iPhone 7 Plus May Come with Two Rear Cameras

Apple will undoubtedly treat us to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the next part in its smartphone history. Gossipy tidbits about these gadgets started floating around even before the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were launched, which is typically the case with anything identified with Apple. An analyst now anticipates that the iPhone 7 Plus can support a dual-camera system.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple will add two rear cameras of the big sized iPhone 7 Plus to provide higher quality pictures and allow optical zoom.

It’s yet unknown how it would work. The report claims that the two cameras would take independent photos from both camera holes. One camera could probably support optical image stabilization and a wide view field. Another one would come with a telephoto lens with a narrower field of view.

Using ‘Linx Imaging’ algorithms, two photos taken with two different cameras could be combined, and turned into a final image for users to see.

According to KGI, about 30% of the iPhone 7 shipments would be equipped with the dual-camera system. This would be a marked change for the company’s iPhone range, where the 4.7 inch and 5.5-inch models have been for all intents and purposes equivalent beside the screen size difference and video optical picture adjustment. It seems like Apple will differentiate the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, by making the “Plus” a more premium version.

The report also clears that the 4.7 inch iPhone 7 will not have the dual-camera technology, rather reserve it for the 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus champ.
