Is Apple Offering 3D Photography In Next iPhones?
The next smartphone in the Apple iPhone line-up which is expected to launch next year, is rumoured to have numerous ground-breaking features. One of these is said to be a dual camera with 3D support. This tech is said to be based on the LG Innotek camera tech that Apple has been studying for a while.
Apple’s new smartphone is being tagged as iPhone 8 for now and will most likely have an array of new features. According to the Korea Economic Daily (KED), the company has been developing a smartphone camera module which will enable users to take 3D photos.
As LG Innotek already has 3D technology, the effort of the two companies together is expected to result in 3D iPhone photography next year. The LG Innotek technology has already been applied to Optimus 3D, an LG smartphone which launched in 2011. According to KED, the company has been supplying its dual cameras exclusively to Apple for the iPhone 7.
3D photographs are not like holograms as many people imagine. 3D photography on Apple devices will allow images to have a sense of depth of field. Also, when the image is titled, they will possibly create an effect in which elements of the photo which are close to the front, give the impression of moving across elements of the image that are in the background.
So this does not mean that if you spin the image around you will be able to see all sides. This sort of technology is still a while away from being available on smartphones. One of the most useful aspect of this technology is that users will be able to change the focus of a particular area, after capturing the image. So now even blurry photos can be adjusted and made useful.
The technology will most likely only be available on the higher versions of the new phone, such as the Plus model.
While we are still possibly a year away from seeing a new iPhone (Apple usually launches new gadgets in September), there are tons of speculations flitting about the digital sphere.
