LG will reportedly be the exclusive supplier of the dual lens camera for the new iPhone 7 Plus, reports Business Korea.

On June 8 an industry source told the site, “LG Innotek will exclusively supply dual camera module to Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, which will come out in September this year."

The company is said to begin shipments of the module as early as this month. Other vendors may join the supply chain next year. Sony is the sole supplier of image sensors used by LG to produce camera modules for the iPhone.

Last month a report from Nomura's Chris Chang said that LG Innotek would supply a majority of dual lens cameras as Sony has reportedly fallen behind schedule.

Apple's expected to unveil the iPhone 7 later this fall. In the meanwhile, check out this rendering of what the device is expected to look like.

I'd say in the next ten years, the iPhones we currently have will eventually have a limit on whatever iOS versions it can handle and stop updating which means we don't have to worry about losing the jailbreak which all here as mentioned applied to iPad one, iPhones 2g-4, and any iPod touch probably before the 4th, so nu-uh no excuse either way. Did I forget to mention android can run on iPhone?

Why would we need he dual lens camera anyway? What are the benefits of that? Why only for the larger of the two phones?
