ditch its traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s also expected to add a second rear camera, though that may be limited to the iPhone 7 Plus or even a third “Pro” variant.”

Whether that’s enough to make the iPhone 7 a hit remains to be seen. Analysts are already predicting a rough year for Apple’s mobile business, but it’s possible the company could still find a way to surprise us.
