According to Daring Fireball‘s John Gruber, camera may become the major asset of the next iPhone in what he calls the smartphone’s “biggest camera jump ever.”
In the latest episode of his podcast The Talk Show, he claims to have heard “from a birdie of a birdie” that the Cupertino giant is preparing serious improvements in the camera of the iPhone.
“The specific thing I heard is that next year’s camera might be the biggest camera jump ever,” Gruber said. “I don’t even know what sense this makes, but I’ve heard that it’s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery.”
This upgrade would be a two-lens system on the rear camera capable of capturing DSLR quality shots.
The iPhone 6 is currently equipped with an 8 megapixel iSight camera with auto focus an aperture of f/2.2, better autofocus and a True-Tone flash feature,.
Gruber has been a reliable Apple source in the past, which makes this announcement more credible.
