According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 7 Plus will be equipped with dual camera that will dramatically improve the picture quality of the new flagship smartphone Apple. The expert forecast is based on data from supply chains, as well as learning technologies that have become available to the company from Cupertino after the purchase of start-up LinX.
Multi-aperture camera LinX allow you to create images of excellent quality, at the level of SLR cameras of Canon and Nikon. They are much smaller, allowing Apple to get rid of the protruding camera in the iPhone 7 Plus. The LinX modules are equipped with a number of interesting technologies, including an analysis of the distance information to objects (3D Depth Mapping).
LinX camera not only half the size of standard mobile counterparts, but offer better color reproduction and low noise in low light conditions. MacDigger offers a list of features innovative solution to the Israeli startup, which will form the basis of the camera iPhone 7 Plus.
Images shot with the camera LinX noticeably brighter and cleaner than traditional smartphone cameras. Magnifying the photo you will notice much more detail in the picture. In this PDF-file can be found with other comparisons.
The picture below was taken at an illumination level of about 40-50 Lux. This lighting can be found in a conventional residential room or the restaurant. It is noticeable that the sensor LinX better cope with the noise and captures more light than the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.
Improved shooting in low light
Camera LinX uses multiple channels to increase the sensitivity of the sensor and tries to minimize the blur effect by using a short exposure. This allows you to achieve the best quality photos in low light.
LinX cameras are able to create spatial images, by analyzing the “depth” of the scene. Receiving information about the distance to objects of shooting, the camera can build a 3D model by merging multiple images from different angles. Such feature is useful for 3D scanning, gesture recognition, size and background.
Advantages of the LinX cameras:
- Enhanced color rendering.
- Support HDR.
- Support UHDR.
- Low level of noise.
- High resolution.
- Low cost.
- The lack of auto-focus modules of up to 20 megapixels.
- Instant shutter response.
- Compact size.
Apple bought a startup LinX, specializing in the development of innovative cameras for mobile devices in April of last year. According to reports reports, the deal amounted to $20 million.
