iPhone 6S has 5MP Selfie Camera Says Analyst

Apple is finally splurging on megapixels for the cameras on the iPhone 6S.

Besides the 12MP camera upgrade in the back we heard about earlier, Apple is also supposed to upgrade the front-facing camera. Analyst firm KGI reports according to 9to5Mac that Apple upgrades the front-facing camera with a 5MP sensor.

The current FaceTime camera on the iPhone 6 has only a 1.2MP camera. It is amazing how Apple gets by with the low resolution sensors. You won't find a 1.2MP camera in most Android phones anymore.

Earlier, a report said that Apple will use the screen as a flash for selfies. When pushing the shutter, the screen briefly flashes white. The new sensor should dramatically improve the quality of selfies made with iPhone 6S. Selfie queen and iPhone user Kim Kardashian will now be first in line for a new iPhone 6S.

KGI is still concerned about the sales potential for the iPhone 6S as the new features are of limited appeal. I do not agree. The new cameras alone will make a big difference. The appeal of the Force Touch screen remains to be seen.

In addition the iPhone 6 is still selling strong ahead of the iPhone 6S launch according to the new Kantar World Panel report.
