“Apple is adding some really cool features to the iPhone 7 that will support demand, including dual-lens camera for all iPhone 7 plus models,” Alpha Max writes for Seeking Alpha. “In addition, third-party VR (virtual reality) support for the device will also boost demand from outside.”
“According to a new report, Apple will release three iPhone 7 models, which are iPhone 7, iPhone 7 plus and iPhone 7 plus premium,” Alpha Max writes. “The iPhone 7 plus premium model, also called iPhone 7 pro, will feature a dual-lens camera. Last year Apple acquired LinX Imaging, an Israeli camera company, which is developing new camera technologies for iOS devices. Apple will certainly incorporate the technologies, at least a few of them, to the latest iPhone.”
“I believe the advanced camera of iPhone 7 will be a groundbreaking feature. The camera’s depth mapping feature will not only help photographers take aesthetic photos, it will also allow tech-savvy users to create VR content, aside from watching VR content via an HMD (head-mounted display),” Alpha Max writes. “By enabling users to create their own VR content, Apple will redefine photography and videography for the general people without any technical background. This will boost new demand for iPhone 7, in addition to replacement demand.”
