It is being reported that the much-awaited smartphone of Apple, iPhone 6, is likely to be launched with electronic image stabilization (EIS) instead of optical image stabilization (OIS) for its high-end camera. The smartphone would also be having increased pixel size in order to achieve a superior camera performance.This has been revealed by an EIS China analyst Sun Chang Xu, who posted them on Weibo (via GforGames).
Xu has said that the next-generation Apple smartphone will be equipped with a larger pixel size of 1.75 um, a significant increase compared to the 1.5 um pixel size of the current iPhone 5S’s camera. This would enable the camera to absorb more light and produce a higher image quality.
Meanwhile, recent reports by Japanese publication Mac Otakara have showed that the Apple’s next-generation flagship smartphone would be equipped with rounded edges and a cover glass, unlike the straight edges seen on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5S models.
Apple is scheduled to release two versions of iPhone 6 this year, with one having a 4.7-inch display and the other boasting a 5.5- or 5.7-inch screen. The latest information suggests that the company is due to start the production of the 4.7-inch model in July, with the commercial launch due in September. Meanwhile, the manufacturing of the bigger version would start sometime in September. This shows that the two versions will not hit the market at the same time.
The smartphone is likely to be equipped with Apple’s next OS version, iOS 8, and it would be more scratch resistant as compared to the screens of the current iPhones. The smartphone is also expected to sport several other features, including 64-bit mobile processor, a clock speed of 2.6GHz and improved RAM.
Meanwhile, some recent reports have claimed that the company is looking for a USD100 price increase for the upcoming smartphone.
