iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus just launched and it seems Apple isn’t slowing down. Rumor has it that the company is already working hard on the next generation of the iPhone family. Usually Apple keeps the designs of predecessors and improves certain aspects of the smartphone in the next generation. It has however, been having the same 8 megapixel main camera since iPhone 3. I think hence, it might just be time for the tech giant to give Apple users a much needed upgrade camera wise.
John Gruber who is known for having reliable early insight on Apple’s plans has speculated that the next generation iPhone might see the “biggest jump ever” when it comes to upgrades to the camera. Apple is working on integrating a two-lens system that would enable an iPhone to generate DSLR quality photos. Could this be similar to HTC One M8’s camera? But that would require some form of hardware modifications to occur.
Apple might have just included the protruding lens that everybody has been complaining about on the iPhone 6 to make way for these tweaks to the hardware come the next generation iPhone. That makes sense. However, if Apple chooses to use the dual lens system, it might need to give up the optical image stabilization for the setup. This is exactly what HTC had to do with the One M8.
Apple has yet to comment on the speculations. What do you think about the camera bump? It is however, a year away before we see a new iPhone even emerge so it might be too early to set these rumors in stone.
