Apple’s supply chain is reportedly revealing further information about the iPhone 6s, stating that it will have a dual-lens camera with optical zoom and a 3D pressure sensor.
The report comes courtesy of Taiwanese media who have heard from supply-chain sources. A dual-lens camera would offer greater image quality, by allowing more light to reach the sensor, while its optical zoom features would offer greater image quality than digital zoom.
The iPhone 6s is also rumoured to have a 3D pressure sensor. This will utilise Apple’s Force Touch technology, which it is using in the upcoming Apple Watch. The technology ensures that your touchscreen can distinguish between light taps and deep presses. This may in turn allow for more complex contextual menus and controls.
The latest leaks suggest that the next iPhone will be released in 4.7 and 5.5-inch varieties. It is also being said that Apple will not manufacture a 16GB variant.
Like all rumours, you should take these details with a pinch of salt. In the past few weeks, various supplier sources have come out with conflicting reports regarding specs and plans are subject to change. The next iPhone may not even be called the iPhone 6s, but all we know for certain is that Apple will announce a premium smartphone this year.
