Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac has acquired some newly leaked photos that show the new camera and screen of the next iPhones — likely called the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
The new phones will be introduced at Apple’s fall event on September 9.
The photo below shows a larger front-facing camera on the new (black) iPhone 6S, compared to the smaller one on the (white) iPhone 6 underneath it.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera sensors and f/2.2 aperture, which Apple said lets in 81 percent more light than earlier iPhones. The larger sensor on the new iPhone 6S (we don’t know exactly how large it will be) should make for brighter and sharper selfies and FaceTime video.
The 6S will also reportedly have a larger 12-megapixel rear-facing camera that can shoot 4K video. The iPhone 6 has an 8-megapixel camera, and the limitations of that camera can be clearly seen in the washed-out details of images.
As we reported in early June, the new iPhone 6S will get a front screen with Force Touch and haptic feedback. Below is a shot of the rectangle-shaped haptic feedback engine that creates the vibration response under the user’s finger touch.
9to5Mac’s photos also show the internal design of an upgraded Touch ID fingerprint sensor, Gurman says.
Apple is under a certain amount of pressure to offer a set of feature improvements in the new iPhone 6s that will tempt consumers to trade up from the current iPhone 6.
