The latest iPhone 8 leak seems to suggest we'll be getting 4K video


Ahead of Apple’s official reveal of the iPhone 8 on September 12, a number of features have been revealed in a iPhone 8 leak, including that it might actually be called the iPhone X.

The latest Apple update – iOS 11 – was leaked over the weekend and has revealed what the name, specs and more indications on what camera we are likely to expect.

Developer Steven Troughton-Smith has been looking at the code and slowly revealing what it could show about the specs of the model on Twitter.

Based on his digging, he revealed what was already rumoured – that the back camera might have a 12MP sensor that can record 4K footage at 60 fps while the front camera could be 7MP, capable of shooting 1080p at 240 fps.

If true, the specifications would improve upon the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, which can record at 4K at 30 fps.

However, others have predicted that this might not be the case due to the lack of conclusive evidence.

The Video Mode already looked at what we could expect from the camera back in August, but since then more has been revealed.

Back then we reported rumours that that the front camera will incorporate 3D-sensing capabilities. This seems likely with the leak of the new Animoji feature, which uses face scanners to make 3D emojis of animals, robots and, of course, the smiley poo emoji.

We’ll just have to wait and see if the features in the iPhone 8 leak will end up being reality – but don’t worry, we certainly won’t have to wait long to find out as the iPhone 8 is set to be revealed on Tuesday.
