Back in November, Apple pundit John Gruber said that the next generation iPhone – likely to be called ‘iPhone 6s’ – is going to be “the biggest camera jump ever” and now Asian supply chain sources of UDN claims that Apple is planning to use dual lens design with optical zoom for its iPhone 6s alongside Force Touch technology.
According to the report, the next generation iPhone 6s is going to feature a dual-lens camera with optical zoom capabilities, a departure from digital zooming found in all iPhone models to date. Moreover, Apple is also looking to increase the size of the sensor to allow more light to enter into them, which will help in greater image quality even in low light conditions.
The report also says that iPhone 6s will feature three-dimensional touch sensor that the Apple Watch uses to sense the difference between a tap and a press. The three-dimensional touch sensor will be sourced from TPK ad will bring Force Touch feature to the device. The technology allows a device to distinguish between touches made by the user depending on the pressure applied on the screen. Apple is said to use these sensor to measure heart rate and blood pressure of iPhone users, though this seems a bit too far fetched.
Camera is one of the most important battlefront for today’s flagship smartphones, and Apple is the one winning on this front. Apple’s iPhone is known for its superior image quality and camera experience over its competitors. Since the dual lens solutions has already been available in the market, it is very much likely that Apple uses similar lens technology to further improve the image quality of its smartphones.
Report also says that the iPhone 6s will retain the form factor and design of 2014’s iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, with lowest storage capacity starting from 32GB, an increase from 16GB found in the current generation iPhone models.
Do you expect Apple to debut Force Touch technology into its next generation iPhone? and what other features would you like to see in iPhone 6s?
