Sources from Taiwan's industrial chain claim the iPhone 6 will have at least a 10-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.8, reports Chinese website IT168 [Google Translate, via GforGames]. This would be an improvement over the current iPhone 5s, which has an 8-megapixel camera with a narrower f/2.2 aperture.

The report also claims Apple will change the filter used on the iPhone 6 camera, replacing the hybrid IR filter used on the iPhone 5s with a resin lens filter manufactured by Japanese company JSR. JSR is known for its ARTON Resins, which are used in digital and video cameras with CMOS image sensors. JSR claims its ARTON filters are lighter and thinner than comparable IR filters and take clearer images due to the resin's ability to minimize the color shifts of CMOS image sensors.

The IT168 story contradicts an earlier report from the The China Post that claims Apple will continue to use a 8-megapixel sensor in its next iPhone. According to analysts from Nomura Securities, the camera module in the iPhone 6 instead will see improvements in other areas such as optical image stabilization.

And here is the rumored specs on Galaxy S5, check camera specs.
According to KDB’s unnamed supply chain sources, the Galaxy S5 will be powered by either a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon chipset or an octa-core 64-bit Exynos SoC clocked at 2GHz. As was the case with the Galaxy S4, the processor will vary by region and device model.

Other specs, according to the firm, include a 5.2- or 5.25-inch AMOLED display with WQHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440 pixels), 3GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB/128GB storage options, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a massive 3,200 mAh battery. KDB also says that the Galaxy S5 version it has detailed will be the first flagship phone from Samsung to feature an all-metal case.

Well, to be honest this isn't "another spike" because most iPhone users won't know or care about the better optics, as they really don't care about picture quality. A quick scan of Pinterest or Facebook will prove this quickly.

At this point the P&S is still a viable market segment only due to inertia.

pretty much this. They simply dont care too much about optics, just that it's the best in it's class and makes sharing a breeze. Unless the P&S is a whole league better, the phone camera crowd wont care.

Yup. Canon is trying to counter this trend by creating P&S with connectivity options, but in this particular market, the optical improvements aren't worth the hassle of carrying two devices, and pairing a camera to a smarthphone.

Canon's only hope to compete in this market is to actually build a smartphone, or partner with someone who does. Otherwise, it'd be best if they cut their losses and focus (no pun intended) their efforts elsewhere. Instagram is hugely popular with the younger generation, so you have a new generation of budding photographers out there who will appreciate the optical quality....however, they're growing up in an era where sharing a photo is instantaneous and to have any hope of competing in that arena, you'll have to cater to that expectation.

Lets hope this one doesn't want to use 1/20 for EVERY shot in even kind of dim light. It's probably the most common camera in the world for people shots and it becomes nearly unusable thanks to always picking 1/20. Motion blur in 2/3 indoor shots it seems.
