We’ve heard a theory about the iPhone 6S sporting dual cameras, but that didn’t pan out as expected. Now, the same rumor is going around about the iPhone 7 and today there’s a bit of leak concerning the iPhone 7 Plus.
The handset is said to have a dual camera version, according to people close to Apple suppliers and partners. The codename “iPhone7 plus Dual” just came up, which can either mean it’s a dual SIM device, something that Apple would never concede to, or a dual camera unit. Sony is said to supply the sensors, with a 12 megapixel main sensor and an extra one with telephoto lens support.
Improved optical image stabilization and a broader framing are promised too. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently predicted a dual camera version, too and said that it would account for up to 35% of all iPhone 7 Plus shipments. While HTC One M8 and Huawei Honor 6 were the last mainstream phones with such cameras, they weren’t exactly huge hits. Will Apple be able to achieve that?
