Rumor: Sony will be supplying the iPhone 6S with a 12MP camera

We recently came across some rumors that Apple will finally be dropping the dated 8MP camera that the past few iterations of the iPhone have used in favor of a 12MP camera. While nothing has been confirmed, a report out of Japan claims that the iPhone 6S will indeed come with a 12MP camera, one which Sony will be supplying. The report also claims that the smartphone will come with 2GB of RAM and at least 32GB of storage. 

Earlier this month we learned that Apple might boost the iPhone 6s camera up to a 12-megapixels lens. Now a new report out of Japan bolsters those rumors while revealing that Sony will supply the new camera modules. Sony already ships the cameras for Apple’s current iPhones, so it makes sense that the two companies would team up again. The report suggests that Apple won’t feature dual rear camera setup that surfaced recently, though that rumor seemed pretty far fetched. Additionally, the new lens could include an RGBW sensor, for better low light photos, and a faster focus. Finally, the report backs up recent rumors that the iPhone 6s will pack 2GB of RAM and at least 32GB of storage. Apple seems pretty content with its current RAM and storage options, though it’s possible the company is finally ready to swap out some specs for the iPhone 6s, especially if iOS 9 requires additional horsepower.
