With Apple’s latest acquisition, can this future upgrade possibly match the camera quality of Samsung Galaxy handsets?
Cameras on smartphones are pretty useful nowadays. The quality is superb to the point that, when the user is in a tight situation and couldn?t find a much higher quality camera like a DSLR, the most possible substitute to that is their mobile phone. So far, the only smartphone today that has a great camera quality is the Samsung Galaxy S6, with?Apple?s iPhone 6 is just a notch?below it, like what one?can see on iPhone hacks? camera quality comparison.
However, it looks like Apple?s next flagship might receive a boost in its camera functionality that might even have a chance to stand up against the quality of the?Samsung Galaxy S6.
Apple recently bought LinX to improve their camera quality
According to Apple Insider, Apple just recently acquired LinX, the Isreali based camera lens manufacturer for around $20 million dollars.
In that report, Apple is now planning to give their future flagships a big boost when it comes to the camera quality. One of LinX proud features is the ability to shoot photos using your handset with a DSLR-like quality?pretty much what they boast on their website, which reads,??LinX cameras are significantly smaller than any camera on the market today, leading the way to DSLR performance in slim handsets.?
Can this boost actually match up with Samsung Galaxy S6?
If Apple proceeds with this big jump then this signals the advent of better quality photos for the iPhone and other Apple products, as?DSLR cameras are always used by professional photographers to take photos with almost complete detail captured.
LinX explains on their website, ?The LinX cameras not only capture 2D images but also acquire very accurate depth information of the complete scene. We allow Apps to freely use the 3D information captured by our camera to achieve amazing new features such as the ability to refocus an image after it has been captured, measurement of the true dimensions of objects, 3D object modeling and real time background replacement for video calls.?
Future Apple flagships (possibly the iPhone 7) will have the capability to capture both 2D and 3D models, flawlessly?by the looks of it.
