Apple fans (or anyone else about to go shopping for a new smartphone) - behold the latest iPhone ahead of the tech company's secretive launch in less than a week's time.

New leaked pictures of the iPhone 7 claim to show Apple's newest handset for the first time, and reveal the phone will have two rear cameras.

The device will be the next model following on from the 6s and 6s Plus which launched last autumn. It's expected to be similar to those, with the two size versions but thinner, and no headphone jack (they would connect through the lightning port, in theory), rumours suggest, in addition to the dual camera.

The latest images, first posted by Chinese website Bastille Post and picked up by MacRumours, also show the cameras are less protruding than on previous models. More pictures from Feld and Volk, a Russian iPhone modification company, apparently confirm the new feature.

We already started preparing for iPhone 7, @macrumorsofficial made a big editorial about our vision of the new generation of iPhone.

And here's how that compares to the iPhone 6s.

The two cameras will add to Apple's photo capabilities, it's speculated, appealing to selfie-lovers and the image obsessed (that'll be most of us). The performance of iPhone cameras formed the basis of advertising campaigns for the brand, with amateur iPhone users' pictures appearing plastered across billboards to show off how good they can be.

Apple is next week expected to launch the iPhone 5se, an update to the lower cost iPhone 5c which launched in 2013. Anyone eyeing up the higher end iPhone 7 will have to wait a little longer - the flagship iPhone models are usually revealed at an Autumn launch event.
