iPhone 7 Plus Dual Camera

A recent posting made on China’s microblogging site Weibo contradicts earlier rumors that the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus will come with a dual camera. According to Foxconn’s internal staff, Apple has  decided to ditch the dual camera feature of iPhone 7 Plus due to technical difficulties faced.

Earlier rumors and leaks showed that the 5.5 inch iPhone 7 model will carry a dual-camera setup with the extra sensor being used probably for optical zooming and KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo stated earlier that this feature will be exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus model. But the latest news arriving from a Foxconn insider indicates that this is no longer an option due to some technical difficulties faced by the company.

Weibo Dual Camera iPhone 7 Plus

Given that there have been many schematics and renderings in the past showing the dual camera iPhone 7 Plus, Foxconn is one of the primary manufacturing partner of Apple and today’s leak from a Foxconn source cannot be taken with a grain of salt.

Many Apple customers will be left dissappointed if the Cupertino tech-giant drops plans for a dual camera setup as it is one of the major upgrades of the iPhone 7 Plus over its predecessors. If this news is to be taken true, the next generation of iPhone might not offer major new features to attract buyers.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to be launched this year in September. Given that we are still months away from the announcement, there’s still time for more information to surface.
