'iPhone 6s' Again Rumored to Feature 12MP Camera With 4K Video Recording

A sketchy and unconfirmed internal document posted by an alleged Foxconn employee on Chinese microblogging website Weibo (via PhoneArena) corroborates rumors that the next-generation iPhone could feature a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with 4K video recording and 240 FPS slow-motion capabilities.

Weibo iPhone 6s Documents
Weibo user KJuma has since removed the pair of leaked documents he shared on the Twitter-like service, but not before the images began making their rounds on the web. The documents also corroborate multiple rumors claiming the so-called iPhone 6s ("N66") and iPhone 6s Plus ("N71") will have 2GB of RAM.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a respectable track record at reporting on Apple's upcoming product plans, issued a note to investors in May with eleven predictions for the next iPhone, and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera sensor and A9 processor with 2GB of RAM were among the new features he listed.

Probably now an "ex-Foxconn employee".

Not a smart move.

Yeah, but when Apple finally does something, it's so much better & more refined then the early adopters. I don't know about you, but I much prefer a company that does it right, then one who rushes to be the first but gets it wrong. :-)

8MP is enough they said. Bigger pixels = better pictures they said.

I hope the 4K toggle is in the camera app itself and not buried in settings like the 60 FPS toggle. 4K recording would be nice to have but it is just going to eat up device and iCloud storage.

All of you Android geeks will never figure out how Apple does things...

Apple didn't release 3G or LTE when everyone else did. Why? Timing. The networks weren't even really built out, and the chipsets were too power hungry.

Apple doesn't do a lot of things until later for obvious reasons: Apple isn't a spec whore like the Android community; Apple waits until they can do something better with a technology before they implement it; Apple typically refines a use or uses for a technology to make it more usable and reliable.

None of that matters to a bunch of spec whores, though.

Android: all about the specs, even if they don't combine to make a great user experience.


All you apple geeks will never figure out how apple does things.

Apple doesn't do a lot of things until later for obvious reasons: profit. Apple isn't a spec whore since the less material apple users, the quicker products become obsolete (ipad 3, iPad air, iphone 6+, the new macbook, etc) Apple waits until they can do something and then calls it the discovery of the century (Apple pay, 4 inch display, 4.7 inch display, 5.5 inch full hd resolution, slow mo, customisable keyboards etc).

It's easy to generalise smh

They were always saying samsung and other phone makers were adding useless features and that there was no need for such high quality photos and videos. But like you said once apple does it it's like the best thing since sliced bread. Sometimes I feel like folks on this forum have short term memory problems.
