You Could Use iPhone 7 Plus’ Both 12MP Sensors for Zoom At Once
The launch event might still be a few days away but perhaps the most talked about thing whenever Apple’s upcoming smartphones are discussed is the rumored iPhone 7 Plus dual camera. KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a pretty decent record of Apple leaks has published a new report highlighting some of the features of iPhone 7 plus.
According to the report, the iPhone 7 Plus dual camera will work in such a way that the two 12-megapixel sensors will both be used for zoom and light-field camera applications simultaneously. This makes it sound somewhat similar to what Huawei is using in their dual cameras in Huawei P9, although without the zoom.
Through the use of these dual cameras, iPhone 7 Plus users will be able to tweak focal points and simulate different apertures for the pictures they take with their smartphone.
Apple is also expected to include high quality lenses and extra LED flashes with the dual cameras to produce more natural color low light photos.
In his report, Ming-Chi also talks about the dreaded removal of 3.5mm jack from the new smartphone. If what he says in the report turns out to be true, owners will not have to worry about buying new headsets for their device.
It seems like Apple will be bundling a headphone adapter which will be found in every iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus box. Since the new audio port is expected to be Lightning based, the adapter will be a Lightning to 3.5mm so the old 3.5mm headphones, irrespective of their brand, should work.
The report also mentions that the new A10 chips powering Apple’s next generation smartphones will run at 2.4GHz clock speed which is a significant boost over the 1.85GHz of A9 chips used in iPhone 6s and SE. Some recently leaked benchmarks also seem to support this.
Apple’s launch event for its new devices, including the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is scheduled for 7th September.
