Many Apple fans have their hopes and dreams locked up in the iPhone 6. They’re expecting an incredible device which breaks boundaries and offers the technology they’ve been dreaming of. But are fans’ expectations set too high? In terms of the camera, they just might be, at least in terms of pixel count.

How many pixels for the iPhone 6?

A report from The China Post in reference to Largan Precision Co. said the reason for the company’s declining share price was because of rumors about the iPhone 6. This latest rumor suggested that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would not be including a 13-megapixel camera in the handset at all. This, of course, would be a negative for Largan since it makes cameras for mobile devices.

Nomura Securities reports that Apple could stick with an 8-megapixel camera but improve the optical image stabilization on it rather than move to a 16-megapixel camera for the iPhone 6. Many are anticipating either a 13-megapixel or a 16-megapixel, so retaining the 8-megapixel camera may end up being a big disappointment for Apple fans.

Form factor matters in iPhone 6

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has long been worried about the form factor and outer appearance of its devices. The company didn’t want to offer a bigger screen because it wanted to make sure that the device could be operated by one hand. In this case, the company was said to be concerned about form factor again with the iPhone 6. Apple reportedly didn’t want to upgrade the camera’s pixel count if it meant increasing the size of the handset.

If the iPhone 6 gets more of an outside design update rather than a component update, Apple would just be following the same trend it has followed for years. The main-numbered iPhones tend to have a slightly different exterior than the S versions, while the components in the S versions typically have better upgrades compared to the main-numbered versions. As a result, we might have to wait until the iPhone 6S before we’ll see a camera from Apple with more than 8 megapixels.
