November 11, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

The iPhone 7 will likely be released in the middle of September 2015, according to a report.

The report also says that the next iPhone may have a 2K display with 2560 x 1440p rendering, an improvement over the iPhone 6 Plus rendering of 1920 x 1080p.

And it says that the iPhone 7 will have an improved battery life, although it doesn’t specify the improvement.

Another improvement it says will come is a rear camera of at least 13 MP, after the iPhone 6 came with an 8 MP back camera.

The blog iPhone 7 Update also says that rumors indicate that the iPhone 7 will sport a 5.7 inch screen.

“Since the border areas of the phone will be slimmer, the phone’s usability will skyrocket,” it said.

In terms of display, the blog says that the iPhone 7 may come with gesture control.

“The feature allows users to control the display without touching the handset,” it says.

There are conflicting rumors about the next iPhone coming with a Sapphire display, or not, and the blog notes that it could also come with IGZO display, or a semiconductor material called indium gallium zinc oxide.

A previous post from the blog said that users can expect a quad core A8 processor or better in the iPhone 7, as well as models with up to 256 GB.

It also said that the iPhone 7 is expected to start a price range of $649 to $849, though it didn’t specify whether those prices would be with or without a contract.
