Smartphones with dual-lens camera is not a new concept. Most of us won’t even be interested in hearing about it.

However, if this camera setup is related to the upcoming iPhone in any way, we will focus on it with eyes and ears.
Apple recently submitted a patent application asking permission for the inclusion of a dual-lens camera setup on the back of the iPhones along with some great advanced software features that would allow users to take advantage of the new camera system in multiple ways.
The patent described an iPhone with normal wide-angled lens that would be similar to the one currently found on the iPhone 6S.
There would be another telephoto lens beside the normal lens which will be capable of capturing both video and photos that are zoomed in.
It is important to note that the current iPhones allow digital zoom, but the quality isn’t worth applauding.
The most beneficial aspect of the patented new camera system is that Apple’s software could allow users to seamlessly switch between the two lenses without having to even think about which they are currently using.
Apple, in its patent, has already mentioned that those users could zoom in on photos beyond what software allows.
iPhone’s second camera will easily pick up the strain without any consideration by the user.
