Report: Apple acquires mobile imaging company LinX

Apple has acquired camera technology company LinX, CNBC reports. The price of the acquisition appears to be around $20 million, according to sources who informed Dow Jones of the deal. The Israeli company develops high-quality imaging hardware for integration into mobile devices, and aims to “put SLR image quality” into users’ pockets, according to a press release last year announcing the company’s successful development of “miniature multi-aperture cameras designed for mobile devices.” The release notes that the camera modules are significantly smaller than typical mobile camera hardware while producing better quality results than typical smartphone cameras through various innovative technologies. It seems likely that Apple intends to use the company’s assets to help improve next-generation iPhone cameras.
