iPhone 7 Plus to Feature Dual-Lens Camera System?
As noted by usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus may feature a dual-lens camera developed most likely by LinX, a small firm from Israel purchased by Apple last year. The 4.7-inch model, however, won’t get an improved camera system, the analyst believes. I must admit, this is quite a risky step that may impact the sales of the smaller model.
LinX had successfully developed miniature multi-aperture cameras designed for mobile devices. The camera modules are nearly half the height of a standard mobile camera and are capable of creating stunning color images and high accuracy depth maps.
The improved camera of the iPhone 7 Plus may allow Apple to add a 2-3x optical zoom feature to the flagship device and slightly reduce its thickness. Aside from the improved photo sensor, the next-generation iPhone will be equipped with a new processor, more RAM and possibly better battery. Apple also plans to get rid of the traditional headphone jack for the sake of reducing thickness.
Apple hasn’t yet revealed any details about the next-generation iPhone. Stay tuned for more rumors about the upcoming device.
