A few days ago we learned some predictions regarding the iPhone 6s, courtesy of famous analyst Ming Chi Kuo. Those included a 12 megapixel camera at the back of the phone, that’s once again confirmed today by Kevin Wang, IHS Technology Research Director in China.
It’s been quite a few iPhone generations using 8 MP cameras, with upgrades it’s true, but still the resolution is the same as it was in the days of the iPhone 4s. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will bring forth 12 MP cameras, according to Wang. Strangely enough, the pixels of the cameras will be smaller than those of the current gen iPhones.
Usually, larger pixels are implemented on newer phones, with the advantage of less noise and improved low light behaviour. Of course, in the usual Apple fashion, there may be some other gimmick like a dual lens with optical zoom in the mix. It’s strange that nobody is talking about an upgraded selfie camera, considering the current trend.
I’m more curious to see if the new camera protrudes or not.
