  • New Apple Patent Suggests Next Generation iPhones May Have Two Rear Cameras


    A new Apple patent titled ‘Small form factor telephoto camera’ has been published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this week. According to this patent, it is possible that the Cupertino-based company will be supplying the next generation iPhones with two-rear facing cameras. Apple wouldn’t be the first company to do such a thing as HTC already did this. Last year HTC released the HTC One M8 with two-rear cameras as well as their previous Evo 3D which used two sensors for 3D photos. But if Apple decides to go this route, then the picture quality should be even better than what the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus gives now.

    Apparently one lens will be a small format telephoto camera, meanwhile the other is a normal-to-wide angle camera just like the one current iPhones have. The company has already improved their camera quality drastically with every new iPhone release. Apple’s new patent notes that the camera lens will have pixels size of 1.2 microns or less.

    Apple has many patents that have to do with iPhone camera improvements and technologies. One of which along with the telephoto camera, is one that uses three sensors.

      This would be an alternative to having optical zoom? But then why insist on a maximum pixel size, which in itself might suggest that quality would be less than that of the primary lens?

      Usually new patents have little to do with the very next generation of products.

      That would make the iP6 twice as ugly.

      In your opinion.

      I myself would love to see something like this. Being able to capture 3D video with my phone would be great.

      I'm wonder how long it will take other Mobile device makers to try and implement this info.
