Apple iPhone 6s leaked doc reveals 12MP camera that can record 4K video

The Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus might not feature the fancy dual-lens camera technology that is rumored to bring a huge improvement in image quality, but the camera upgrade the two phones will come with will undoubtedly be significant: a new, 12-megapixel sensor with 4K video recording and 240fps slow-motion capabilities, according to a document leaked by an alleged Foxconn employee.

The original post of the document has been pulled, but - by the web's unwritten laws - nothing can ever get completely lost in the vast space of the web, and the schematics and leaked document have survived.

The documents mention internal model number N66 for the iPhone 6s and N71 for the iPhone 6s Plus, and states that both will pack the new 12-megapixel sensor. The two are also expected to finally get a long-due upgrade to 2GB of RAM. Interestingly, this rumor also lists a 5-megapixel front camera on both, and that would be quite the jump from the current 1.2-megapixel selfie shooter.

The iPhone 6s family is said to get a 12MP camera with 4K video recording

The iPhone 6s family puzzle has started revealing itself quickly in just the last couple of days when we saw the first images showing the external housing of the new iPhone, which basically confirmed that Apple will not make any cosmetic changes to the beautiful aluminum body of the phone. Rumors persist that the only novelty in the visual style of the iPhone 6s series will be an additional rose gold/pink color option. Some changes are also due on the inside where the chips are expected to be laid out differently, as Apple is expected to use a smaller system-on-a-chip, possibly leaving spare space for a larger battery.

Just yesterday, we learned that the new iPhones will also use new Category 6 4G LTE modems of the Qualcomm '9X35' Gobi kind. The new modems will allow theoretical peak speeds of 300Mbps on the downlink on LTE, double the previous maximum of 150Mbps.

The only rumor that has been circulating for months on end - and still is - mentions that Apple will adopt 'Force Touch' functionality in the new iPhones, and that could be the big software highlight of the gadget. Force Touch was first introduced on the Apple Watch, and then on the new Macbook, and it allows you to apply more pressure to your taps to differentiate between a regular, 'light' tap and a 'force' touch.

The iPhone 6s family has allegedly already gone into early production in China, with a ramp-up to volume production expected to start in the near future.

In the Android world, it will still be midrange.

Too bad for you the 90% of the planet doesn't care about octa core and 55gb of ram. As long as the camera is great, screen looks great and is super fast its gonna sell like hot cakes. Cause none of the androids world specs matter to iOS. The cpu cores, the gigabytes of ram, the mega pixels, they don't matter much. An 8mp iphone 6 beat the shit out of any phone when it came in 2014 even then 20mp beasts and what so ever.

no that's not it. too bad for you that the world does care and your favorite fruity-pebble company can't deliver on the standards set by today's industry.

Also needless to point out that Apple cutting corners once again with just a 12mp camera but hey they are still gonna charge that premium price and rip off thier customers even more. where the Apple is Red the sheep will flock :)

As i said too bad for you

Why not just enjoy what you have, and let others enjoy theirs. That rant won't change anything.

sorry to break this to you, but apple is nothing in terms of numbers of devices sold, absolutely, nothing.
Worldwide, IOS has dropped from 23% of the market in Q3 2012 to 18% in Q1 2015, with android going from 59% to 78% in the same time period.
Source: IDC:http://www.idc.com/prodserv/smartphone-os-market-share.jsp
Android offers a much much bigger variety, and smart devices are more then just one kind of model, not everyone needs or wants a high end phone, they do not see it justifying the price, and apple has crippled itself in that department, if someone doesn't feel an iphone justifies its price, they will get something else, most likely an android phone.
Apple offers no low/mid end devices, it had the color but it was hilariously weak.

So when you say not everything is 'specs' you are correct, but doesn't aid ios actually works against ios, I know a lot of people who don't need a high end phone, because they do not need it play games or such, it just needs to be able to handle some things and stream music maybe snap a few fair pictures, and many many quite reasonably priced android devices can do this easily.

Well 55% of them in the US do because Samsung sold mostly flagships here and has a lead.

They dont care what is under the hood, they care what they can see above.

Those Android do far more for the buck and sales show that too.

Surprising if they won't offer many specs bump over the 6 & 6 plus, they should add 2 gig of ram on 6 (why only available on iPad air 2?). Higher megapixels camera would be good, i wanna know how fans will react since i believe they said it's not necessary.

Higher megapixels camera isnt necessary.. IPhone camera is still called one of the best Smart phone camera you can get by both Android and IOS commentators, The IPhone camera might not be as sharp as other camera's but it can still easily compete against any phone on the most beautiful photo taken.

As i said last year, it would be nice if the megapixels was bumped but all you will see is an increase in sharpness when cropping.. its nice, not necessary.

I wouldn't call iPhone camera and overall performance mediocre, it's good - it can compete with most of Android flagship but i think fans would appreciate higher specs in this case higher megapixels camera. The reason why i made this comment cause some fans still deny what others manufacturer offers as a gimmick, at least you admited it was nice...

Have you or any other iphone user EVER had issue with 1gb of ram? I dont think so. You can multi task with 20apps and games without a single issue. RAM isn't an issue on iphone especially with the resolution it has. Also the 12mp is a bump only to add 4K video recording as if I remember well you need at least 8.7mp? to add 4K. And I dont think they want to add 10mp as it might seem like a small upgrade. So 12 should be great. I don't care even if it had 8mp as long as they could improve the already amazing iphone 6 camera.

Well actually megapixels have really less effect on the pictures that phones like S6 and G4 take it offers no actual quality improvement in pics only more zooming, although lumia pureview phones are an exception.

Useless.. Few computers, TVs etc support 4k.. 4K videos take up way too much space to make the use of them practical, and 4K tvs and computers are out of the prince range of most costumers.

Its a gimmick and its sad to see Apple adopting it so early.

I think quite the opposite the price of phone would be the same more specs the better product for consumer you really saying that you don't want 3gigs of ram on your phone it's not really necessary but it's not a can like Qhd with effect the battery and the performance.
If it's an overall advantage it's welcome.

4K is a gimmick only to uninformed consumers like you. 4K = high bit rate recording, downscale to 1080p and you have yourself a much more useful video to play around with.

Also resolution has almost nothing to do with file sizes, 4K recordings on mobile phones are so low bitrate compared to real cameras that 15 minutes is only about 1gb in size, hardly "way too much space" as you put it.
