With all the rumors that have been circling around the internet, we are now already aware of how the Apple iPhone 8 may look like and its specifications that may come with it. That said, a new report says that the Apple iPhone 8 may likely feature 4K video recording at 60fps on both its front-facing selfie camera and the from the main rear-sided camera.

While the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus already is capable of 4K video recording with its main cameras, the maximum bit-rate allowed is 30fps. Here, in this case, the iPhone 8 may likely have 4K 60fps video capabilities and if this rumor turns out to be legit, then the iPhone 8 will be the only smartphone with such a capability. Currently, there are no smartphones in the market with 4K at 60fps recording. We should also mention that before the unveiling of the Apple iPhone 7 series last year, there were similar rumors that claimed that the iPhone 7 will be capable of recording 4K videos at 60fps, but that didn’t turn out to be true in the end.

That said, this new information about the iPhone 8 comes from a coding information that was discovered and leaked by iHelp website portal. If you look closely, you can spot the lines “Back4k60VideoSupported” and “Front4k60VideoSupported” repeated many times throughout the code. It’s a fact that if the device doesn’t feature 4K at 60fps, then there is no reason for those lines to be mentioned in the code. However, there is a line in the code that says [CAMCaptureCapabilities _is2017iPhone], which could also mean that the Apple iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus may also feature the new camera capability.

There is still no confirmation on the new report until more reports come from trusted sources. A note to mention is that there are only a handful of professional cameras in the market that can record 4K video recording at 60fps, and so, it will be a great deal if the Apple iPhone 8 would feature the same. On the contrary, the Apple iPhone 8 is expected to sport a new design with thin bezels and an all-screen OLED display that will be produced by Samsung. Rumors indicate that the fingerprint scanner will be embedded within the OLED screen while certain reports say that Apple will integrate a new facial recognition sensor to replace the fingerprint scanner. The camera on the rear is also said to feature a dual-lens setup and the smartphone may have wireless charging capabilities.
