Externally, the Apple iPhone 7 is very similar to its predecessor. Other than a smoother look and a change in antenna band placement, not much has changed. However internally this phone is full of aggressive breaks from convention. Everything inside the new iPhone’s casing is a statement about the future of this phone. The home button is no longer a physical button, but rather full of pressure sensors and haptic vibration motors that simulate the feel of a button. The new A10 Fusion processor blends two high power cores that rival laptop performance along with two low power cores that combine with a much larger capacity battery to extend lifetime by up to two hours. This generation of iPhone has also seen the headphone jack removed, and in its place, new stereo speakers.
iPhone 7 Model A1660 is the global variant having both CDMA and GSM support. The markets where this model is available include United States, Puerto Rico, Hong Kong and China. The SIM-free version will also have this model number, while in the U.S., Verizon and Sprint offer the iPhone 7 with A1660 model. This phone supports 19 FDD-LTE bands, 4 TD-LTE bands, 2 SCDMA bands, 4 CDMA bands, 4 GSM bands, and 5 UMTS bands.
