IHS Confirms iPhone 6s Camera to Feature 12MP, But With Smaller Pixels
Earlier this week, there was a report of an industry analyst predicting Apple to increase the MegaPixel count for its camera with the release of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models.
Today, there’s another report by a different source which also claims that Apple is on track to up the quality of its mobile cameras.
Kevin Wang, IHS Technology Research Director, has pretty much “confirmed” that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus variants will feature 12MP. The catch, though, is that the pixel size will be smaller.
If the rumors are true and Apple does go along this path, users with interest in photography would have to choose between either an 8MP camera with bigger pixels or a 12MP unit with smaller pixels.
Since the launch of the iPhone 4S in 2011, Apple has stuck to using 8MP cameras for all of its iPhone models. While the picture quality is still high, consumers have been putting the company under pressure to offer a higher MP count. This also is one of the sole reasons of the countless forum debates of whether a higher MP count does indeed mean better quality photos.
