Apple did not go the way of competing manufacturers and will not increase the resolution of the camera in the new smartphone. This is reported by foreign media , citing sources in Cupertino familiar with the situation .
Most likely , Apple will retain the same number of megapixels, but will focus on a subject. Phone called iPhone 6 in the press , like his predecessors from iPhone 4s, will be equipped with a camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels .
Apple never chased megapixels in their smartphones . Released in 2007, the first iPhone had a 2- megapixel sensor , while Nokia had already sold phones with 5 megapixels . To equip the iPhone 4 sensor with the same resolution , Apple took three years . The current top-end gadget has an 8- megapixel camera, while the advanced Android- flagships – 13 megapixels and above.
Nevertheless , the quality of shooting iPhone 5s remains one of the highest. Can compete with him except that camera phones from the same Lumia Nokia. Apple plans to achieve the best results are not due to a larger number of pixels and the larger sensors and pixels, dual flash , advanced image processing algorithms .
The new flagship , is rumored to be improved and implemented focusing optical image stabilization technology . Methods for introduction of these technologies are described in the application, which was recently published on the website of the Bureau of Patents and U.S. brands . In particular , a California corporation is going to use a voice coil actuator to move the camera lens in different directions around the optical axis .
On the timing of commercialization of technologies in the patent does not say anything . We only know that on the new system, Apple has worked since 2012 . Most likely, the optical stabilization appears in the iPhone 6.
