If only, this site was more with interactive inducing interface. This site is run by enthusiasts though, never let it become corporate centric like MacRumors. Until then, that's what keeps AppleInsider loving unlike PhoneArena. I would like to someday offer my enthusiastic service here as well.

It's also time that other areas are met like the 6-element lens which are made of plastics. During the iPhone 4s-5 period Apple planned of succeeding to glass but it wasn't cost effective at the time. Now, LG has out-of-the 6 has one replaced with Glass.
One could go even with Crystals like Sapphire and eventually Diamond but taking the first with Glass is like moving from transmissive to emmisive displays. If the plastics are replaced than not only more truer colours can be achieved but purer light will eliminate noise even at 50mp.
I'm guessing that building a telephoto module with glass element(s), large aperture, and a larger sensor in a stack height less than 8 mm, and manufacturing that in volumes of at least 50 million units is non trivial.
However, aside the fanboyism, The discussion mentioned above is not a random idea of an individual but an explorative discovery evaluated & portrayed by Apple alone. I hope Apple is conscious enough to not live in the same bubble as it's worshippers develop upon. Pixel XL 2 made quite a good show today.
Apple saved that idea when they might feel the need to increase resolution. They have avoided that road for sometime now. Largan have started production of 18mp Image Sensor this October.
