However, the securities firm also indicates that the new camera setup likely won't be included in all of the next generation iPhone models, presumed to be called the iPhone 7. Instead, analysts speculate the technology will be limited to the larger 5.5in iPhone 7 Plus, and not the 4.7in models. It could even be exclusive to certain versions of the larger phone, per the report, which means you might have to go for the bigger and more expensive phones to get this particular feature.
Don't get your hopes too high, though. As with any information about new Apple products before they're announced on stage, this is far from official, and there's a possibility the badass new camera won't happen, or at least, won't happen just yet.
