Dual cameras will be exclusive to Apple’s next-generation 5.5-inch iPhone, according to a new research note issued by respected KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
New iPhone shipments to be capped by similar form factor as iPhone 6s & 6s Plus; top hardware upgrade is dual-camera (5.5-inch model only), though many competing models with dual-camera will launch soon, joining others already on the market; first impressions could underwhelm.
Reports have been mixed about whether the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, or both smartphones will feature dual cameras, but Kuo’s latest comments reiterate that the system will be a larger-screen exclusive. The informed analyst previously said that Apple has two different 5.5-inch iPhones in development, including both a dual camera model and another with a traditional single-lens module.
With around five months left until Apple is expected to announce its next-generation flagship iPhones, leaks surrounding the rumored dual cameras have been limited to a blurry photo of the purported iPhone 7 Plus and a possible dual-lens module appropriate for the 5.5-inch smartphone.
