iPhone 7 Plus hands-on: Apple’s most advanced smartphone is here

Apple has always viewed its larger iPhone as the more premium model, and that’s no different with the iPhone 7 Plus. Announced on Wednesday, the device is the most advanced phone Apple has ever made, equipped with new internals, IP67 water and dust resistance, and a home button that no longer clicks.

It also sports a dual-lens camera, something Apple claims is comparable to a low-end DSLR. Too bad the feature Apple spent a lot of time talking about won’t be available until later this year as a software update. Go figure.

The iPhone 7 Plus’ comes equipped with two 12-megapixel cameras, one wide-angle and one that’s telephoto, giving users 10x zoom capabilities for portrait photography. Apple showed examples of what this dual system can do, and they looked good. Of course, we’ll have more definitive thoughts when we get our hands-on the device once it launches next week.

Outside of the camera, the larger model isn’t too different compared to the iPhone 7; it has an A10 Fusion chip, stereo speakers, an improved Retina HD display, and a more refined design. You can read more about the device in our announcement post from earlier.
