Today, only the lazy ones don't know that the iPhone 7 Plus will get a dual-lens camera. This is not a new solution - in the recent past, such PV modules have already been offered by HTC, LG and Huawei. Will Apple outperform its competitors?
In 2014, the Taiwanese company HTC introduced the One M8 smartphone. Its key feature is the Duo camera with a traditional sensor and a second camera for measuring depth. This system allowed smartphone owners to refocus the image even after it was captured.
The idea was praised, but the world, as they say, was not crazy about it. HTC got it all figured out, and a year later ditched the Duo in favor of a standard, higher-resolution camera.
If so, why doesn't it work out exactly the same with Apple?
The main reason sounds trite - Apple is Apple. The company has a hungry audience for new features and a huge marketing budget that will convince even notorious skeptics of the need for a new camera. Another reason to expect success is that Cupertino is well aware that the quality of the camera has become the main factor when choosing a new smartphone. Finally, the "old" design of the iPhone 7 requires Apple to make a "killer feature" out of something else, and measures are the best candidate for this role.

Apple, of course, hasn't told anyone yet - but numerous leaks leave no doubt that the dual-lens camera will be used on at least one of the new iPhone 7. According to Bloomberg, it will only be installed on the iPhone 7 Plus.
It should be noted that the "dual" camera is still in demand today. The Chinese manufacturer Huawei puts it in new models (for example, in the Honor 8) and assures that the pictures are only better. Why? One camera in Honor 8 takes pictures of everything in "color", the second takes a very high quality monochrome image. Then the pictures are stitched together, and the final picture, according to Huawei, is more contrasting than the same photos on ordinary smartphone cameras.
