iPhone 6s Camera Leaked: Specs Reveal High-Res 12MP, 4K Recording, Front Flash For Selfies And More

Officially that Apple has scheduled an event for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s launch on September 9th and sent out invites for that live conference. Just after that, reports surfaced regarding the camera aspect on both the new iPhones, and we got hold on certain leaks in the past that the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will feature an improved 12-megapixel camera with 4K video recording capabilities. Now it looks like these features are pretty much confirmed for announcement at the iPhone launch event, and it appears that Apple has with it something up for the ‘selfie’ crowd.

Today through sources of its own confirmed that both new models of the iPhone will indeed feature a five-element 12-megapixel sensor with 4K recording, along with a slew of improvements to other areas of the said devices as well.  According to 9to5Mac, while the new flagships will be able to capture larger images for the firt time since the iPhone 4s debuted in 2011 with an 8-megapixel camera, the single processing will also be significantly better which will result in more natural colors and better sharpness. Additionally hints about the iPhone 7’s main shooter, will be obtained through the new A9 SoC (or SiP, dependinding on what Apple reveals on Sept. 9).

What’s interesting to note is those new iPhones will indeed supports 4K video recording as part of the camera package onboard, which followed by the next-gen Apple TV might also get support for 4K output, but shouldn’t be taken as authentic until verified by Apple.

Front-facing camera on the new iPhone “FaceTime” will also be getting an improved sensor for producing better high-quality photos. Sources also claim that support will be added for panorama shots, and that 720[ slo-mo video recording will also be available through the Selfie unit. Flash will also be added to the iPhone 6s camera, as well as seen on 6s Plus, but not in the conventional manner. It looks like Apple won’t opt for an LED flash upfront. Instead, akin to how Snapchat does it, the screen will shine bright white as soon as the shutter is pressed to emulate a flash effect without ruining the aesthetics with a front LED. Clever enough!

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are slated to be announced at Apple’s media event on Sept. 9, invitations for which have begun rolling out. Officially, the two new phones will most likely continue the tradition of previous launches where the “S” mdels have always focused on internal improvements and no design changes. It will be more interesting to see what actually Apple holds and ends up revealing on that day.

Stay tuned!
