Barron's quotes Nomura Securities and Citi Research saying that all the new 5.5″ iPhones 7 coming this fall will have dual cameras. Nomura’s Chris Chang thinks Sony is now behind schedule, which means that Apple will have to go to LG Innotek for assembly:

"We think Sony may not be able to deliver its full share of dual cameras to Apple due to: (1) lower-than-expected yield, and (2) damage to its production facility from the April earthquake in Kumamoto. As a result, we think LGI will gain majority share of the initial dual camera orders from Apple...

We expect a sharp increase in camera module ASP from 2H16F as we think: 1) dual camera module is likely to command 2.5x ASP premium vs. single-cam, and 2) OIS (optical image stabilisation) will also be equipped in the new 4.7” iPhones – currently only the 5.5” model has OIS.
