According to the rumors, the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus could sport a dual camera configuration. Now thanks to a photo posted by Appleclub.tw (via Cult of Mac), it seems that a photo of the component has surfaced. As you can see in the photo above, it certainly shows a component with dual cameras.
However it is impossible to tell if this component is meant for another device, a prototype, or for the iPhone, so it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt for now. That being said, there are some persistent rumors to indicate that the iPhone 7 Plus could come with a dual camera setup, but the kicker is that not all iPhone 7 Plus units will have it.
The reports have suggested that Apple could have a variant of the iPhone 7 Plus with a dual camera design, and that this could be a higher-end version of the phone aimed more towards photography enthusiasts versus the more casual smartphone user. The component also shows one lens larger than the other, which is apparently due to the fact that it will allow for further zoom.
This seems to be in line with a recently discovered patent that shows how a dual camera setup would work, in which the camera is capable of capturing a photo that’s zoomed in, and a wide-angle photo.
