iPhone 6 could feature 10MP camera with improved filter

The latest iPhone 6 rumour reveals the 2014 flagship could come with a 10-megapixel rear camera featuring an improved filter.

According to a Chinese website, the iPhone 6 will feature a slight camera upgrade over the iPhone 5S, bumping the sensor to 10-megapixels.

The Taiwanese supply chain insider sources suggest the iPhone 6 will offer at least 10-megapixels with an f/1.8 aperture.

Apparently, this improved camera will also come with interchangeable resin lenses created by a Japanese company called JSR.

The company has developed a new resin called ARTON, which offers impressive qualities like high heat resistance and is already used in video and digital CMOS camera sensors. ARTON resins are also lighter and thinner than regular IR filters.  

The iPhone 6 could also use the ARTON resins’ ability to minimise the colour shift incurred by CMOS sensors.

Previous rumours suggested the iPhone 6 would retain the 8-megapixel sensor of the iPhone 5S and focus more heavily on other areas of improvements.

Apple’s next flagship is tipped to feature a 4.7-inch display and launch alongside the Apple Watch later this year.

It should run iOS 8, which is rumoured to heavily focus on healthcare and fitness tracking to tie-in with the iWatch launch.

Earlier this month, “sources briefed on the plans” suggested iOS 8 will come with a new fitness and healthcare app called HealthBook.

HealthBook will reportedly be able to monitor and store fitness and health data like calories burnt, steps taken, miles walked, blood pressure, heart rate and medication alerts.

The iPhone 6 is also expected to build upon the Touch ID fingerprint sensor technology and potentially a sapphire glass display.
