CUPERTINO, USA – Following the Gizmodo episode of the stolen next-generation iPhone prototype, some interesting leaks regarding the features of iPhone OS4 have surfaced on the web. One of the most consistent of all the leaks is the HD recording capability of the fourth-generation iPhone, which is widely rumored to be called iPhone HD.

While the developer preview of iPhone OS4 revealed the release of APIs giving full access of video capture data to developers, the just-released iPhone OS4 Beta SDK, has the ability to capture video at higher resolutions than the current standard 640×480-pixel (VGA) resolution. These preset values within the SDK release are hinting an iPhone with 720p (1280×720 pixels) video recording capability.

It has been known for a while that the iPhone was headed for a camera upgrade and the hardware breakdown of the leaked prototype by Gizmodo confirmed the same. However, the breakdown was not able to confirm exact specifications of the camera sensor, with Gizmodo concluding a better camera on the basis of a larger camera sensor. With the present generation iPhone 3GS being equipped with a 3.2 megapixel sensor, the fourth generation iPhone is widely expected to sport a 5 megapixel camera sensor.

With the Apple World Developer Conference scheduled in San Francisco on 7th of June, the entire smartphone industry is waiting with bated breath as Apple throws open its gates to developers worldwide and going by Apple’s track record, the event will also see the release of the latest generation iPhone along with the iPhone OS4.
