Rumors are swirling about the next generation iPhone and what upgrades it will have in store. The latest is that the iPhone will record video in high definition. With the release of iPhone OS 4 Beta 3, some users have found code that refers to a video recording at a preset value of 1280x720 (720p) along with the standard 640x480 resolution that we're used to on the iPhone 3GS:
Most of us expect that the next-generation iPhone will come with an upgraded camera (most likely a 5.0-megapixel one), so an upgraded video recorder seems to make sense. High-definition recording would also fit in nicely with the other rumors about the new iPhone, such as a higher resolution screen and the title of "iPhone HD" (which would be less confusing than iPhone 4G).
Would an iPhone with HD recording capabilities make you think twice about buying a stand-alone video camera? Let us know!
