In the source code of various IOS 9 files are indications that future iPhone models get a better FaceTime camera on the front. It could possibly be a new selfie front camera with an LED flash and support for video in 1080p. In addition, features such as panorama and slow-motion will also be of use in combination with the new FaceTime camera.
New FaceTime camera for iPhone 6s?
The file CAMCaputeCapabilities in iOS 9 includes as developer Hamza Sood references as CAMCaptureCapabilities isFront1080p120Supported, which seems to indicate a slow-motion feature for the camera on the front.

The technology should result in higher quality pictures in all situations, but it is unclear whether the technology will be available already in the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Both devices are expected this fall, probably in the course of September.
