The iPhone 8 may shoot 60 FPS 4K video with both the front and rear cameras
In today's installment of the HomePod firmware that keeps on revealing potential features of the upcoming Apple crop, a real gem has been discovered in the code, namely that the iPhone 8 may shoot 60fps 4K video, and could be able to do 4K footage with the front camera as well. Besides listing 4K 60fps video, the code also attaches a "front" or "back" identifier at each line, hinting that the ability may be extended to the front selfie snapper as well.

Given the potential characteristics of the new 10nm Apple A11 chipset, we've no doubt that the processing power will be there, and Appleā€™s move to the HEVC file type will apparently be used, eventually shrinking 4K video file sizes to half of what we have now on the iPhones that do 4K at 30fps. The higher frame count would help with the rumored focus on AR in the iPhone 8 by simply having more of the footage to work with, and tracking enhancements.
