Apple is bringing some big upgrades to the iPhone 6s FaceTime camera according to a new report from one of the most respected Apple analysts on the planet.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a note to investors this morning, claiming the new iPhone 6s will add a much improved 5 megapixel camera sensor to the FaceTime camera, making it it the best selfie machine Apple has ever made.

A number of other leaks and rumors have pointed to other FaceTime camera improvements like the addition of a front-facing flash. Early component leaks of the iPhone 6s display have also indicated that Apple has increased the size of the FaceTime camera, which should lead to better snaps in low light.

Along with providing new details about the 5MP FaceTime sensors, Ming-Chi Kuo also told investors that Apple will not make any changes to its storage capacities this year, with 16GB, 64GB and 128GB being the same sizes for the iPhone 6s.

Kuo also confirmed that Force Touch will be one of this year’s big new features, but says the company experienced production bottlenecks for the casing and vibration motors last month. The iPhone 6s will also come in a new rose gold casing color according to his note.

The iPhone 6s will be announced on September 9th at an Apple press event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Other new Apple products expected to make an appearance at the event include a new Apple TV and the iPad Pro.
