New rumors reinforce the jump to 12 megapixels of the iPhone 6s camera



New rumors reinforce the jump to 12 megapixels of the iPhone 6s camera


Analyst Kevin King says that the iPhone 6s will have a 12 megapixel camera with smaller pixels

Many users have been waiting for an increase in the number of megapixels of the iPhone camera for a long time, specifically four years. Since the launch of the iPhone 4s (and it has rained since then), Apple has kept the 8 megapixels in the rear camera throughout the different generations of iPhone that have been coming to the market. Now, with the iPhone 6s that will be presented in a few months, the long-awaited jump could definitely come.

A few days ago the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that the next iPhone 6s would have a new 12 megapixel camera, among other new features that we encourage you to discover in this article. Now, a new analyst reinforces Kuo’s prediction and points to that jump in number of megapixels for the next generation of the apple smartphone.

This is Kevin King, an analyst at IHS, who recently posted on Weibo that the iPhone 6s will feature a 12 megapixel rear camera with a few smaller pixels which could achieve excellent image quality. The rest of the news in relation to the camera are still unknown, although we should discover them as we get closer to the presentation date of the device.

Without going any further, last November, the well-known technology journalist John Gruber wrote that the iPhone 6s would have the “most important camera advance” in the history of the phone, incorporating features such as a dual-lens system or 4K recording. Unfortunately, months later, some sources denied this information because it would imply a redesign of the iPhone 6s chassis, and as you know, Apple will retain the same external design as in the current generation.

More recently a rumor indicated that the iPhone 6s could have a new camera with optical zoom system, although all this information is still in the air waiting for the production of the components to start and the leaks can confirm or deny it.

Of course, as they insist from MacRumors, the number of megapixels does not determine the quality of the image, because other aspects affect more decisively such as the quality of the sensor, the aperture or the capture of light. In this way, a higher level of megapixels will allow taking larger photographs and, therefore, when enlarging them, a lower level of detail will be lost.
