New iPhone 6S to Feature 12MP Photos, Better Front-Facing Camera

New reports from 9to5Mac reveal that the new iPhone 6S will feature much improved cameras – with the back camera taking 12 megapixel photos instead of 8 megapixels (the standard for a while) and larger sensors on the front-facing camera suggests higher pixel count from the current 1.2 megapixels. 9to5Mac also provided leaked photos and video compare the purported iPhone 6S with the current iPhone 6.

While larger megapixels don’t mean much in the improvement of photo resolution, it may mean that Apple is making the iPhone 6S capable of shooting 4K high-definition video. This also means that the back camera on the upcoming iPhone 6S will continue to protrude (stop complaining about the little bump – you get access to higher quality tools). According to the reports from 9to5Mac, Apple will also add a front-facing LED flash to the upcoming iPhones and also enable front-facing panorama shots and slow motion video in 720P.

The launch of the initial iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus brought with it many exciting upgraded tools for iPhone photographers and videographers. With higher-quality photos and much more advanced video tools, iPhone 6 users became exposed to several features that enabled them to rely on just their phone for documentation. These new reports on the upcoming Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus is definitely welcome news for Apple lovers, as they’ve had to envy the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S5, which has been capable of 4K video recording since it launched in early 2014.
