A published report from France on Thursday, reveals what is alleged to be a change in the camera component found on the motherboard of the next iteration of the Apple iPhone. Looking at this component side by side with the one used on the Apple iPhone 5
certainly reveals a different look. With the accolades that the camera on the Nokia Lumia 920
has received, and with the camera on the Nokia Lumia 928 showing the ability to capture extremely stable video
, the crew in Cupertino might have felt compelled to tinker with the camera on the Apple iPhone, which is considered one of the better smartphone snappers.
The picture of the new camera component came from Japanese retailer Japanese retailer Moumantai and if it is not from the Apple iPhone 5S
, or Apple iPhone 6 if a listing from Vodafone's online inventory is correct
, it could be a component from the rumored low-cost
Apple iPhone. That also would explain the different looking component since we wouldn't expect Apple to be shelling out to provide its low-end model with the same optics found on its pricier hardware.
