iPhone 7 leaks appear to be gathering pace, after a dual camera lens module purported to be from Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 7 Plus was revealed by a Taiwanese website.
The camera system, with both wide angle and narrow lenses, matches previous leaks. In January, Apple fanatics found a camera component which looked identical, although there was concern as to the part’s veracity.
However, with a new image of the same part slipping out, it now seems that this is the real deal.
The camera is said to feature technology Apple acquired from imaging firm LinX in 2015. This includes up to 3x optical zoom and much improved low light performance.
The current iPhone’s camera has been put in the shade by a series of devices, including warmly received Samsung’s Galaxy S7.
Rumours continue to swirl that the dual lens system will be exclusive to the larger iPhone 7 Plus, with the 4.7–inch iPhone 7 retaining a single lens camera.
This would mark the first time Apple has given its Plus range better specs and points towards a strategy of fragmenting the iPhone range to appeal to different consumers.
The iPhone 7 Plus is due to be launched in autumn 2016.
