Apple's rumored acquisition of LinX could allow future iPhones to offer SLR quality images
LinX builds smartphone and tablet cameras with sensors that provide depths of field in one image. When combined, the images form a 3D picture. Photographs taken from LinX cameras are single-lens-reflex (SLR) quality, despite coming from a small smartphone camera. The technology also allows for high quality images to be captured in low-light conditions. When lighting is normal, these cameras offer faster exposure times.
We could see Apple employing LinX technology on the iPhone, iPad and perhaps even the Apple Watch. This might take place with the 2016 release of what is expected to be the Apple iPhone 7. There is also speculation that Apple will employ a dual lens system on future models, similar to what was on the HTC One (M8).
By producing a multi-aperture camera for future iPhone models, LinX could use smaller sensors that would result in a rear camera for the iPhone that not only improves on the current unit, but would also do away with the protruding lens seen on the newest iPhone models.
