In line with previous leaks, a purported dual-lens camera module for the iPhone 7 Plus has appeared online.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus this fall, but rumors about the upcoming devices started soon after the launch of their predecessor in September 2015.
Taiwanese publication Apple.club.tw is the latest to share an image of the dual-lens camera module, which may potentially make its way to the iPhone 7 Plus. One of the lenses shown in the image has a wider diameter than the other. Both the lenses have flex cable at the bottom, which what connects them to the logic board.
Apple improved the camera of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, which customers have applauded. The dual-lens camera will enhance the quality of images taken using the iPhone 7, which may attract more smartphone customers.
This is not the first time that a camera module of the iPhone 7 Plus has leaked online.
Back in January, Chinese publication Chuansong.me also leaked a dual-camera module for the iPhone 7 Plus. While in February, French website NoWhereElse also leaked an alleged photo of the iPhone 7's dual-lens camera module. It is interesting to note that all the leaked images of the dual-lens camera module are similar.
Apple has launched one regular-sized iPhone along with a Plus-sized iPhone for the last two years. However, this may not be the case going forward. Speculations suggest that Apple may introduce the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, but two models of the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus: one with a single camera and the other with a dual-lens camera.
Last January, images of the iPhone 7's internals also floated online. According to the leaked images, the display backlight of the new Apple smartphone seems similar to the iPhone 6s. However, the flex cables and the 3D Touch chip used in the iPhone 7's LCD display are in different locations, which suggests at an updated design for the components.
Leaked image of the iPhone 7 case has also emerged online, which suggests that the iPhone 7 may not have a protruding camera nor antenna lines.
Apple's next flagship will debut in September this year, and more rumors of the device will appear online. For now, iFans will be waiting for March 21 when the company is estimated to launch the 4-inch iPhone 5se - the successor of iPhone 5c - and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
