Next Apple iPhone will reportedly feature a 12MP camera - read the full textThe anticipated next iPhone, although itself still not fully emigrated from rumorland, is expected to feature an improved camera sensor compared to the one found on the current Apple flagship. The iPhone 5 features an 8MP camera sensor with an f/2.4 aperture, hybrid IR filter, and backside...

We all know how apple works these days.

They will just boost the specs ever so slightly and just enough for old iphone users to be tempted to get it just because its the new iphone out nothing more nothing less.

I have been an iphone user all the way from the beginning but starting to really look elsewhere.

Will wait to the iphone 5s is official before making my choice on my next phone.

iphone 5s, releases long after recent android devices - still has less megapixels and specs than 'not-even-the-best' android phones... lol at feeble attempt.

You know how it goes with megapixel count?
The same way as some people buy bigger cars than anyone else with louder stereo than anyone else's... the urge to compensate.
Kinda pathetic, though. But not an ounce more than what Apple does these days: every company used to copycat iPhone, now they just can't keep up with the others. Still, popping up larger and larger numbers for CPU speed, camera's megapixel count etc. is still very rewarding for these companies..
Seems like nobody cares that an older, 8MP DSLR with its kit lens still produces better images than these latest smartphone flagships and point-and-shoot cameras with their 13-15-18 MP sensors. When you are among your geek friends you must have the device with highest numbers in its specification to be the cool guy. You're camera is only 8MP in 2013? You're not even a human being!

I may be wrong and it's a wild guess but that sensor looks like an ex or rs sensor to me.

About the iPhone, apple won't change the device's resolution unless they a powers or multiples of the current resolutions without screwing up the devas and their own sdk. they'll make a bigger screen/1136*640=less DPI and double it in another gen. (sound very apple-y to me).

I don't think that Apple loyal clients could care less for the number of mpx,numbers of cpu frequency or it's number of display diagonal. Only indinanzzzzzzzzzzz and geeks needs to compare gadgets in figures. For us, a perfect phone, must look perfect, feel perfect, and offer a perfect user experience.

But it would still be a locked down proprietary feature phone.

Meh, I'll just buy the next nexus.

fanboys still can't handle this.

This isn't even news.
It would be great if they could be the first ones to get to 16mpx or improve camera quality by new technology.

Why is people comparing a upcoming iPhone 5s or surely iPhone 6 to the released GS4 which keeps on getting more popular. While they would compare the upcoming iPhone to the upcoming GNote 3.

This is were iPhone is losing competition because Samsung is fighting iPhone line up with the Galaxy S series and the Galaxy Note series. I'm not sure if the upcoming iPhone 5s or 6 will even beat the GS4 and still Note series are always better than the S series. Meaning iPhone have less change to be the winner here.

I don't think so. The iPhone is stale. The UI has been pretty much the same since 2007. It's boring. It's like an old stinky fish on the market. There is no real innovation on it but gimmicky software stuff like Siri, and Apple maps. They purposely trickle the hardware upgrades and charge you a premium for it. It's like a scam. What they could have put on iPhone 5 last year, they will put it on iPhone 5S to maximize the profits. That's Apple in a nutshell.
