iPhone 6s Camera Will Be 4K Capable And Shoot 12MP Pics

Apple / iOS / Mobile / Tech

The hypebeast will be in full swing from here on out as we roll up on the September 9th Apple event. The latest iPhone hype is that the iPhone 6s camera will shoot 4K video as well as 12MP pictures. This is something that’s not new for Android users as many Android phones shoot 13MP pictures and some even higher than that. As far as 4K video, that again is a feature Android has had for some time now but one that’s not really all that useful unless you have a 4K monitor or television.

So Android users can chalk up yet another set of features the iPhone will have that they’ve had for a few iterations of phones now. But there is one thing we are forgetting. Even though the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have 8MP cameras, they still managed to stay neck and neck with some of the best Android 13MP phones out there. Most recently I read a Galaxy Note 5 and iPhone 6 Plus camera comparison and for the first time I could clearly say that the iPhone lost, marginally.

“Because of an upgraded image signal processor that comes as part of the new A9 system-on-a-chip, the new sensor will not wash out or otherwise decrease the quality of photos,” writes reporter Mark Gurman.

Apple has always put stock into its optics and software and not so much into its megapixels. This is why iPhone photos have continually been able to compete with even some of the best higher MP phones on the market. This is a good move by Apple because Samsung has shown it has made improvements with this years batch of cameras and if Apple remained the same, they would most certainly be left behind.

Apple is also upgrading the front facing camera and possibly adding a screen flash similar to OS X on Mac. Instead of an actual LED flash in the front the front screen will go white and flash, giving some subtle lighting to your selfies. It should be interesting to see if these rumors do hold up on September 9th.  Be prepared for Apple to present 4K video and 12MP photos as something innovative and new as the company knows how to market themselves well.
