Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities, estimates that Apple will include a dual-lens camera setup in the next iPhones and they will support dual optical image stabilization. According to Kuo, Apple is also expected to redesign the telephoto lens, which will improve the optical image zoom capabilities and photo quality.
“We expect the telephoto lens will be redesigned to support OIS in the telephoto CCM, with challenges likely coming from: (1) the need to increase the image circle of the telephoto lens, which will lead to longer calibration time and a more complex assembly processes; and (2) a redesign of the telephoto lens, as an increased image circle will result in degraded photo quality around the corners,” says Kuo.
The analyst hints that the technology giant may introduce iPhones in 2017: a 5.1-inch or 5.2-inch OLED screen model, a 5.5-inch variant with LCD display and a 4.7-inch version with LCD display.
