iPhone 8 To Support 4K Video At 60 FPS, HomePod Firmware Reveals
The iPhone 8 leaks from Apple's HomePod firmware are coming continuously. Apple had accidentally released the HomePod firmware to the public and that gave many speculations about the upcoming iPhone 8. However, a Portuguese news site has found a code which apparently indicates that the iPhone 8 will be capable of 4K video at 60 frames per second with both the front and rear cameras.
Lines of code were discovered by Portuguese news site iHelp BR , which suggested to potential high-resolution recording capabilities for both front and rear cameras, specifically 4K Video support. In the HomePod firmware, the code shows a device with support for 4K video at 60 FPS. Interestingly, there's also a "front" and "back" identifier applied to each line, seemingly suggesting that both cameras will support the higher quality video.
Currently, the back camera in the Apple iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus is capable of recording 4K video at 30 frames per second, while the front-facing camera is limited to 1080p recording. However, these specifications are not expected to come in the iPhone 8, but the improved frame rate might be useful for the augmented reality applications coming in iOS 11, Mac Rumors reported.
The jump to 60 FPS does make sense on several fronts. For one, Apple almost always improves the iPhone camera with hardware iteration and support for 60 FPS might be the next step up for it. The iPhone 8 is also said to offer a host of augmented reality capabilities as part of Apple's ARKit framework, and 60 FPS support will be allowing user AR improvements.
From previous leaks, it is clear that front and rear facing cameras may also gain "Smart Camera" features able to detect different types of scenes, photo conditions, and photography subjects. The Apple's HomePod firmware has provided a wealth of information about the iPhone, and moreover to these camera changes.
