According to alleged leaked specifications the other day, the iPhone 6 is said to feature an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 3.2MP front-facing camera, essentially keeping the same camera specs as the iPhone 5s. Admittedly that’s not a bad thing as Apple’s iPhone cameras are pretty good, but at the same time as far as playing the numbers game is concerned, it does not look as good on paper compared to the competition. With that being said, a new report from IT168 claims to have information about the iPhone 6’s camera, and that instead of an 8MP camera, the iPhone 6 is said to feature a 10MP camera.
The camera will also sport a wider aperture at f/1.8 versus f/2.2 which is the aperture at the moment. A wider aperture will allow for faster image capture as well as brighter images under low-light settings. The report also goes on to claim that Apple will be changing the filter used in the camera and will replace the hybrid IR filter with a resin lens filter manufactured by Japanese company, JSR. These new filters are said to be thinner and lighter and can take clearer images due to its ability to minimize the color shifts of CMOS image sensors. If anything this definitely sounds like a welcome upgrade to the iPhone’s camera but given that it is a rumor, do take it with a grain of salt for now.
