Next iPhone To Have HD Video Recording?

For a while, having a 5-megapixel camera in your smartphone was considered to be pretty hot stuff, but HD video is quickly becoming the next big thing for smartphones. Now a few hints are starting to come together that may be a sign that the iPhone will be jumping on the HD video bandwagon in the next revision.

A while back, a mystery device called “N89″ was found in the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK, which is believed to be the code name for the next iPhone. Now someone has sneaked a peek at the MediaValidator.plist file for the N89 device, and it reveals that the minimum video width for the device is up from 768 to 1280, and the pixels per frame has changed to 921,600, making the dimensions 1280×720. The AVC profile was also upped from 3.0 to 3.1, adding support for 720p.

It’s pretty convincing evidence for HD video in the next iPhone. Is HD video something you’ve been hoping for? Let us know in the comments.
