Apple is reportedly buying a small, but growing, group of frames, and it’s not a big deal.
Apple has bought a number of photo frames from the photo-framing giant Fuji for a whopping $2.7 billion, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing sources familiar with the matter.
The move comes as Apple continues to fight the ongoing lawsuit against the company, alleging patent infringement and a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Fuji said it will not make any further comment on the deal.
We’ll be announcing a number more products in the coming weeks, and will share more information about our partnership with Apple in the months ahead, the company said in a statement to Recode.
The deal includes two Fuji cameras: the APS-C and the APX-1, both of which have a 1:2 aspect ratio and can take 16-megapixel images, according to the Journal.
Fuji is also developing a 1.5x crop sensor for the AP-S-X and AP-X, which can shoot up to 120-megapixels.
While the APMEX-X1 will be available at the beginning of next year, the APEX-1 will debut in early 2019, the Journal said.
The APEX models will also be available on Fuji’s App Store, and the company is also expected to release a smaller Fuji APX sensor in the same timeframe.
