Apple’s rumoured new iPhone the iPhone 5S will feature a 12-megapixel camera, according to a report. The Vietnamese site Tinhte claims that the Cupertino firm is upping the smartphone’s camera capabilities by 4 megapixels.
The jump from 8 to 12 megapixels would have implications for how large images can be printed and cropped, as well as how much space they take up on the handset.
Tinhte has a strong track record of obtaining inside Apple information, having obtained the iPhone 4 before it was officially announced, outed the 64GB iPhone and leaked the iPhone 5’s earpods.
Japanese blog Macotakara recently claimed that the Cupertino firm is planning to offer the seventh-generation handset in a similar array of colours to its iPod Touch line.
The website also stated that the iPhone 5S will bear a similar design to the current-generation iPhone 5, with an improved camera and processor, as well as fingerprint recognition technology.
Apple is also strongly rumoured to be launching a budget iPhone alongside the flagship model, with previous reports indicating that this could also be available in a variety of colours.
