Based on the latest series of leaked images on the Internet, the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus (Apple’s other bigger iPhone 7 device to be released later this year) appears to come with a pair of cameras on the rear side. Blog site Pocketnow took the opportunity to display a series of photos leaked on various Taiwan based websites. These images seem to show six different modules purportedly intended to be used for the device’s dual camera system.
It is no secret that Apple needs to rebound from a rather dry spell brought on by iPhone fatigue and slumping sales. A few days from now, everybody is expecting the company to unveil a smaller, cheaper iPhone (unofficially called the iPhone SE), and while that may help, the only way for Apple to truly recover is to deliver on its next generation flagship devices.
This is why it is very critical that the upcoming iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus become huge hits for the company. And one way of getting people to buy the new iPhone models is to bring something new. This is where the dual camera system comes in. Such a feature would allow iOS users to capture images using both rear side lenses, and then combine the results to generate photos with significantly better quality. A dual camera system would consist of, say, a 12 megapixel lens for wide angle shots, while the second one would be a 12 megapixel camera with optical zoom.
Back in April of last year, Apple had completed its acquisition of LinX, an Israel based firm that specializes in producing multi aperture camera modules. Apple is said to be taking full advantage of the LinX’s expertise and manufacturing prowess in developing the dual camera system for the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus device.
For months, rumors have been circulating regarding possible features for the next generation iPhone handsets. Back in January early this year, noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities had predicted that the iPhone 7 Plus would be equipped with both single lens and dual lens editions. A couple of months later in March, there was talk that iPhone 7 will possess stereo speakers and a flush rear side camera, but, alas, no standard audio jack. But considering how secretive Apple is, nobody really knows if all of this will turn out to be true. In the meantime, all we got are rumors and leaks.
