Apple’s iPhone 5S Rumored To Feature A 12MP Camera, Better Low-Light Shooting And HDR Video Recording

Apple’s iPhone 5S has been talked about quite a lot lately and this is only expected to ramp up as its release date nears. Today a Vietnamese blog by the name of has reported that one area Apple will focus on largely improving in the iPhone 5S is its camera.

Although the iPhone 5 already has a great camera that is one of the best out of all the smartphones on the market today, apparently Apple will be equipping the iPhone 5S with a 12-megapixel camera with better low-light shooting and HDR video recording. The leaked information actually comes from Wonderful Saigon Electrics, which is a Vietnamese branch of a Japanese company that manufactures components for Apple, which managed to get a statement from.

iPhone 5S To Feature A 12MP Camera And HDR Video Recording

If the iPhone 5S does come with a 12MP camera that would be a 4MP jump from the current 8MP camera on the iPhone 5. Really, a better camera shouldn’t come as a surprise, as it is something Apple always improves every year, but whether or not it will be a 12MP camera remains unknown. Having better low-light abilities and HDR video recording would also allow it to compete with some of the high-end Android smartphones that are starting to adopt this technology.

This report should indeed be taken with a grain of salt, just like any rumor, but it is a believable rumor. What do you think? Would you be surprised to see the iPhone 5S ship with a 12MP camera and HDR video recording? Let us know in the comments section below.

    yo seriously, who the FUCK is complaining about their iPhone camera?! quit the bullshit and either get back to INNOVATING or just leave the damn thing alone and build it to last instead of just making more of the same god damn thing. Steve jobs, i know they say the effects of your designing are still in the process of bleeding out, but you and i know that is a crock of shit
