September is still a long way off, but rumors regarding Cupertino's next iPhone are already coming in hard. Apple analysts from KGI, like Ming-Chi Kuo have definitely proven a trustworthy source of information in the past and although they mostly deal with analytical results and speculations, predictions have often turned out accurate in the past. In a recent memo to investors, Kuo talks of a dual rear capturing camera setup for the iPhone 7 Plus, or at least a certain version of it.

Considering Apple's track record for the past couple of years, we have every reason to believe that the company will release two variants of its handset, most-likely a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and a 5.5-inch 7 Plus one.

The rumor for a dual rear iSight capturing camera setup concerns the bigger iPhone 7 Plus model. According to Kuo, the handset will be available with an two CIS setup, most-likely powered by LinX – a company specializing in creating ultra-compact capturing camera sensors for slim smartphones, acquired by Apple back in 2015. The alleged setup will include two 12 MegaPixel (MP) sensors, one with optical image stabilization and a wider field of view and the other, a 2-3x telephoto lens. OIS is definitely not a novelty, but optical zoom is a whole recent uncharted territory for the iPhone.

The dual capturing camera setup will surely allow for some pretty neat recent features like variable focus and bokeh effects.

Ming-Chi Kuo also speculates that not all the iPhone 7 Plus models will have the dual-camera setup. The option will allegedly be offered at a premium which should assist reduce the production strain for the recent technology – a rather common occurrence with recent Apple tech. He expects that about 25% to 35% of shipped iPhone 7 Plus units will have the extra feature. To be honest that seems very hard to believe as manufacturing two different Plus versions doesn't sound like Apple at all and it will mostly likely be a case of all or none of the units acquire the feature.
