Video shows how the iPhone 7’s dual-camera system might be a game-changer

While Apple is always researching and improving upon camera technologies – they do have more than 800 people working on it, after all – there’s a lot of evidence to suggest that the iPhone 7 camera will represent a particularly impressive step forward. Specifically, one of the more intriguing rumors surrounding the iPhone 7 is that it may incorporate a dual camera system with optical image stabilization and zoom functionality based on technology it acquired from an Israeli company called LinX many months ago.

With a dual camera system, the iPhone 7 would not only help improve overall image quality, but would also be able to capture more precise detail when zooming in. Speaking to this point, Corephotonics – an Israeli company with their own dual camera technology – recently provided CNET with a video demonstration highlighting the benefits of using their own dual camera system.

Samsung announces new Gear 360 camera, set for launch in mid-2016

During Samsung’s ‘Unpacked’ media event today, the Korean-based electronics giant introduced a new consumer-oriented camera dubbed the Gear 360. As the name somewhat implies, the camera is capable of capturing immersive 360 degree photos and video with ease. Once footage is recorded, it can easily be shared with friends or saved for later viewing.

Specifically, images and video taken with the Gear 360 can be viewed in 2D either via a mobile smartphone app or, naturally, in full 360 with the Samsung Gear VR. During filming, users will be able to preview footage taken on the Gear 360 in real time, provided that they have a compatible Samsung smartphone, a selection which naturally includes the recently unveiled Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

iPhone 7 Plus camera might be more amazing than you think

Reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently issued a research note indicating that the iPhone 7 Plus may incorporate a dual camera system with optical image stabilization and zoom functionality, all based on technology Apple acquired via its $20 million acquisition of LinX about one year ago.

A deeper dive into LinX’s camera technology, however, suggests that camera quality on the iPhone may soon take a monumental step forward. LinX may not be a household name, but the company at the time of Apple’s acquisition was doing some groundbreaking research into camera technologies that might eventually find their way into future iPhone models, perhaps sooner rather than later.
