Set to be unveiled later this week, Apple’s iPhone 7 has unfairly been categorized as a middle-of-the-road upgrade. Sure, the iPhone 7 may not introduce a radical new design or form factor, but there are still no shortage of reasons to get excited about Apple’s next-gen smartphone. In particular, the dual camera system that will grace Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone 7 will likely represent a monumental leap forward in smartphone camera quality.
Based on any number of credible reports, the dual camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus will largely be based on technology Apple picked up when it acquired a company called LinX back in early 2015. Originally based out of Israel, LinX’s advanced camera technology was capable of delivering superior camera performance across a number of different shooting environments, including low light situations. What’s more, LinX’s technology was said to capture “gorgeous photos in the most challenging environments (flares, mist, reflections, very close objects, etc).” Further, LinX’s slim camera models also served up marked improvements in color accuracy, noise levels, shutter lag, color uniformity and much more.
