Tinhte.vn a Vietnamese site that has been reliable in the past with Apple iPhone rumors has mentioned that the new iPhone 5S will come with a 12 megapixel sensor, better low light shooting capabilities as well has HDR shooting and ‘other features’. The information coming out right now is still very scant, but I would well imagine that the sensor will be increased and as well as that a lower aperture for improved low light conditions is quite likely too.
If you recall, when the iPhone 4S was announced back in October 2011, the rear camera was increased from 5 megapixels to 8, with improved video capture of 1080p, from 720p, as well as a ‘lighter’ lens from f/2.8 to f/2.4.
When the iPhone 5 came out the main ‘focus’ was on better low light performance and a shift of up to 40% faster image capture speed, as well as a new sapphire lens for improved clarity but it kept the 8 MP camera and f/2.4 aperture.
We’ll be reporting on any new rumors that come out regarding the iPhone 5S, so keep checking back for those, hopefully we won’t have too long to wait until we can get to grips with the real thing.
