New iPhone 6s Camera Rumors

We are coming across numerous rumors regarding the Apple iPhone 6s and one such rumor is about the iPhone 6S camera. A Chinese news website states that the Apple iPhone 6s will be making the shift to an RGBW sensor from the conventional RGB sensor. The iPhone 6S camera is reported to be a 12 MP unit provided by Sony.

The RGBW sensor is expected to aid the iPhone’s low light performance by reducing the overall noise of the image under high ISO. It has also been stated to improve the previous fast focusing times. This could be the result of a better phase detection system than the one found in the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus so far. There has been no word about the presence of an optical image stabilization system coupled to the iPhone 6S camera.

However, from our past experiences we can assume that Apple will equip its iPhone 6S series with nothing short of market leading technology. The 12 MP camera also means that the Apple iPhone 6s will be able to record videos in 4K at 30 fps (Ultra high definition) which was earlier not possible due to the limitations of the sensor.

The earlier sensor was only capable of 8 megapixels whereas the bare minimum to record a 4K footage is 8.3 megapixels. This new rumor also throws the dual camera speculation out of the window. The iPhone 6S camera will be a single unit.

All these are only speculations at this point of time. Apple may choose to provide us something entirely different when the actual information is unveiled.
