iPhone 7 Plus may pack two rear-facing cameras

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that we'll see two versions of the iPhone 7 Plus, one with a standard camera and another with a dual-camera setup.

The next iPhone is still a few months away, but that hasn’t stopped frequently accurate analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from predicting that the iPhone 7 Plus will feature a dual-camera system.

These two cameras, according to Kuo, could be used together to produce a single high-quality image or for 3D image capture, and will enable optimal zoom, which would allow the handset to narrow its field of view without losing image quality.

Interestingly, Kuo says that two versions of the iPhone 7 Plus are in development, one that will feature the dual-camera system and another that has a single camera on its back. He says that Apple will offer both configurations, though warns that there will be "supply chain constraints" on the dual-camera modules.

This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard talk of an iPhone with a dual-camera setup. Back in 2014, pundit John Gruber said that he’d heard of work on a dual-camera system for a future iPhone. Time will tell if this is the year that we finally see a dual-camera system on an iPhone.
