The quality of cameras on mobile devices have taken a huge leap of improvement over the last decade or so. Indeed, smartphone cameras nowadays are so good that various filmmakers have already tried (and succeeded) in shooting movies using their own iPhone devices. And now thanks to a new technology from Sony, capturing video footage via one’s handsets will continue to get even better.
Smartphones with dual camera configurations are making waves in this year’s Consumer Electronic Show currently being held in the Entertainment Capital of the World. There was Huawei’s Honor 6X and Asus’ ZenFone 3 Zoom, which both made their debuts in CES 2017.
With the roll out of iOS 10.1, Apple has brought the Portrait mode to owners of the iPhone 7 Plus.

Recently this week, a fresh beta version of iOS 10, the newest iteration of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, was rolled out to developers, and it comes with a Portraits feature, which is designed to help users capture better portrait shots, according to a report published by MacRumors.
