PanARMENIAN.Net - Another iPhone 8 leak ahead of Apple’s fall event next Tuesday, September 12 when it’s officially expected to unveil its new flagships: there appears to be some more fun in iOS 11. Something referenced as Jellyfish that appears to be iOS 11 GM leak confirms D22 ‘iPhone 8’ features: Portrait Lighting, True Tone Display, revised AirPods, much more, animated versions of emoji characters for iMessage, 9to5Mac reports.
These are called Animoji and will use facial tracking and your voice to create expressive animated messages.
Another discovery is a set of new wallpapers coming with iOS 11 and the first look at the LTE Apple Watch. Next up: new and confirmed features coming to the OLED iPhone.
Starting with what might be the most interesting new discovery: Portrait Lighting. This feature appears to be an enhancement on the iPhone’s Portrait mode effect for creating dSLR-like shots using depth by simulating different lighting effects.
Portrait Lighting, which we believe will launch in beta similar to Portrait mode last year, supports Contour Light, Natural Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Studio Light. It’s possible this Portrait mode enhancement could be related to the flash when shooting.
Also present is new video recording resolution and capture speeds:
1080p HD at 240 fps 480 MB with 1080p HD at 240 fps
4K at 24 fps (Footer) 270 MB with 4K at 24 fps (film style) (HEVC Footer) 135 MB with 4K at 24 fps (film style)
4K at 60 fps (Footer) 450 MB with 4K at 60 fps (higher resolution, smoother) (HEVC Footer) 400 MB with 4K at 60 fps (higher resolution, smoother)
Also, there is evidence that the OLED iPhone will feature a True Tone Display for white balancing like the iPad Pro lineup.
Face ID appears to be the official marketing name for what’s been referenced as Pearl ID, the facial recognition features that will likely replace the Touch ID fingerprint recognition feature.
