Buying the iPhone 7 Plus might not be as big an upgrade as some Apple fans were hoping for this fall.

Apple has allegedly decided to scrap plans to include a dual-lens camera sensor on the back of the iPhone 7 Plus, according to the latest rumor from China that claims the tech isn’t quite ready.

Apple will most likely introduce its first ever iPhone with two cameras on the back later this year, but it appears the feature will be exclusively available on the iPhone 7 Plus, and not smaller the iPhone 7.

A set of alleged production plates for the iPhone 7 lineup has leaked out of China along with a schematic that shows the camera opening for the iPhone 7 Plus is wide enough to hold two separate camera sensors.

Take a look:

Fans hoping Apple will bring the new Smart Connector from the iPad Pro lineup over to iPhone 7 may be in for some disappointment this fall.

The iPhone 7 won’t feature a Smart Connector, according to a new report from Asia that claims Apple has shelved the idea for now.
