Usually-reliable KGI recently released a report repeating the details of what the iPhone 6S could feature. At the same time, they also said the new flagship smartphone from Apple will feature a 5MP front facing camera, opposed to the 1.2 MP camera currently found on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Adding on to the already stated camera news, KGI also suggests that the rear camera will not be coated in sapphire as the 6 and 6 Plus’s cameras are. However sapphire is more scratch resistant then Gorilla Glass, it is more brittle, grading Apple’s drop tests for the new iPhone failed as the camera showed damage.
“Aside from upgrading rear camera module to 12MP, Apple will upgrade front camera module to 5MP […] The new iPhone may not be equipped with sapphire cover lens, as it still has quality issues on the drop test.” – KGI
