iPhone 6 to feature EIS instead of OIS, rumors say

By on

As the rumored release date of Apple’s iPhone 6 is just around the corner, more details about the most anticipated smartphone are also flooding in different sites. The latest we’ve heard is that the ?iPhone 6 camera ?will feature EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) instead of OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). ?

According to Sun Chang Xu, new chief analyst at ESM-China, Apple?s next flagship phone will not use OIS.

Reports said that iPhone 6 will come with an 8MP camera but previous rumors claimed that iPhone 6 will come with a bigger sensor (1/2.6? as opposed to iPone 5S?s 1/3?), an f/2.0 aperture size (vs f/2.2 on the 5S and f/2.4 on iPhone 5), 6P sapphire lens, and EIS instead of OIS since it doesn?t require moving parts in the camera. Thus it will produce a slimmer handset.

Moreover, it was reported that Apple will be introducing a new 64-bit mobile processor – the new Apple A8, which the company will also use in other devices like the iPad.

Apple has been reported to launch two new iPhone models later this fall, which are said to have larger displays. Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst predicted that iPhone 6 will come in 4.7 and 5.5-inches with 1334?750 (326ppi) retina display for the 4.7-inches iPhone 6 and 1920 x 1080 (401 ppi) resolutions for the 5.5-inches iPhone 6; these models will come with an Apple A8 processor, 1GB of RAM, LTPS display panels, and Touch ID.

The iPhone 6 models will also come in a 10 to 20 per cent narrower bezel, metal casings, a 6.5?7.0mm thickness, and NFC chips integration.

Aside from iPhone 6 that is expected to be out in the market this September, Apple is also reported to be releasing Apple iWatch and Apple iOS 8.

Latest reports about Apple products is the updated MacBook Air. Apple announced that the MacBook Air has faster processors, fast flash storage, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, up to 12 hours of battery life and Apple?s iLife? and iWork? apps at $899.
