Apple rumors fly as DSLR-quality iPhone camera is on the horizon

Apple rumors fly as they acquire LinX - DSLR-quality iPhone cameras may be on the horizon

Thanks to a recent acquisition of LinX Computational Imaging Ltd., Apple has been strongly rumored to begin producing DSRL-quality iPhone cameras for their next releases. This Israeli-based firm focuses on depth-sensing camera technology and has been picked out by Apple as important enough for a $20 million buyout as pointed out by The Wall Street Journal.

LinX utilizes an array of sensors in order to take many images at the same time, using this information to produce better imagery.

However, Apple has claimed that they will purchase companies every now and then but chooses not disclose why it has taken place - making the DSLR-quality camera claim simply a rumor at this stage.

Intel already has depth-sensing technology of their own, but we're told that LinX is just that much better. Take a look at these images thanks to Techspot.
