iPhone 5S said to feature 12 megapixel camera with better night shooting

It’s that time of year again, folks. New smartphones are coming out left, right and centre, and gradually everyone has started to wonder what the folks from Cupertino will launch later in the year. Rumours of an iPhone 5S are increasing in number, with the latest pointing to an upgraded camera.

Apple has stuck with an 8 megapixel sensor for the iPhone 4S and 5, but now the tech giant is looking to up its game and stick a bigger and better sensor in the next iPhone. Reports coming from Vietnamese tech site, which has an impressive track record with Apple rumours, state that the iPhone 5S will feature a 12 megapixel camera with improved shooting in low light conditions.

The site claims to have gotten its information from the company supplying the camera parts to Apple for the next generation iPhone. Apple will improve the iPhone’s camera once again, as it does every year, with a larger and better sensor. There’s no indication as to how Apple will achieve better shooting in low light, but we can imagine the phone will feature a wider angle lens to allow more light in and a larger sensor to capture it.

We’re also told that the iPhone 5S will feature an upgraded processor and graphics, which is another annual tradition of Apple’s and is sure to be a feature of the next model. However, we’re not sure of the specifics of the chip just yet, which is widely thought to be known as the A7, built by Apple itself.

The rumour from contradicts a previous report from iLounge’s Jeremy Horowitz from earlier in the year, where he said that the next generation iPhone would use a 13 megapixel sensor from Sony. Whoever turns out to be correct, it would seem logical that this year Apple upgrades the iPhone’s camera in a big way.
