Last week we posted a detailed report titled "This Year's Camera Trend for Smartphones will be Dual Cameras and it's likely to Debut on the iPhone 7 Plus." The report noted that Smartphone part suppliers are ramping up competition to develop better next-generation technologies that will support wide-angle and 3D photography, iris recognition other features as the industry trend for 2016 will be for cameras that go far beyond the mere promotion of higher pixel counts. In supply chain news today we read that Apple's adoption of this technology is getting closer to reality.


It's being reported today that "Taiwan-based Largan Technology as well as Japan- and China-based camera lens makers have sent dual-lens camera samples to Apple for testing, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. Apple is reportedly planning to adopt a dual-lens camera for its next-generation iPhone Plus.


Since Largan currently supplies over 60% of Apple's smartphone cameras, some market watchers believe Apple is likely to seek dual-lens camera products from other makers to lower risks.
