iPhone 6s to Feature 12-Megapixel RGBW Photo Sensor Manufactured by Sony

Earlier this month, first rumors began to appear on the Internet suggesting that the long-anticipated iPhone 6s will boast of the 12-megapixel camera. According to a usually reliable website Feng.com, Apple’s new handset will indeed feature a 12-megapixel RGBW sensor produced by Sony.

This new sensor will add a white pixel to the usual RGB palette in order to make the images taken in darkness look better by reducing noise and compensating the lack of light. Looks like Sony’s new sensor will beat most of the existing cameras of mobile devices and make the next-generation iPhone even more attractive device for mobile photographers and Instagram addicts.

Sony notes that typically the addition of W (White) pixels improves sensitivity, but has the problem of degrading image quality. However, their device technology and signal processing realizes superior sensitivity without hurting image quality.

Today’s report comes after several other rumors shared by reliable insiders, who claimed the guys from Cupertino will indeed equip the iPhone 6s with a brand new camera.
