While the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are still six months away from their official unveiling, French leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer has shared photos one of the first cases prepared for Apple’s next-generation flagship smartphone.
The photos of the clear case were shared by @Onleaks on Twitter. The authenticity of the case cannot be verified, but if its design is anything to go by, the iPhone 7 will feature bottom facing stereo speakers. The second speaker is located at the place where the 3.5mm audio jack is located on the iPhone 6s.
The size of the hole for the rear camera suggests that this particular case maker is buying into the rumor that the iPhone 7 will feature a dual-camera setup on the back. On the other hand, it could be a design choice on part of the case maker as the hole could accommodate standard rear lens along with a LED flash module.

Otherwise, the form factor of the case closely matches that of the iPhone 6s, which makes me doubt its authenticity. While Apple may have already finalised the design of the iPhone 7 in its labs, it is unlikely that it will share them so soon with case makers and its assembly partners.
Multiple rumors have also claimed the iPhone 7 will feature a waterproof design, ditch the 3.5mm audio jack in favor of a slimmer design, a sleeker lightning port, and a dual-camera setup at the rear. Recent rumors also claim that the handset will feature the same dimensions as the iPhone 6s and will be around 1mm thinner.
