Just recently, couple of images leaked which feature two different CNC machining plates, apparently being used in finishing processes of the aluminium bodies of Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. In addition to that, the leaked set of images include design sheets of the plates, with full measurements.
The plates confirm the screen sizes of both smartphones – 4.7-inch for iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch for iPhone 7 Plus. In addition to that, it can be clearly observed from the plates that both handsets will feature iSight camera with larger lens. This means the devices will have larger aperture, thus allowing better image quality in low light conditions. On the other hand, another important feature has been confirmed, the dual camera module of iPhone 7 Plus. Note that the renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities was the first one to claim this feature would be a part of Apple iPhone 7 Plus. He said that Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be offered in different variants. There will be an edition of the 7 that will, allegedly, feature a dual camera system on its back. These lens are to be manufactured by Sony and are expected to be of 12 megapixels each. One of the lens will host a larger aperture than the other and will be accompanied by OIS. The other lens will be equipped by 2-3x optical zoom. Almost a year ago, Apple was given a patent for the exact photographic setup mentioned above. Moreover, Apple also acquired an Israeli imaging company LinX which will allow Apple to produce cameras to produce DSLR quality photographs for its smartphones.
Apart from the rumors mentioned above, we have been hearing reports claiming that LG and Sony will be dividing the task of manufacturing camera modules for the next iPhone between themselves. In addition to that, various sources claim that Optical Image Stabilization will be featured in both the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Note that up till now, OIS has been featured in ‘Plus’ models only.
