Apple IPhone 6 Tipped To Retain 8 MP Resolution

Sources with some knowledge of the matter recommdiscontinue that Apple will not be interested in increasing the megapixel count of its next iPhone smartphone camera. Instead Apple will likely focus on improving the lens system and image quality.

Previous rumors recommended the iPhone 6 capturing camera may be bumped to 10 MegaPixel (MP) with a faster F/1.8 aperture (the iPhone 5s is currently sporting an F/2.2 lens) so perhaps the aperture will remain.

Rumors are circulating that Apple will utilize swappable resin lenses for its iPhone 6. Other rumors have recommended optical image stabilization but seeing how Apple is doing some clever gyro-based software tricks in the iPhone 5s to avoid OIS it seems unlikely the company will change its mind in the next flagship.

If Apple indeed retains the 8 MegaPixel (MP) resolution which debuted on the iPhone 4S camera, it will go against the current trdiscontinue of manufacturer increasing megapixel count in their smartphones' cameras recently.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo 13 MegaPixel (MP) sensor shipments are higher than any other resolution - expected to be 65% of all high resolution components by the discontinue of the year. The raise in demand is expected to continue well into 2015. According to Ming-Chi Kuo Sony has a 65.7% share of the market for 13+ MegaPixel (MP) sensors.

Sony is expected to produce a recent 21 MegaPixel (MP) 1/2.4" sensor for the last quarter of the year. Could it star in the Xperia Z3? It seems likely considering Sony's six month flagship cycle.
