Japanese tech blog – Macotakara.jp (via Industrial and Commercial Times) is reporting that Apple’s next -generation iPhone will feature a 8-megapixel iSight rear camera instead of 12-megapixel.
Apple opted for larger sensor, pixels and aperture in the iPhone 5s while retaining the 8-megapixel iSight camera, which first appeared in the iphone5. The iSight camera in the iPhone featured a new sensor that was 15 percent larger, bigger pixels measuring 1.5 microns and an aperture of ƒ/2.2 allowing more light in to capture better photos. Perhaps Apple will continue to improve on these aspects of the camera and not on the number of pixels.
In a blog post, Apple engineer – Mark Zimmer suggested that better pixels is far more useful than larger or more pixels in a smartphone camera.
In other news, a purported image of the rear housing of the iPhone 6 has been leaked by Chinese tech blog – C Tech.
