Apple is set to start testing the new dual lens camera system that's destined for its new iPhone 7 Plus, according to supply-chain sources in Taiwan.
This latest missive from the frontline of Apple’s iPhone development programme backs up a previous rumour circulated by analysts, who revealed that Apple was working on a dual lens camera system aimed at offering 'DSLR–quality' images.
The sources say that Taiwanese imaging firm Largan Technology has sent Apple samples of its dual lenses. Other companies based in China and Japan are said to have done the same.
Largan is one of Apple’s key suppliers and already delivers 60% of all lenses for the current range of iPhones.
There’s no word as to whether such a lens would make it into the smaller iPhone 7 or if, as suspected, it'll be reserved for the larger Plus model.
Recent rumours have suggested that whatever lens Apple uses, it will sit flush to the rear of the device unlike that found in the iPhone 6s.
