Apple is widely expected to announce its new iPhone models to the public on September 9 and, as is usually the case, the rumor mill is running hot. On the camera side of things, new reports are saying that the next model will finally increase the pixel count of the imaging sensor which has remained at 8MP since the iPhone 4s was released in 2011. The upcoming iPhone 6s is expected to deploy a 12MP camera module that is also capable of recording 4K video. 

In addition, the new Apple A9 chipset will apparently come with an updated ISP for better image processing including an improved HDR mode. The current front-facing 1.2MP module will be replaced by a 5MP unit that can record 720p slow-motion video. It's also said to use a white screen to simulate a 'flash' when shooting self-portraits, in a similar way to what we've seen on the LG G4 or latest generation Motorola Moto G

In comparison to most current flagship phones those specifications don't sound particularly impressive, but in our iPhone 6 Plus review we found that Apple squeezed great image quality out of the slightly antiquated (on paper at least) 8MP sensor. We're looking forward to seeing what can be done with a higher resolution unit.
