The upcoming iPhone 6S seems to be one of the most popular subjects lately. Even though just a few months passed since Apple released their latest smartphone duo, the rumor mill is very active and each week we find out something new about the handset scheduled for this fall.
Photography taken to a new level
According to Apple Insider, Apple has recently applied for a camera-related patent, which could improve the snapshot-taking abilities of their devices, which are already top notch. Apparently, the iPhone 6S could feature a camera with advanced zoom lens and a new optical image stabilization system, based on a magnet.
The single images sensor will be able to register light from two different sources, meaning that the same unit could work as a rear and front-facing camera in the same time. Of course, the biggest advantage using this kind of sensor would be that it will require less space, meaning that the next Apple smartphone will be thinner and won’t have a protruding camera.
No more bumps on the back
As you probably know, this has been considered a design flaw from the very first days after the launch event was consumed, as the iSight camera used on the iPhone 6 is pretty big, compared to the phone’s overall design. Thus, an iPhone 6S with a perfectly flat back would be really nice, in terms of design.
Also, since the phone will use basically the same sensor, the quality of the shots taken with the rear and the front facing cameras will be the same. Yep, FaceTime will be taken to a whole new level on the iPhone 6S!
Any first thoughts on this? Do you think Apple will optimize this technology on time, in order to use it on their upcoming handset?
