xl_xl_iphone 6The upcoming iPhone 6s will reportedly feature a dual lens camera capable of optical zoom and a 3D pressure sensor, according to UDN via GforGames.

Aside from the dual-lens, optical zoom capable camera, the publication also says that more light will be able to reach the sensor, which will enhance the image quality. In translation, this probably means that Apple will probably tinker with the iSight camera’s aperture (iPhone 6 has an f/2.2 aperture).

Interesting, the 3D pressure sensor might indicate that Apple has plans to brings its Force Touch technology found in the Apple Watch to the iPhone. Force Touch uses tiny electrodes around the display to distinguish between a light tap and a deep press, and trigger instant access to a range of contextually specific controls

Supply chain sources also said that Apple’s 2015 iPhone lineup will be very similar to this year’s lineup, suggesting that Apple won’t release a 4-inch iPhone this fall.

Another prediction is that Apple will increase storage for the base model to 32GB. This and the majority of new added components are said to improve interaction with the Apple Watch.

Notably, this is not the first report that the iPhone 6s will feature a dual lens camera. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber said that he’s heard the device will feature “some sort of weird two-lens system where the back uses two lenses and somehow that takes it up into SLR quality imagery.”
