According to a report on Tuesday, by UDN, the next iPhone will include dual lens coming out of the back that will have optical zoom rather than digital zoom which has been in all previous iPhones. The report also states Apple may use a 3D pressure sensor to simulate force touch on the Apple Watch, to sense the difference between tap and press.
Moreover, the new camera may be able to capture more light to enhance image quality. The current iPhone 6 have a f/2.2 aperture.
A few other things to note from the report: the next generation iPhone will retain the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus design, and the smallest storage option will be bumped from 16 gigabytes to 32 gigabytes (which was missing from the current lineup).
If force touch is implemented in the next generation iPhone, this will create a new layer of interactivity on iOS. Senior VP of Design Jony Ive agrees the new force touch technology “quite literally adds a new dimension to the user interface.”
