According to the latest rumors, the successor to Apple iPhone 5 may be launched around September this year. However, this is not the most important part of the news delivered today by Wonderful Saigon Electrics. The company, which provides camera modules for Apple, claims that the iPhone 5S will feature a 12-megapixel camera. The camera will reportedly work better in low-light conditions and will be able of capturing better quality photos at night.
iPhone 5S to come with improved camera
Why we think there may be some truth in the news? First, because it would be unusual for Apple not to improve the camera in its next “S” models of the iPhone. As you probably remember, the iPhone 4 featured a 5-megapixel camera, while the unit in the iPhone 4S was 8-megapixel. Other specs were also bumped up, so you can expect the next iteration of iPhone to sport upgraded hardware.
Secondly, the news comes via Vietnamese blog Tinhte.vn, which has a history of accurate reports about Apple devices. For example, the site was correct about the EarPods, and a new camera for the iPhone 5S. Of source, neither the source’s credibility nor Apple’s inclination towards upgrades make a 12-megapixel camera in the iPhone 5S a fact. Undoubtedly, it would be a welcome improvement, but for the time being the news is still classified as a rumor. Hope for the best but also keep your excitement at bay.
