BEACON TRANSCRIPT – It would seem that the Cupertino tech giant is moving forward with its plan to dazzle the consumer with a whole new type of phone. According to the latest rumors, the iPhone 7 plus will be outfitted with two cameras, rear cameras to be more precise.
Over the last few months, we have been literally assaulted by various rumors regarding Apple’s newest gadget. iPhone 7, also dubbed as Apple’s newest flagship is rumored to pack lots of new features. According to some of these rumors, the tech giant wants to drop the 3.5-mm phone jack and go along with a wireless solution. Apparently, this move is made to ensure that the new phone will be waterproof.
Moreover, by dropping the audio jack, the phone maker can make the handset slimmer and pack more features into it.
On the same line of rumors regarding the soon-to-be-released iPhone 7 Plus, here is something totally new. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst working for KGI, the 7 plus model will be outfitted with two rear cameras.
Moreover, it would seem that the rumor was prompted by Apple’s move of purchasing LinX, back in 2015. For those who are unaware, LinX is an Israel-based high-tech company, which mainly produces devices capable of taking high-quality pictures, using low-end and multi-purpose lens.
The analyst’s statement isn’t entirely surprising. It would seem that Apple was looking forward to a long time to introduce the dual-camera technology, but the application wasn’t feasible until recently. Furthermore, if we are to go along with all the rumors circulating on the internet on Apple’s latest move, not all 7 handsets will receive the dual-camera mode.
Apple declared that the 7 line will feature two types of handset: a mundane one, which is outfitted with a 4.7-inch screen and a 5.5-inch model which packs an image stabilizer and, probably the dual-camera mode.
As to what the new feature can do for you, it seems like we are walking on quicksand. Some believe that the phone uses one camera to take the picture while using the other in order to enhance the quality of the picture.
On the other hand, other tend to believe that one of the camera will be used for image stabilization, supplying a wider field of view, and the other one as a telephoto lens, packed with a narrower field of view. And last, but not least, according to some of the rumors out there the second camera isn’t exactly a camera, but an objective which can supply an optical zoom of 3x.
