The iPhone 7 Plus is likely to have two cameras on its back, but otherwise come in a similar box to the existing 6s, according to a leading analyst.
Apple is set to release a new phone featuring dual-camera technology that will allow the phones to take pictures with the quality of a full DSLR camera, according to usually reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
But that feature could be limited to the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, according to the same report. The new camera is likely to be one of the headline features of the new iPhone 7, which is rumoured to otherwise come in a body largely similar to the existing iPhone 6 and 6s. Apple is expected to introduce the new phone in September — and it may be followed soon after by a complete redesign, according to the same analyst.
If the report is correct, it would be far from the first time that Apple has restricted better camera technology to its larger phone. Both the iPhone 6 and 6s have almost identical camera features to their larger siblings, but lack particular technologies that are thought to rely on the bigger iPhone’s extra space.
