Dual cameras for the i.MX6

Will any of the i.MX6 family support two image sensors for a stereoscopic camera application? I would like to use two 14mp CMOS image sensors running simultaneously, each with a 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface. Or will I have to use an FPGA for my stereo camera, in order to support a 30 fps frame rate for both cameras? It looks like the Snapdragon 800 has three 4-lane CSI-2 ports. Perhaps that would be a better choice?

for mx6 CSI performance, you can refer to the chapter 37.1.2.1.1 Camera Ports of Reference Manual, For parallel interface, the maximum speed of the interface is 240Mhz, for High-speed serial interface, Up to four data lanes; up to 800 Mbps per lane. the performance depends on what framerate, data format you use.
