It’s most likely expected that Apple will continue to make phones will dual cameras in 2017, however, a The Korea Economic Daily has revealed in a report that Apple could make a big change in regards to their cameras being in 3D.
According to the report, the cameras on the iPhone 8 will be supplied by LG Innotek, which currently supply cameras for the iPhone 7 Plus. The cameras will be in 3D, which means it enables them to 3D photography. It’s not exactly clear as to what this means, but 9to5Mac say that Apple has previously filed for patents in regards to 3D object and gesture control.
This could have a range of possibilities, but the one thing that could have potential is augmented reality technology. Apple hasn’t been quiet on this either in the past. If Apple was to include this technology into an iPhone it wouldn’t be a huge stretch, but it is unknown as to how they will take advantage if this feature.
9to5Mac suggests that there might not even be augmented reality technology included and that it will only be an improvement over Portrait Mode on the iPhone 7 Plus, which could do with some more improvements. These rumors are making the iPhone 8 sound like a very interesting device to look forward to in 2017.
