Is Apple doing a dual camera double take?

09 August 2016, 19:01 Kyle Venktess, Fin24

Johannesburg - Dual cameras are all the rage as the latest feature to be added to smartphones developed by top manufacturers.

Most recently it was rumored that the next Apple iPhone would likely be fitted with two cameras on the rear of the device.

If online tech gossip is to be believed, the next iPhone will join the ranks of numerous devices already on local market to offer dual camera functionality.

Dual cameras are set to be a game-changing feature in the world of smartphone photography, turning the most amateurish of newbies into seasoned pros at the tap of a button.

The functionality allows for the user to manipulate the depth of field of the image being captured, keeping the subject in focus and the background out of focus.

This in turn creates an image that looks as if it were captured on an Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera.

Here is our pick of smartphones already available, featuring two cameras on the rear:

HTC One M8

Released in 2014, the M8 was one of the first devices on the market to feature two cameras on the rear of the device. The device featured two 4 megapixel (MP) with autofocus and even a dual-tone flash.

LG X Cam

Announced this year in February, the X Cam features one 13 MP 78 degree camera and another 5 MP 120 degree camera.

Huawei P9

Featuring a dual 12 MP Leica optics cameras, the P9 is allows for the user to adjust aperture effects of photos even after they have been saved to the device.


Announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year along with the X Cam, the G5 features a 16 MP 78 degree and an 8 MP 135 degree camera.
