Documents have been leaked containing information about the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus camera module. The document reportedly comes from an employee of Foxconn, one of Apple’s largest manufacturing facilities in China.
The document solidifies rumors that we have speculated about in the past. Rumors around the web have stated for sometime that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus would be receiving a new 12 megapixel camera, upgraded from 8 megapixels on the current generation. Also upgraded will be the video resolution capability, now up to 4K quality.
Apple hasn’t faced any scrutiny with the quality of their current camera modules. In fact, Apple has circulated an entire ad campaign around the camera quality of the iPhone 6. The ad campaign known as “Shot on iPhone 6” showcases beautiful photos and videos from all around the world that were taken on the iPhone 6. This campaign showcases that the quality of imagery taken on the iPhone 6 is excellent, however there is always room for improvement. Moviemakers and video buffs will be ecstatic to see 4k video resolution brought to the iPhone. The new ultra-high definition resolution will make videos truly pop.
Other information coming from the Foxconn documents states that the iPhone 6s will include a standard 2 GB of RAM. This is being upgraded from 1 GB in the iPhone 6, which has proven to be more than necessary. While the current generation of iPhones run great on 1 GB of RAM, it is true that 4K video recording would eat up plenty of RAM on the iPhone 6s, calling for more storage.
Selfie addicts will be pleased to hear the front-facing camera will most likely get an upgrade as well. The current iPhone 6 front-facing camera takes decent enough pictures, but like we said before there is always room for improvement. The document states that the new front-facing camera will be upgraded to 5 megapixels, up from 1.2 megapixels. Current competition from Samsung is already offering 5 megapixel front-facing cameras, so the upgrade will be a welcome addition for iPhone lovers.
The information cannot be verified, however Foxconn employees have provided leaks in the past, which were usually accurate. The document is also consistent with most recent rumors from other credible sources.
