New video of an alleged iPhone 7 case appears to show major changes destined for Apple’s next-gen smartphone.

If it is accurate, the case appears to confirm that Apple will kill the headphone jack and add stereo speakers to the bottom of the device, which should be revealed later this year.

On the rear of the case shown in the video, which was leaked by YouTuber Lewis Hilsenteger this morning, the iPhone camera opening on the back is slightly lower than the iPhone 6 design and also includes a wider camera opening — possibly for a bigger lens. Or maybe two?

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone SE at an event on March 21st at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino. The new 4-inch iPhone is expected to feature an A9 processor, 12MP camera, Touch ID and Apple Pay. A new 9.7-inch iPad Pro with four speaker audio, an A9X processor, 12MP camera, and Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard support is also likely to be unveiled at the event.

The iPhone 7 keynote most likely won’t happen until September, so there’s still a little bit of time for Apple to slip in some changes. Other rumors have claimed the device may feature a dual-lens camera, 256GB of storage, simplified antenna design, and maybe even a Smart Connector.
