iPhone 7: A newly leaked image of Apple iPhone 7 claims a redesigned rear camera and hints that the smaller 4.7-inch version of the smartphone will sport optical image stabilization. It also has other camera improvements in store.
The latest image of the camera module comes from French blog No where Else. And it sort of confirms the existence of image stabilization in the upcoming iPhone 7. As you can see in the image above, there’s an L-shaped flex cable which looks very different from the one that is found in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s or even the Plus variants. This isn’t the first time iPhone will feature image stabilization. The feature has been found limited to the Plus version of iPhone. What it does is reduces motion blur and helps capture clearer images especially during action scenes and low lighting.
Previously we reported that the iPhone 7 would come in two models, one with 4.7-inch and another with 5.5-inch. While one model will have a single-lens camera while the other models will feature a dual-lens camera. Previously the famous tipster Evan Bass on Twitter confirmed that Apple is bringing out only two iPhone 7 models (and not three). He informed that the two iPhone 7 variants are code-named Sonora and Dos Palos. Tweeting on July 18 he informed there are going to be only two iPhone models this year, saying: “The 2 (two!) 2016 iPhone models are codenamed Sonora and Dos Palos”, Blass wrote.
There are doubts whether the upcoming iPhone will the new phone be called the “iPhone 7.” We had also reported that the iPhone 7 might come without the traditional 3.5 mm jack port and is working on the launch of wireless earbuds. Rumors are that the device may come with 3D Touch Home Button, and will probably have a water-proof design.
