Next up, we pluck the upgraded rear-facing camera from its berth.

While it looks pretty similar to the one in the 5s (left), the SE's camera (right) has far fewer pins on its connector.

Do you think those extra megapixels ever get stuck in connector traffic?

The SE's iSight camera gets a resolution bump up to 12 MP, but a decrease in pixel pitch down to 1.22µm from the 1.5µm pitch in the 5s.

Since these are the exact same specs as the main camera in the iPhone 6s, we'd hoped the cameras might be interchangeable—but alas, our hopes of creating a complete Apple Frankenphone might be overreaching.
