Rumour has it that atleast of one variation of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 is going to come fitted with a dual rear camera module, much like those we’ve seen already from the LG and HTC flagship devices.
Few days ago, Taiwanese site apple.club.tw (in Taiwanese), exposes photos of what is claimed to be the iPhone 7 Pro Dual Camera module destined for the next Apple flagship. These images match those which had actually been formerly released in January on chuansong.me (Chinese), albeit with certain serial numbers and barcodes redacted.
Both sets of images show 2 discrete camera modules, fitted with individual ribbon connectors, however housed in a single unit. This strongly recommends a system much like that found in the LG G5, where lenses with different field of visions can be used to pick either telephoto or large angle modes, while smart processing can then be utilized to produce the impression of a smooth optical zoom center.
It’s by no means specific that these components are predestined for an iPhone 7 Pro Dual Camera design, or undoubtedly any Apple phone, however according to Steve Hemmerstoffer, Editor of French site NowhereElse.fr, there are serial numbers visualized which provide tell-tale indications that the leaked dual-camera module has actually been made by one of Apple’s regular components providers, making its inclusion in a future iPhone 7 Pro appear even more likely.
iPhone 7 Pro Dual Camera – Apple Taking Crown in Dual Camera Phones?
The iPhone camera, previously, steered clear of handling its rivals with technical requirements. Withstanding relocate to high-megapixel sensors till definitely essential, Apple has actually rather concentrated on idiot-proof ease of use, reputable outcomes through peerless software processing and some extremely effective marketing.
The iPhone camera has actually historically delivered much more than its specs on paper would recommend possible, however competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 have left it entirely outgunned in the hardware department.
An iPhone 7 Pro Dual Camera system from Apple would change all that, propelling the iPhone 7 Pro right to the bleeding edge of mobile phone camera technology, while maintaining all Apple’s existing processing abilities.
It is still to be seen which, if any, version of the iPhone 7 may get the new dual camera, with present rumours recommending it’s destined only for a brand-new flagship iPhone 7 Pro design.
Whatever the outcome, it’s going to be an interesting time for smartphone professional photographers in coming September.
