Apple is reportedly planning to adopt a dual-lens camera for its next-generation iPhone Plus. Since Largan currently supplies over 60% of Apple's smartphone cameras, some market watchers believe Apple is likely to seek dual-lens camera products from other makers to lower risks.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the dual-lens system being testing for the iPhone is based on technology from LinX, an Israeli company acquired by Apple last year.
Apple could use the LinX Imaging algorithm to bring a 2-3x optical zoom function to the iPhone 7 Plus while sidestepping the traditional bottlenecks associated with compact camera module (CCM) assembly.
Apple has been working on a dual-lens camera for quite some time. Multiple rumors hinted at the feature since 2014.
The iPhone 7 Plus isn't expected until later this year. You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates on its development.
