Following various reports about possible iPhone 7 features, the first image leak has finally hit the Web thanks to Taiwanese site apple.club.tw. The images posted on the website – and spotted by MacRumors – show the alleged backlight assembly of the iPhone 7.

While the component looks similar to that of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, there is one thing that differentiates them: The 3D Touch chip and LCD flex cables are relocated on the purported iPhone 7 backlight assembly.

The source also speculates that the component could be part of the rumoured iPhone 6c, but if we are to believe the reports we’ve heard before, the next-generation, lower-cost iPhone won’t feature 3D Touch.

The Taiwanese website has been the source of reliable leaks of Apple products in the past – think iPhone 6 protruding camera lens, iPhone 6 logic board, and others – so the possibility of a valid component leak is high.

The iPhone 7 is rumoured to incorporate usb-c port, wireless charging; 3 GB of RAM; a larger, 3,100 mAh battery; bigger, 256 GB storage; and an all-in-one Lightning connector.

    A backlight means no OLED display… After seeing the gorgeous screen of my friend’s Nexus 6P, I really wish Apple would switch to OLED too. Their IPS screen is getting old.
