One might argue that its a bit too soon for iPhone 6 rumors, but it really is often fascinating to read what the rumor mill is on about, particularly when it concerns one of the biggest product updates expected from Apple in recent years. It is widely believed that iPhone 6 will come with radical changes, presumably a bigger display and a new design. Details about the camera have emerged, originating from China, apparently the iPhone 6 will retain the existing 8 megapixel rear shooter. Since number of megapixels isn’t everything, don’t frown at the possibility that the next iPhone might not tout a jump in megapixel numbers.
Instead, the rumor claims that the camera sensor on next generation iPhone will be a bit larger as opposed to the existing sensor, which would enable it to perform better in low light conditions, when coupled with an aperture size of f/2.0 as opposed to f/2.2 on the iPhone 5s. The CMOS sensor will reportedly be made by Sony whereas the other components may be provided by Sharp and LG.
Moreover, it is also claimed that the iPhone 6 camera will also feature optical image stabilization, a feature that’s already found on several Android rivals. All this sounds good, but do keep in mind that its a bit premature, so its best to take all of this with a grain of salt for now.
