Rumor: iPhone 7 Dual Camera Cancelled

BGR quotes a rumor that the upcoming iPhone 7 will not have dual camera: "Apparently, an unnamed Foxconn employee told people that the dual lens camera in the iPhone 7 Plus has been canceled because of “immature technology.” It’s not clear what that means, or whether the claim is even accurate."

  4. Apple could have killed the dual lens because of the frivolous lawsuit it is facing. Huawei could use this case to sue Apple because Huawei P9 design already is using it.

    2. Don't underestimate Chinese companies. The second claim of the patent dispute argues that iPhone 6 has the same curvature at the four corners. The fact is iPhones has been made with these curvatures since iPhone 1. And this is one of claim Apple used against Samsun Galaxy smartphone sever years ago. Strangely this original Apple patent is becoming a patent for this Chinese company.
