iPhone 6s Leak: Improved FaceTime Camera, Same Memory Configurations As Current Model


In a note to investors, a renowned analyst claims that the upcoming flagship from Apple, the iPhone 6s, will come with a 5-megapixel front facing camera and will also retain the same memory configuration options as the current model.


A 5-Megapixel FaceTime Camera, Same Memory Configurations. Don't Be Bummed Out Just Yet.

According to the note by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 6s will come in same memory configurations as the current model - 16, 64 and 128GB. This means that the rumored 32GB base model won't be making the cut, and the device will start at 16GB once again, as noted in another report by a different source.

Apart from the memory configuration bit, Kuo also claims that the iPhone 6s will feature a new and improved 5-megapixel front facing FaceTime camera, which will, obviously, take better photos than what is available on the iPhone 6 right now. Moving on, Kuo also reaffirms that the iPhone 6s will indeed come packed with a Force Touch display, a new rose gold color option and an upgraded Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

Kuo also suggests that the iPhone 6s might not have a sapphire crystal rear-facing camera lens this time around. This move sounds rather odd, but we'll see for ourselves in the coming days if that's true or not.

According to Kuo, the iPhone 6s went into mass production in August, and the delay was caused due to bottlenecks regarding Force Touch, the device's casing and the vibrating motor.

We expect the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to retain the same pricing structure as the iPhone 6, and won't see a cost hike. After all, Apple hasn't done such a thing before, and probably won't do it this time either.

iPhone 6S to feature upgraded NFC Chip and 16 GB storage

The iPhone 6s and its bigger brother the iPhone 6s Plus are due for announcement at a special media event on the 9th of September, the invites for which have already been sent out to the press. The Cupertino giant is expected to unveil a brand new Apple TV 4 at the keynote, apart from the iPhone 6s of course, and if rumors are to be believed, then the company might go an extra mile and treat us with the announcement of the iPad Pro and iPad mini 4 as well, both of which will be available to buy in November time.

The entire event will be live streamed, and as ever, we'll be covering the announcements from start to finish, including the software bit, such as iOS 9, OS X El Capitan and watchOS 2.
