The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are expected sometime next month, with rumors suggesting Apple may hold an event on September 9. We are expecting Force Touch, iOS 9 (certainly), a faster A9 processor and more. Now a new report sheds some light on the camera features.
According to 9to5Mac, which is typically dead-on with such rumors, Apple will introduce a 12-megapixel camera on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, in addition to support for 4K video recording and even a front-facing flash. That’s backed by a recent report from supply chain insiders who said the camera will receive the 12MP module.
The flash might seem like a gimmick, but with the increasing popularity of selfies it may turn out to actually be useful for some folks. 9to5Mac said part of the bump to the 12-megapixel camera is thanks to a new image signal processor on the new A9 chip, which is reportedly being manufactured by Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
Finally, 9to5Mac added that the front-facing camera will support slow motion and 720p video. Sounds like Apple is putting a big focus on camera quality, which is going to be much appreciated by consumers who might otherwise be looking at amazing alternatives such as the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 5.
