What are the odds the next iPhone will be featuring 3D-capabilities? Not very likely (Apple isn’t known to incorporate the latest technologies in its phones until they’ve been proven or refined) but if you’re willing to believe these photographs of what is said to be an iPhone 5 – the next iPhone might actually support 3D. The photographs shows a phone that looks a lot like the iPhone 4, except that it features dual-cameras on the back of the phone instead of a single camera on the top left corner of the phone.
In case you didn’t know, dual-cameras are required for devices to capture stereoscopic 3D footage – so dual-cameras on this iPhone suggests that it will be capable of displaying 3D visuals. Now I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to believe that these are pictures of a genuine iPhone 5. Firstly, Apple never puts the generation number on the back of the device. The “iPhone 5” has a “5” next to the iPhone name – and we don’t even have to talk about the font that looks terribly out of place. Secondly, the photos are said to be from China – a treasure trove for smartphone clones (including some that we’ve covered before i.e. the iPhone 4 Nano and Android iPhone). It’s highly unlikely we’re staring at pictures of the real device.
Though we’re not discounting the possibility of a 3D iPhone in the future, it’s probably not going to be anytime soon and we highly doubt the leaked photographs are of the real deal. What do you think?
