'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. :-)

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.
