The few secrets that still surround the future iPhone 7 and 7 More Apple seem very poorly kept at Foxconn those last weeks. After the appearance of the 5.5-inch model (read: The iPhone 7 Plus seen at a Foxconn conference), an employee of the partner of the Cupertino firm has just unveiled the photo sensor of the standard version of 4.7 inches.

Foxconn photo sensor iphone 7 - iPhone 7: the photo sensor shows up at FoxconnIt’s on the Twitter account @the_malignant that a snapshot of the supposed iPhone 7 photo sensor appeared, accompanied by the message (in English): “Mass production has started. Lot of camera modules… Let’s go to work on a full stomach at Foxconn”. Another photo accompanies that of the component. We discover a finished canteen meal, with bowls and plates on which the name of the Foxconn company appears clearly.

Logically, this second photo would therefore prove that the photo sensor comes from a factory of the Taiwanese manufacturer. But it is of course the first that interests us: we can see dozens of modules for the iPhone 7, and on which are registered different identifiers and barcodes. Curiously, no mention “Apple” is present.
