iPhone 6S getting a 10MP camera from Sony

Apple iPhone 6Apple has been stubbornly equipping every iPhone from 2011 with an 8MP imaging sensor, while admittedly upgrading the optics every once in a while. However, as we step into 2015 a new rumor says the iPhone’s camera module is finally packing on some extra light-sensitive pixels.

We’ve talked about this new specs leak from Taiwan already, but the alleged camera upgrade deserves special attention, hence this extra post. According to sources cited by TechNews Taiwan, Apple is equipping the upcoming iPhone 6S with a 10 megapixel CMOS imaging sensor. That’s a total of 10 million tiny image sensors. Their cumulated light-sensing abilities converge into a single, crisp image resolved by the phone’s software.

A second source reportedly speculated that Apple could even adopt a 20MP imaging sensor from Sony, but the claim seems a bit farfetched. Apple is conservatory regarding major hardware upgrades like these. Chances are the company will couple the 2MP jump with the usual round of optics enhancements.

A previous rumor said that Apple would use not one but two lenses for the iPhone’s rear camera in order to enable optical zoom (an important upgrade from the digital zoom capabilities currently found in Apple’s phones). These facts are not confirmed, but do seem very plausible for an iPhone S-upgrade.
