Many people were disappointed that the camera on the iPhone 5 and 5s had a sensor with only 8 megapixels. In a market where there are mobile phone cameras with up to 42 megapixels, I hardly knew that Apple’s smartphones only had 8.
Although Apple did not increase the number of megapixels in the camera, what did increase was the quality of the components in the camera, so that the photos taken would be of better quality. The company proved that it was not necessary to increase the number of megapixels to improve the actual quality of the camera.
Now there are conflicting rumors about the camera Apple might mount on its next smartphone. Many rumors have been saying for a long time that at least the sensor will have two digits and that it would be about 12 or 13 megapixels. Now, a new source says no, that the company will continue with the 8 megapixel sensor and that it will improve other aspects of the camera on iPhone 6.
Some say that the iPhone 6 camera won’t have any more megapixels, and others that it will
It is already known that when we refer to the rumors about the next Apple devices, there are some that contradict each other . Well, this is what happens with the camera of the next iPhone6. There are two reports from China in which one states that the camera will have more megapixels, and another that it will not.
The report that says it will have more megapixels, states that this one will have 10 megapixels , 2 more than its predecessor, the iPhone 5s. The other report, on the other hand, states that the camera would keep the 8 megapixels but with other improved features.
A better 8-megapixel camera than the iPhone 5s
Although the second report states that the camera of the iPhone 6 will be 8 megapixels, it claims that will have better features than the camera of the 5s .
According to this report, the iPhone 6 camera will have a 12.66″ sensor, and an f2.0 aperture, instead of a 13″ sensor and an f2.2 aperture which is the one mounted on the iPhone 5s. It seems that Sony will be in charge of the CMOS sensor of the main camera , which will be joined to the other camera components manufactured by LG and Sharp.
With this information it is clear that Apple is continuously looking for the best cameras for its smartphones and instead of getting into a megapixel war as other manufacturers do, it is concerned with improving other important aspects of the cameras that ensure better photos, as we can read in BGR.
