The Cupertino, Calif., company is expected to make “quite a few essential adjustments” to its next iPhone, KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo said in a note to investors earlier this week.
In addition to the move to HD, he believes Apple will also employ a flip-chip (FC) solution for the front-facing camera on the upcoming iPhone. The camera’s position would be moved to the middle, he said.
Kuo noted that an HD front camera would better suit the 4-inch display that he expects Apple’s sixth-generation handset to have. Currently, the front-facing camera of the iPhone 4S is capable of VGA resolution.
