The new features will include 1080p recording; FrontSlomo, slow motion 240 frames per second; FrontPanorama, panoramic capture; Front60FPSVideo and built-in flash.
For now, these features are the key specs for the primary cameras, iSight, that iPhones host. However, with the new operating system, the primary camera will also receive a bump in the features with the resolution amped from 8 MP to 12 MP.
The current front camera in the iPhone series boasts only of 30 frames per second videos at 720p recording with and no options for panoramic selfies or slow motion video recording.
While there is no guarantee of these speculations to come true, Sood has previously predicted upcoming technologies on point a number of times, including when Touch ID was introduced.
While Samsung has regained its top position at the beginning of this year, the new features in the iPhone 6S, to launch this fall, might just give its lead back.
