Apple may employ dual camera setup with optical zoom for iPhone 7 Plus

While we have been hearing rumours about the upcoming iPhone 7, we just got a tip about the iPhone 7 Plus already.


According to noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 7 Plus may have a special camera-centric variant. Interestingly, this variant is said to flaunt a dual rear camera setup. The handset is said to employ two 12 MP camera sensors made by Sony, with one lens having a wider aperture than the other. This is said to offer better picture quality even in low light conditions.

Surprisingly, the report also claims that one of the lens would have OIS, just like on the current versions. But the other module is said to have a 2-3x optical zoom. Now while this may sound unrealistic, Apple already has a patent for such a technology. So it seems like the company has some real good plans for the iPhone 7 Plus.
