iPhone 7 reportedly heading for substantial camera improvement

That’s right, the iPhone 7 rumour mill has already started to churn, with latest reports claiming the handset will feature a sizeable camera improvement.

While the iPhone 6 features an impressive 8-megapixel iSight snapper, the handset’s imaging abilities were little improved when compared with those of last year’s iPhone 5S.

Not wanting to fall behind the impressive cameras bestowed on the likes of the Sony Xperia Z3 and Samsung Galaxy S5, it has now been suggested the iPhone 7 could jump to DSLR-esque imaging abilities.

So, pinch of salt at the ready, here we go… According to oft correct tech tipster John Gruber, unnamed insiders have revealed Apple is plotting a major camera refresh for its next-generation handset.

Claiming the information came from ‘a birdie of a birdie”, Gruber has suggested the upcoming Apple handset will feature the most substantial camera upgrade the iPhone range has ever seen.

Delving a little deeper, he added: “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.

This all sounds a little far-fetched to us. The HTC One M8 introduced a dual-lens camera to the mainstream market this year to little more than some novelty points.

Although the next Apple phone – be it the iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 – is sure to benefit from an improved camera, we would suggest you don’t hold your breath on DSLR quality smartphone shots being introduced anytime soon.

The iPhone 7 leaks are the latest reports to suggest 2015 will be the year the smartphone camera steps up to the next level.

Earlier this week Sony announced its new IMX230 smartphone sensor. The 21-megapixel sensor features a hugely impressive 192 auto-focus points.
