iPhone 6 May Sport 13-Megapixel Camera, Supposedly

Whether the iPhone 6 will get a camera upgrade has been up for debate for some time. Supposedly the debate had been settled a while back with rumors suggesting that the handset will have the same 8-megapixels but possibly feature other camera improvements. Now, however, G for Games is reporting that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will use a 13-megapixel camera.

Chinese web forum claims 13-megapixel camera for iPhone 6

G for Games cites a Chinese web forum for the rumor that the iPhone 6 will have a 13-megapixel camera. These forums are usually pretty unreliable, but it states that Apple is planning to use the Sony Exmor sensor, which is capable of supporting cameras up to 20 megapixels. The web forum where the claim was found supposedly has a pretty good track record when it comes to rumors about Sony.

As 9to5 Mac reports, it seems that bumping up the specs for the iPhone 6 camera wouldn’t be in line with Apple’s habits. In the past, the company has only done this with S models.

iPhone 6 battery to be ultra-thin

A separate report from the Taiwanese site Digitimes indicates that the iPhone 6 will sport a battery that’s only 2 millimeter’s thick. That’s a full millimeter thinner than the one that’s in the iPhone 5S and 5C. The report suggests that the battery will have a capacity that’s similar to the current battery in the iPhone 5S. Other reports have indicated that the battery will have a capacity of between 1800 and 1900 mAh, which would be around a 16% improvement from the battery in the iPhone 5S.

The site also reports that the makers of components for the handset are also reducing how thick the panels and back casing for the iPhone 6 are. The thinness of the components are said to be causing problems for manufacturers, however, because they are extremely fragile. If Apple really does manage to thin down the iPhone 6, there have been suggestions that the company will call it the iPhone Air instead, following the same line as its ultra-thin iPad Air.
