Light is still in the early stages, as it doesn’t yet have a prototype of a full product completed. For now, it just has the camera modules and its pictures can be combined with its software. But, the startup says it expects the first Light cameras, with 52-megapixel resolution, to appear in the smartphone industry in 2017.

So, this cooperation will probably be directed to some other companies. Recently, Apple acquired Israeli company called LinX that could bring DSLR and 3D mapping to the future iPhones.
