A sketchy and unconfirmed internal document posted by an alleged Foxconn employee on Chinese microblogging website Weibo (via PhoneArena) corroborates rumors that the next-generation iPhone could feature a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with 4K video recording and 240 FPS slow-motion capabilities.


Weibo user KJuma has since removed the pair of leaked documents he shared on the Twitter-like service, but not before the images began making their rounds on the web. The documents also corroborate multiple rumors claiming the so-called iPhone 6s ("N66") and iPhone 6s Plus ("N71") will have 2GB of RAM.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a respectable track record at reporting on Apple's upcoming product plans, issued a note to investors in May with eleven predictions for the next iPhone, and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera sensor and A9 processor with 2GB of RAM were among the new features he listed.

What gets me with 4K camera's is that most screens cannot show 4K as there is too many pixels - if its for zoom, would it be better to improve the zoom features on the camera itself also?

So from the Chinese text, there's a new pink colour but not quite rose gold. Did I read that right? Something about taking pictures while also recording movies?

But the most impressive thing is the accuracy (just a touch from a finger tip) and even faster Touch ID performance, up to 30% faster than the 6, which is about the same as the Galaxy S6 (where the Samsung is not as consistently accurate).

Wow, 4k recording. Sounds like a great option - but Apple, please make 1080p recording an easily set (not buried) option...I don't want my storage eaten away by 4k home movies. As to the sensor pixel numbers, I'd rather have the large pixels for better low light performance (just as DSLR's do), than more pixels on the minute sensor, although maybe they needed more pixels to support 4k recording well.

About time! Of course there are the stubborn folks who want apple to stick to 8 mp forever because they think megapixels don't matter.

But iPhone 6s base storage should start at 32gb with 2gb ram if this is true. More megapixels means larger photo size. Unless they add an option like on galaxy phones where you can downgrade the photo quality so it takes up less space.

2GB RAM. I have a 6, but the 6S is sounding like a massive upgrade (already) from that. Might have to change that two-year cycle I've been doing.

I got started with iPhones on the tail end of a 2-year cycle but never really tried to jigger the timeline to get back "in sync". Most of the time, the "S" updates provide the majority of internal improvements the next generation will have but in a form factor that's well established, making getting accessories easy (and fairly cheap). Every once in a while i"ll miss out on a new major feature (e.g., Apple Pay not available on the 5S without the Watch), but on a 2-year cycle, it's not too long before I'll get it anyway.

I love reading all the love for 4k and 12mp when the competition has been doing it for years and now all of a sudden its a new holy coming when apple finally does it.

I also read the 6s is getting the same modem the gs5 had lol all the hate when competition had it and nothing but love when apple finally catches up.

last hope -please bring iphone 6s black or slate back color

grey- silver look suck
yeah that slate was really sexy. But apple needs to figure how to coat the black aluminum better. My iPhone 5 had a ton of scratches and I only owned it for two weeks.

They were always saying samsung and other phone makers were adding useless features and that there was no need for such high quality photos and videos. But like you said once apple does it it's like the best thing since sliced bread. Sometimes I feel like folks on this forum have short term memory problems.
