iPhone OS 4 Beta SDK hints at 720p video recording capabilities
Apple iPhone users already have many reasons to long for that moment when they will be getting iPhone OS 4 on their handsets. Just recently we learned there's a chance to see some new iPod controls and a screen orientation lock neatly placed in the multitasking dock, and now the latest rumors hint at the possibility of getting 720p HD video recording, however, most probably on the upcoming iPhone model only. Software devs seem to have found the variables "AVCaptureSessionPreset640x480" and "AVCaptureSessionPreset1280x720" buried somewhere deep in the iPhone OS 4 Beta SDK. Now, of course this fits well with the speculations of a 5MP camera being used in the next-gen iPhone, which recently got revealed.

The addition of 1280x720 pixels video capture will surely be well-received by users, as the current VGA resolution recording is now a bit dated, and having 720p rec on your phone is all the rage right now.
