If we turn red with embarrassment then that's because we know how absurd this is, but it's mobile news and that's what we do. So, the iPhone 6 has just but been released, which in the world of Apple means that there is no bedding down period as we are already looking forward to the next model, the iPhone 7.Yes, that device is not even due to launch until at least September 2015 but already the rumours are kicking into action. Reports over the weekend pointed towards the specs of the iPhone 7 whenever the flagship device arrives. The smartphone will finally get a sapphire screen, which of course is the second hardest naturally occurring material behind diamond. The recently launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were widely rumoured to be receiving sapphire screens, but the timing was wrong as the material is still expensive and Apple's supplier went bust. The report suggests that the iPhone 7 is going to be made from liquid metal, but considering that is not detailed, so we are not sure what that means. Maybe a Terminator 2 style phone perhaps, but nevertheless the handset is reportedly being made to avoid any issues like the Bendgate saga that surrounded the iPhone 6. A new Touch ID sensor could possibly mean that the Home Button could be removed for the first time, which would be a big evolution in the iPhone name. As for other specs, the report hints that the iPhone 7 will retain the A8 processor under the hood, but I think that is highly unlikely and Apple will go for a new chipset. Cupertino will also reportedly made the decision to finally bump the megapixel amount on the read camera from 8 to 14. Business will also be a focus of the new handset, such as a bump to 256GB of internal storage and even a built in projector. On top of that, the newer iPhone 7 Plus will apparently get a screen bump from 5.5-inches to 5.7-inch. All in all we are not necessarily buying these rumours, some of them just seem iPhone 6 plus one, but we are sure the iPhone 7 fun and games will continue through the coming months.
