We have been getting more and more information regarding the iPhone 6S and what features it is expected to have. And, today we have more confirmation regarding some of the features previously mentioned. The iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus is going to pack a 12 megapixel camera!
We had previous reports that the camera was going to be upgraded on the iPhone 6S but there weren’t any concrete reports. Well, today it seems we might have our first “confirmation” thanks to another analyst.
Kevin Wang, IHS’s Technology Research Director for China has “confirmed” that Apple’s next iPhone will have a 12 megapixel iSight camera, and that the pixels will be smaller compared to the current ones.
Now just having a higher megapixel count doesn’t mean that the camera is going to get a whole lot better, there are other factors involved in it too. But having a higher megapixel count doesn’t hurt.
Apple is going to backtrack regarding the pixel size for the next iPhone. Bigger pixels mean that more light can be captured, and in darkness this makes a whole lot of difference. If Apple wants to decrease the size of the pixels then it has to bring something else to make up for it.
But increasing the megapixel count would mean that more information can be packed into a picture and also this would be the first time since 2011 (iPhone 4S) that Apple would increase the megapixel count of the iPhone.
What are your thoughts on this?
