Apple is planning to bump up the iPhone 8 series camera hardware to enrich the photography experience, says the new report.
One of the most loved feature of the Apple's 2016 series iPhone 7 Plus was the camera. It housed boasts dual cameras, one a 12MP camera featuring OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser), ƒ/1.8 aperture, 6-element lens, Quad-LED True Tone flash and a tele-photo lens-base snapper to capture depth of field information to bring out Bokeh effect.
Now, the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his accuracy in predictions on un-released Apple products, in his latest note to his investor client, has claimed that Apple will take the iPhone 8 series camera by a notch up over the iPhone 7 series.
As per Kuo (courtesy, Mac Rumors), Apple is expected to incorporate OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) feature to the telephoto CCM (Compact Camera Module) in the two of three iPhone 8 series models to improve the photo quality and optical zoom range.
It is believed that iPhone 8 models -- 5.1-inch (or 5.2-inch) OLED screen and 5.5-inch LCD screen will have dual-lens camera, while the smaller 4.7-inch LCD display will have single-lens camera with OIS feature.
It is also believed that Apple will integrate AR (Augmented Reality) features in to the dual-camera in the iPhone 8 series and release an SDK for developers soon after the unveiling, to create AR-compatible apps for the device.
This report comes close on the heels of the speculation on Apple testing smart glass with AR-capability.
Other expected features of Apple iPhone 8:
Besides the camera, Apple is working to come with fully revamped design language along with powerful Apple 11 Fusion processor with sumptuous RAM and battery capacity in the iPhone 8 series.
Rumour has it that iPhone 8 series will have bezel-less display, and lose the physical home button, which used to house the fingerprint sensor on the front display panel in current and older models.
The new iPhone 8 series is also expected to come with 3D touch sensor integrated right into the screen and also boast Always On Display (AOD), like we see in the flagship Moto series and the recently-released Samsung Galaxy S7 series.
