Apple’s iPhone 6 could feature Sony’s Exmor IMX220 camera sensor, according to a poston Chinese Sony enthusiast forum Digi-Wo (Google Translate, via G for Games). The Exmor IMX220 features a 13-megapixel, 1/2.3” sensor and can record videos in 1080p. The sensor would also be a sizable improvement over the camera currently in the iPhone 5s, which uses an 8-megapixel, 1/3.2” sensor.

Past gossips have stated that the apple iphone 6 will support the same 8-megapixel sensor featured in the apple iphone 5s, with Apple seeking to provide enhanced image stabilization for additional obvious reasons. A study recently also noted that the optical image stabilization system is going to be solely featured within the bigger 5.5-inch apple iphone 6, as the more compact 4.7-inch version utilizes an enhanced lens module.

Particularly however, the apple iphone 4S, apple iphone 5, and apple iphone 5s used incremental versions of Sony’s IMX145 sensor, as Apple could choose to implement a brand new sensor from Sony for the Apple iphone 6. The new sony can also be expected to utilize a 20-megapixel form of the IMX220 in the The new sony Xperia Z3 flagship device that’s slated to ship later this season.

While Digi-Wo doesn’t have a history with Apple-related rumors, the web site has offered highly accurate info in the past concerning sony items before their release, and lately offered leaked photos from the Xperia Z3.

Apple’s iPhone 6 is anticipated to be introduced this fall in a special media event. The unit is anticipated to feature two different model sizes, namely a 4.7 and 5.5-inches, although it is not currently known when the bigger sized apple iphone 6 will ship to retail markets. Additionally for an enhanced camera, the apple iphone 6 will have a thinner profile, a much faster A8 processor, and Apple’s newiOS 8 mobile operating-system. The combination is sure to be a winner.
