Kuo says that the telephoto lens will be redesigned to add support for the feature.
We believe Apple will add OIS function to the telephoto CCM in order to enhance the selling points of next year’s new iPhone. We think photo quality and optical zoom range may both improve as a result. We expect the telephoto lens will be redesigned to support OIS in the telephoto CCM, with challenges likely coming from: (1) the need to increase the image circle of the telephoto lens, which will lead to longer calibration time and a more complex assembly processes; and (2) a redesign of the telephoto lens, as an increased image circle will result in degraded photo quality around the corners.
It's believed that Apple will release a dual lens 5.5-inch LCD iPhone and a dual lens 5.7-5.8 inch OLED iPhone with a 5.1-5.2 inch active area in 2017. The 4.7-inch LCD iPhone will have just a single lens camera.
Largan Precision is said to remain the exclusive provider of 6P and telephoto lens for next year's new iPhones.
