iPhone 7 Might Have A Flush Rear Digital camera
Likelihood is you hate this protruding digital camera module pictured above in your present iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s. In line with a brand new rumor on the iPhone 7 design (by way of Mac Rumors), the subsequent iPhone might have a flush rear digital camera. The antenna bands throughout the again would additionally disappear.
The iPhone 6 casing was considerably thinner than the iPhone 5s casing. However there was a disadvantage — you possibly can’t actually make the digital camera module thinner if you wish to hold an ideal digital camera. Proper now, the digital camera module is the thickest half within the iPhone.
That’s why there’s a bump. That’s additionally why most Android telephones at present have a bump across the digital camera. It’s not a problem for those who use a case, but when Apple might take away this bump it will do it.
There are two prospects. Digital camera module makers have gotten a lot better just lately they usually can now make slimmer modules. Or Apple discovered a strategy to get the identical image high quality with a brand new method.
Mixed with the current rumor that claims that Apple is considering utilizing a twin-digital camera system, a slimmer digital camera module doesn’t sound too far off.
It’s unclear whether or not utilizing two separate lenses would make the digital camera module slimmer, nevertheless it could possibly be a method to cut up the elements into two stacks.
Again in December, 60 Minutes unveiled that 800 individuals are engaged on the iPhone digital camera at Apple. Apple might be all the time analysis methods to make the digital camera module smaller, however the firm additionally has different considerations — margins and manufacturing.
Switching to a twin-digital camera sensor might show to be costlier for Apple. Something that reduces the margin on the iPhone hurts the corporate’s backside line. And since Apple sells tens of tens of millions of iPhones per quarter, the corporate needs to keep away from provide chain constraints. However I actually hate this silly digital camera bump.
