Analyst: Apple’s next-gen iPhone likely to pack HD-capable front camera

“Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone could include a front-facing camera capable of HD resolution, according to a new reported from a trusted analyst insider,” Josh Ong reports for AppleInsider.

“The Cupertino, Calif., company is expected to make ‘quite a few essential adjustments’ to its next iPhone, KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo said in a note to investors earlier this week,” Ong reports. “In addition to the move to HD, he believes Apple will also employ a flip-chip (FC) solution for the front-facing camera on the upcoming iPhone. The camera’s position would be moved to the middle, he said.”

Ong reports, “As for the rear-facing camera, Kuo said Apple will likely retain the 8-megapixel camera while improving the aperture range to go up to f/2.2. The iPhone 4S has a maximum aperture of f/2.4. The analyst also predicted that the rear camera on the next iPhone will be noticeable thinner, ‘making it the most challenging iPhone design yet.'”
