Apple’s new iPads could come with improved eight-megapixel cameras, it has emerged. That’s the word from renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, whose latest report focuses on the forthcoming tablets’ camera smarts.
According to Kuo, the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 look likely to rock cameras with beefed up sensors, up from five megapixels in the current iteration. The aperture could also be boosted by up to 20%.
The upgrades would bring the iPad cameras almost in line with the new iPhone 5s, which also packs in slow motion video at 120fps.
However, it is not believed the cameras will have the same True Tone flash functionality: The iPad has never had a flash and it seems unlikely Apple will add one with its new generation.
The iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 are both expected to be launched at a special event later in Octiber or early November. The latter could ship in limited numbers, thanks to constraints with Retina Display supply.
