According to Taipei Times (via GforGames), analyst Jeff Pu of Yuanta Securities Investment Consulting Co. believes the 8 megapixel sensor on the future iPhone will remain the same, but that Apple will use more powerful components inside.
The analyst expects Apple’s iPhone 6s camera to go through a structural development instead.
The company would rather focus on features including the size of the pixels, autofocus or the optics, instead of increasing the number of megapixels.
An 8 MP camera would make the iPhone 6s an exception on a market full of mostly high-end smartphones with 10 MP cameras.
Reports circulated in November claiming that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus would have the “biggest camera jump ever” in Apple’s history.
