iPhone 6 to feature 13-megapixel camera?

The iPhone 6 could feature a 13-megapixel camera thanks to a new Sony sensor.

Rumours on the exact specs for the iPhone 6 have been fairly sparse, but a fresh report has given us insight as to what camera sensor Apple might use.

According to a Chinese publication who cites sources claiming to have a “great track record”, the iPhone 6 will feature a 13-megapixel Sony Exmor IMX220 sensor.

This new Sony camera offers a 13-megapixel resolution, 1/2.3-inch sensor and can record full 1080p HD videos.

Apple already uses Sony sensors for the rear cameras in its iPhone range. The iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S use Sony Exmor sensors, with the latter two making use of the Exmor IMX145 unit.

Previous reports have suggested that the iPhone 6 could feature a new Sony sensor, so this enhanced sensor could be a possibility.

Earlier rumours suggested the iPhone 6 camera may retain the same 8-megapixel resolution, or perhaps just up to 10-megapixels, but Apple could add optical image stabilisation and an enhanced HDR mode to the iPhone 6.

Other iPhone 6 features are rumoured to include a crystal sapphire display for improved scratch and crack resilience and an increased screen size of 4.7-inches.

Apple is also predicted to launch a second, larger screened version of the iPhone 6, reportedly with a 5.5-inch panel.

The overall design is supposed to be a lot thinner than the current iPhone 5S flagship, potentially slimming down the profile to a lean 6mm.

Although it will retain the aluminium body that is synonymous with the latest iPhones (apart from the iPhone 5C), but have much more rounded edges than the diamond cut iPhone 5 and 5S.
