As the month of September inches closer, Apple fans are bound to hear more and more details with regards to Apple’s flagship, unofficially dubbed as the iPhone 7. And when the word comes from none other than KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has the record for providing very credible information, the information becomes that much more crucial.
Predictions about the iPhone 7 arriving with dual-camera lenses have been around for awhile now and Kuo throws further light on the matter. According to report on Mac Rumors, in a new research note from Kuo, he reveals that the dual-camera feature will only be limited to the 5.5-inch variant of the iPhone 7.
“New iPhone shipments to be capped by similar form factor as iPhone 6s & 6s Plus; top hardware upgrade is dual camera (5.5-inch model only), though many competing models with dual camera will launch soon, joining others already on the market; first impressions could underwhelm.”
In earlier reports, Kuo had hinted that the Cupertino tech giant could well be testing devices to support dual-camera lenses, but there was no mention of which model would receive the feature, until now. What’s more? There then comes the possibility that the dual-camera setup may be capable of delivering “DSLR” quality photos and these rumours stem from Apple’s acquisition of LinX Technology.
This could take the iPhone camera capabilities to a whole another level as LinX camera modules offer “3D depth mapping, better colour accuracy and uniformity, ultra HDR, low noise levels, higher resolution” amongst other advantages. Chances are another feature could be included to differentiate the larger variant and word out there suggests that the iPhone 7 Plus could be sporting a Smart Connector, akin to the one seen on the iPad Pro, as noted by Digital Trends.
However, if this does materialise then it remains to be seen how it goes down with the Apple fandom. Many just expect the models to vary in terms of screen size and offer similar features, differentiating the lineup based on the cameras onboard or other specs may probably not be something that may go down well.
