Recently IHS analyst China Kevin Wang made a forecast that the iPhone 6s will get a camera with higher resolution. Today resource Feng, referring to own sources confirmed this information: in next generation iPhone will be set the main camera with 12-megapixel RGBW sensor manufactured by Sony. This company is among the leading suppliers of PV modules for flagship smartphones.
The current resolution cameras Apple smartphones, 8 megapixels, has not changed since the release of the iPhone 4s in 2011. Unlike other manufacturers, Apple in recent years has not chased a number of megapixels main camera, preferring to improve other indicators.
The more megapixels, the more light is capable of capturing camera and the better you should get photos. However, quantity does not always lead to best quality. Apple has long understood that it is not only the number of megapixels, but also their size. 12-megapixel camera in the iPhone 6s will improve the quality of the recording due to the use of RGBW Sony sensors, in which, besides the red, green and blue pixels are white pixels. In addition, it will boast increased speed AF and will be complemented by two-tone led flash.
In the iPhone 5s, which was released in 2013, Apple increased the size of the megapixels from 1.4 to 1.5 microns, and since then it has not changed, increasing the quality of shooting at the expense of other factors. iPhone 6, for example, the company is equipped with iSight sensor of a new generation” with f/2.2 aperture) and Focus Pixels, which moves twice as fast autofocus. 5.5-inch phablet 6 Plus has got optical image stabilization (“six” or less advanced digital) that allows you to take sharper photos.
That iPhone 6s will be equipped with advanced camera that as far as image quality will not yield “DSLRs”, last November, said the author of the blog Daring Fireball John Gruber, citing an informed source. “…The camera [iPhone] next year will make the biggest leap, ” he said in a recent podcast, I don’t know what that means, but, from what I hear, it’s some kind of weird two-lens system in which the back camera uses two lenses and somehow produces image quality comparable to a “mirror” camera”.
The official presentation of the next generation iPhone is expected in September 2015.
