We have talked a lot about the display and design of the upcoming iPhone 8 but we haven’t got to know much about the camera capabilities. All we knew was that the dual cameras will be placed vertically instead of horizontally. But a real news has just dropped in and according to it, the iPhone will be able to records 4K videos at 60fps from both its cameras on the back as well as the front.
Just a few days back, HomePod firmware had leaked that confirmed the final design of the iPhone 8 along with a few more details. The new set of information from the code of the leaked firmware shows that the phone will indeed be capable of recording 4K videos at 60fps. This piece of information was revealed by iHelp.
The code has been marked in the image that reveals, not just the rear camera will sport this capability, but the front camera will have it, too. For being able to record 4K videos, the camera sensor must of at least 8MP to accommodate all the pixels of a 4K video. The current iPhones come with a front camera of 7MP, so Apple will have to upgrade the camera sensor on the front as well to bring these video capabilities.
A similar code was leaked at the time of iOS 9 which suggested that the front camera would support 1080p slow motion video at 240fps, front flash, and panoramic feature. Out of the three, only the front flash was brought to reality and that too was a software addition. Considering that, we should not fully trust the new leak just yet.
While the front camera may not get support for 4K video at 60fps, but the rear camera might definitely get it. It makes more sense now as Apple has recently opted for HEVC (H.265) for its MacOS High Sierra. H.265 video format is the direct successor to the older H.264 and it takes up to 40 percent less storage when compared to its predecessor.
