The latest edition of the iPhones, which will likely be unveiled at Apple’s September 9th event, will have professional-grade stills and video, according to a report.
The iPhone 6S’ and 6S Plus’ revamped hardware reportedly supports 12-megapixel images and 4K video, with a front-facing flash, anonymous sources told technology blog 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman.
Both the new models will include a faster image signal processor that prevents bigger pictures from getting washed out, Gurman reports. The revamped hardware means the camera could support video for the newest 4K televisions, which have the ultra-high-definition, four times the resolution of a regular 1080 pixel TV.
Last year’s iPhone 6 had an 8-megapixel camera and 1080p HD video capabilities, according to the company’s website, with focus and sensor options that prompted the “Shot with an iPhone 6” marketing campaign.
Now that Apple confirmed the iPhone 6S’s Sept. 9 launch event, the internet is abuzz with what consumers can expect from the new model. 9to5Mac previously reported the phone could have twice the speed for web browsing.
With large markets like China reaching smartphone saturation, according to some estimates, the 6S and 6S Plus could also test whether Apple’s new phones will spark the upgrade clamor as in the past, some analysts have said.
