The leaked firmware for the Apple HomePod has provided a wide range of details about the new iPhone 8. We previously heard that facial recognition may be used for Apple Pay on this years flagship iPhone and now we have some more details on the handsets cameras.
Some information discovered in the HomePod firmware suggests that the new iPhone 8 will be capable of recording 4K video at 60 frames per second on both the front and rear cameras.
If this is correct then both the front and rear cameras on the new iPhone 9 will be getting an upgrade over the current iPhones. At the moment 4K video is recorded at 30 frames per second on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on the rear cameras. The front camera on the handsets records video in 1080p.
Apple’s new iPhone will come with an OLED display, we do not know the resolution as yet, although it is expected to be either QHD or QHD+, the handset will have a 5.8 inch display. Processing on the new iPhone 8 is said to come from a new Apple A11 processor, this is expected to give around a 30% gain on the existing devices.
The design and materials of the handset will change, the device is expected to feature a stainless steel chassis and a glass back. The device will also come with dual rear camera which will have a vertical setup. We are looking forward to finding out more details about Apple’s new iPhone. The handset is expected to launch in September with the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
