Ming-Chi Kuo, a reputed analyst, has released a research note that suggests the iPhone 7 Plus may work a dual camera system with optical image stabilization and zoom functionality, using technology Apple acquired from LinX about a year ago. The company has been doing groundbreaking research in camera technologies, such as having very thin cameras that could produce high-quality photos; DSLR performance in slim handsets, as the LinX website said before it was taken down.
Some of the LinX's capabilities was noted in a June 2014 press release:
• Replacing one large sensor with two or more smaller ones to reduce the height of the device by a factor of 1.4 to 2
• Increased sensitivity to light by a factor of 3 with a monochrome sensor
• Dramatically lower noise levels
• Effective array camera resolution similar to a single aperture camera in high light
• High image quality and performance in low light
• Fast exposure at standard indoor lighting conditions (100-200 lux) for crisp images without motion blur
• Multi-aperture camera that can create real-time, high quality distance maps
• Automatic background removal
• High-quality autofocus control in video mode when a camera has autofocus
• Augmented reality
• 3D object modelling
• Biometric 3D face recognition
ALL the features are unlikely to be in the iPhone 7, but revolutionary changes to the iPhone 7's camera, and future iPhones, can be expected.
