KGI Reveals iPhone 7 Plus Dual Camera OIS Details

9to5Mac quotes KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo saying that in iPhone 7 dual camera, the OIS is installed only on wide angle camera:

"Note that for the dual-camera of iPhone 7 Plus, wide-angle CCM is equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS) VCM, while telephoto CCM only comes with general VCM. We believe the focus of the dual-camera upgrade will be equipping telephoto CCM with OIS CCM, so as to significantly enhance optical and digital zoom quality."

MacRumors too quotes Ming-Chi Kuo research note:

"While an attractive addition for avid picture takers and professional photographers, the iPhone 7 Plus dual-camera is not a mass-market killer application yet. Along with its high cost (estimated at over US$30-40) and the necessity for Apple to enhance the added value of high-end iPhone models, we expect only high-end new iPhone models (30-40% of them) to have a dual-camera next year."


  1. May be if iPhone 7 Plus sells significantly better than 6s Plus last year APPLE will consider putting dual lens in the none Plus model.

  2. It probably just takes time for the dual camera to come to the smaller iPhones. Just like the OIS took 2 years to come to the 4.7" iPhone.

  3. i think it is not enough space to place dual camera in 4.7" iphone, the dual cam only exist on 5.5" iphone.

  4. Shouldn't the telephoto CCM has OIS, as it designed to shoot objects at further distance?
