Apple is expected to reveal the next iteration of its ever-popular iPhone on Wednesday.
The Californian tech giant usually updates its smartphone lineup in early September so it can see out the end of the year on a high.
This year it will almost certainly be the iPhone 7 that’s revealed, and the online rumour mill is going into overdrive ahead of the announcement.
From photos leaked from factories in China, and concept images created by digital artists, to choice information from people with insider knowledge of Apple’s plans, the internet is abuzz with information on the the new smartphone.
Well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has issued a new research note, claiming that the iPhone 7 will include one very useful feature for photo fanatics.
The phone will reportedly have four LED flash lights – two in cool colours, and two in warm colours – and an ambient light sensor.
While the iPhone 6s ‘ camera is widely praised, it still struggles to take good photos in low-light situations. These additions should theoretically improve image quality.
It is unclear whether the new features will appear on the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 or just the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, which is also expected to feature a dual-lens camera capable of taking SLR-quality photos.
Either way, Apple is clearly stepping up its photography capabilities in the face of growing competition from the likes of Samsung, Sony and Huawei.
