Big camera and all.

There’s been a steady stream of purported iPhone 7 image leaks lately, but now we have a video.

A video published in China shows a person holding two devices that the creators say is the iPhone 7. While it’s unknown if they’re real, they appear to follow earlier rumors surrounding Apple’s next iPhone and feature a bigger camera lens and revised antenna lines, which would help the device better connect to cellular networks. As the person holding the devices shows the bottom, two speaker grills are seen, suggesting earlier reports that Apple is eliminating the headphone jack in favor of stereo speakers might be true.

Apple-tracking site 9to5Mac earlier reported on the video.

As with anything Apple-related, the video’s legitimacy should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt. Apple is notoriously secretive and has not announced plans for a new iPhone yet. It’s also unknown if the devices the person is holding are real, fake mockups, or prototypes Apple had tested at some point in the past.

However, several images have leaked over the last several days purporting to show Apple’s next iPhone. Those images have all pictured devices that look strikingly similar to the ones featured in the latest video, down to the antenna design changes and the dual speaker grills. While it’s hard to tell if the devices are really Apple’s next iPhone, the video shouldn’t be dismissed as a definite fake.

Indeed, it’s become increasingly difficult for Apple AAPL to stop product leaks. Over the last several years, its devices, like the iPhone SE, as well as their names, have leaked prior to the company’s announcement. In many cases, the leaks come from Apple’s massive supply chain and can sometimes come directly from people in China assembling the products. While Apple might be secretive, in other words, it can’t easily keep a lid on its suppliers. And evidence is mounting that perhaps these leaks really are the real deal.

But if the leaks are real Apple devices—or something similar to what the company launches—they also suggest that this year’s iPhone won’t be a major design upgrade. Instead, they’ll come with only minor upgrades, following earlier rumors saying Apple was planning a big update for 2017 that would come with an all-glass enclosure and new display technology.

For its part, Apple remains silent on the matter and likely won’t say much about the iPhone until later this year, when it’s expected to unveil a new handset. If history is our guide, the smartphone would launch sometime around the launch of iOS 10, which is hitting Apple devices this fall.
