2018 iPhone Lineup Could Get the Same iPhone X Dual-Lens Camera Design


With its vertical orientation and improve spec sheet, the iPhone X dual-lens camera is a major upgrade in the smartphone lineup. This upgrade has been rumored to be retained for the 2018 iPhone family, so if you want slightly better optics, you might want to wait for next year.

KGI Securities Analyst Believes the iPhone X Dual-Lens Camera Strikes the Perfect Balance Between Picture Quality and Form Factor Design

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, he disagrees with a market speculation that Apple intends to use a 7P (seven-lens plastic) or a 2G3P (two-glass three plastic) lens design for the rear camera of the 2018 iPhone lineup.

“With its rear camera specs, iPhone X has managed to strike a phenomenal balance between picture quality and form factor design, in our opinion, given how far we've come today technologically. Switching from a 6P lens to a 7P lens or a 2G3P hybrid lens, with camera module design largely similar to iPhone X's, would make for only limited improvements in aperture performance, we believe.”

Also, Kuo is under the impression that if Apple were to use the 7P lens design on the 2018 iPhone lineup, it would result in unnecessary supply risk, which is something that plagued the iPhone X orders and the tech giant would not want history to repeat itself.

The iPhone X is also the first to provide support for 4K video recording at 60 frames per second so we’ll definitely see this addition in next year’s iPhones, and possibly new features courtesy of software updates.

Do you think Apple will be making the right decision by releasing phones with the same camera design? Let us know down in the comments.
