The iPhone 7 Plus has long been rumored to include a dual-lens camera. The larger 5.5-inch variant will see a substantial upgrade while the smaller 4.7-inch variant will be an inferior model, so to speak. However, one thing that remains to be a mystery is storage options for the new iPhones, until now (via Steven Hemmerstoffer).

The leak shows that Apple will be upping its highest tier iPhone model (currently 128GB for both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus), to 256GB. Unfortunately, the leaked image does show that Apple will be keeping the 16GB storage option around. As Apple’s new storage model may be 16/64/256 according to the leak.

This makes sense, as the new iPad Pros come in 32/128/256 storage options, however 16GB is still unacceptable in this day and age. Especially with the latest generation iPhones being capable of shooting 4K video. As many will agree, the ideal storage configuration for the iPhone, (with Live Photos and 4K video) would be 64/128/256.

In terms of the dual camera, it is highly likely that at least on the Plus model we’ll see some sort of storage jump as the extra camera means the iPhone will need additional storage to hold all of the images.

Gathering all the previous rumors and such, it seems like Apple will truly be pushing to differentiate its 4.7 and 5.5-inch variants. What are your thoughts?
