Apple iPhone 7 to have DSLR-quality camera: Report

NEW DELHI: It’s been only three months since the launch of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but the next-generation model is already becoming the talk of the town.

According to a recent report, iPhone 7 (or maybe iPhone 6S) bring the biggest camera upgrade in the product line yet and daring Fireball’s John Gruber, who has a good track record when it comes to Apple leaks, has said in a podcast that the next-generation iPhone will have a two-lens system.

Gruber stated: “The specific thing I heard is that next year’s (iPhone) camera might be the biggest camera jump ever.

I don’t even know what sense this makes, but I’ve heard that it’s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery.”

The iPhone camera is widely considered among the best in the Smartphone industry already, but DSLR quality images will take it leaps and bounds ahead of the rivals. While rivals like Sony, Samsung etc use 16-20MP cameras, Apple iPhone 7 are still stuck at 8MP resolution.

With a major upgrade in image quality, the iPhone line may also see an increase in camera resolution.

HTC already uses a two-lens system in its One (M8) Smartphone, which adds 3D effects to the photos it captures.

However, Apple seems to be focusing on enhancing image quality than adding gimmicky effects to photos with its two-lens system.
