Apple had acquired LinX, an imaging company for $20 million in 2015. The Cupertino tech giant is rumored to use imaging technology of LinX to let the iPhone 7 Plus shoot DSLR-quality photos. Kuo added that the dual lens camera of the phablet will carry support for optical zoom capabilities.

The current generation iPhone 6S models feature 2 GB of RAM. However, in this year, the iPhone 7 Plus is likely to exclusively come with 3 GB of RAM. The inclusion of additional gigabyte of RAM will allow the upcoming phablet to make the most of its new imaging technology.
