According to TechCrunch, LinX specifically targets tablets and smartphones that can’t offer the kinds of background defocus that’s popular on low aperture lenses paired with DSLRs, but could also help achieve better low-light performance, ideal for taking pictures indoors or at night without using a flash.

Apple’s plans could also include putting the tech to use in its notebooks, replacing those camera modules with better performing parts while respecting size constraints. The acquisition could also potentially help push image quality while helping slim down camera design.
