#Smartphone #iPhone7Plus – iPhone 7 Plus Will Have Dual-Lens Camera Module By Primax : According to the latest reports, Taiwanese company Primax Electronics will be responsible for making some of the dual-lens camera systems that will be used in Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 Plus smartphone.
Excitement is building around the iPhone 7 Plus as we approach the predicted launch date of early September. One of the most persistent rumors surrounding the flagship smartphone is the possible introduction of a dual-lens camera system.
Primax Electronics touted as Apple camera module supplier
Other smartphone makers such as LG have already introduced dual-lens camera modules to high-end models, and Apple may be the next company to do so. It is thought that the iPhone 7 Plus will see Apple’s first dual-lens smartphone camera, and a new report claims that at least some of the modules will be manufactured by Primax.
The Taiwanese firm recently boosted its camera module capacity by 10%, according to Economic Daily News. As a result the company could now make around 12 million camera modules per month.
It is thought that around 70% of Primax’ output is taken up with 13-megapixel modules. While this could provide a clue as to the resolution of the modules we may see on the iPhone 7 Plus, it is important to remember that Primax has other clients that also buy its camera modules.
iPhone 7 Plus to sport dual-lens camera
Primax is expected to break its record revenue for August as a result of the deal. The company’s total revenue grew 12.3% month and 19.5% on year in July. It is expected to keep rising for August. The company also believes it will be asked to manufacture more dual-camera modules after the release of the iPhone 7 Plus.
While a number of leaks and rumors have proposed the idea of a dual-lens camera on the iPhone 7 Plus, it is not clear what the second lens would do exactly. The most obvious application would be as an optical zoom, although it could also boost image fidelity or shoot stereoscopic 3D.
