Next Generation iPhone to Feature 12MP Camera With Smaller Pixel Size?

Apple has used an 8-megapixel camera in its iPhone since the 4s, but despite initial reports, the next generation 'iPhone 6s' could be the first iPhone to pack a 12-megapixel camera.

According to IHS analyst Kevin Wang, this year's iPhone 6s will feature a higher 12-megapixel camera, corroborating well-informed KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Wang claims that while the iPhone 6s will feature a 12MP camera, the pixel size will be smaller.

In general, the larger the pixels, the better low-light pictures you can take. Of course, there are many more factors that go in to play when taking a picture (sensor size, image processing, etc), so Apple could always mitigate the impact of smaller pixels with other improved internal components.

Notably, Daring Fireball's John Gruber suggested the next generation iPhone could feature the 'biggest camera jump ever' featuring a two-lens system.

The iPhone 6s is expected retain the design and chassis of the current iPhone 6. The device will mostly featured improved internal components, including Apple's force touch technology as well as an improved processor with 2GB of RAM. Apple will likely announce and release the device sometime next fall.

Exactly, @Curious!!! Why do these android fanboy trolls come here and do this? Do you see Apple users on Android sites trolling the crap out of them? Well honestly, IDK, cause ive never been to one of those sites. I have no need to. I prefer Apple. But I'm sure there aren't because anyone smart enough to prefer Apple over Android garbage has much better things to do than troll a stupid android site. WE JUST DONT CARE ABOUT YOUR PLASTIC GARBAGE!!!

I could care less about a camera upgrade or internals at this point. I want a better screen. The glass on the 6 is just way to fragile at this point and is pretty much my only but very huge complaint I have on mine. The camera on it in video mode still amazes me at the jump it made from my 5s. Pictures are pretty much the same to me.
