Next iPhone Camera May Offer DSLR Snapper’s features
By acquiring Israeli camera-technology company LinX, Apple has indeed made a very significant move to improve its iPhone imaging performance with LinX’s outstanding technology.
Apple may like to employ the Israeli startup’s expertise in producing multi-aperture camera models. These models may have the capability to provide features such as 3D image capturing, parallax images, and can enable users achieve blurred backgrounds in portraits and efficient snaps in dim lights.
Most of these features are traits of a standard DSLR camera, thus integration of the technology in next iPhone iteration will take the camera performance of Apple smartphones to the next level.
When sources contacted Cupertino company for confirmation statement about the acquisition, the follow up was Apple’s conventional statement that it utters on occasions of small acquisitions like this one of LinX, which was reportedly finalized for $20M.
“Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans,” stated an Apple Spokesman.
When The Wall Street Journal pursued LinX for comments on the deal, the company didn’t respond.
How Apple will utilize the acquired expertise is still wrapped up with guesses. Keeping in view that LinX is well-known for its production of miniature cameras for tablets and smartphones, it can be anticipated that Apple may use the technology in its notebooks. LinX’s tech can enable Apple to revamp picture quality in devices like the MacBook, without having to compromise on size.
No matter what pattern it follows, Apple seems determined to retain its status of a champion smartphone company which likes to make improvements every now and then.
