1080p videos coming to Apple iPhone 6s front camera
The iPhone 6 might have one of the best cameras available to smartphones, however, not many users will agree some aspects of the camera is enough especially when it comes to quantity.
For five years straight, Apple has decided to stick with an 8MP camera, since the days of the iPhone 4S. This year, we’ve read about rumors of a 12MP camera coming with the September-bound iPhone 6S — a huge relief for many Apple fans who prayed for a bigger camera. Not just that, changes are coming to the front camera too.
The current iPhone generation (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) offer just 1MP frontal cameras that output videos in maximum of 720p resolution. The upcoming iPhone 6S is said to feature one that has 1080p recording capacity. To achieve this, Apple has to use a 2MP sensor at least, and this comes in a time where the Cupertino tech giant is really needed to up it’s megapixels game like other manufacturers who are now using as high as 16MP and 20MP sensors for their flagships’ main cameras.
According to PhoneArena:
Developer Hamza Sood recently discovered that a certain iOS 9 manifest file contains references to a number of front-facing camera features which are currently not available on any iPhone. This includes 1080p video recording, a front-facing flash, as well as a few modes such as 60FPS video recording, slow-motion video recording at 240FPS, and Panorama.
With that being said, it’s needless to point out that the change is also coming to the Apple iPhone 6S Plus phablet, which alongside the iPhone 6S, is expected to launch in September this year to complete the one-year iPhone cycle Apple has put in place since 2007.
