5 Megapixel Cameras in the Next iPhone?
Rumors already have started appearing that a new generation of iPhones will come out soon. Three weeks ago, a new iPhone generation was spotted by analytic tools by an iPhone application developer, and that was the first sign of the next coming iPhone. Today, DigiTimes reports that, according to a source, OmniVision has secured 5 megapixel CIS orders for the next generation of iPhones!
DigiTimes reported back in April this year, that OmniVision has won the contract to supply Apple with cameras, that later turned out to be 3.2 megapixel cameras for the iPhone 3GS, and the same report claimed that Apple had secured 5 megapixel cameras for en unreleased product.
Up to the 9th September media event this year, DigiTimes reported that OmniVision had made a contract to exclusively supply Apple with cameras, and that the iPod Touch, iPod Classic and iPod Nano would get a 3.2 megapixel camera. That didn’t happen since the only member of the iPod family that got a camera was iPod Nano, which received a 0.3 megapixel camera, but with no ability to take still pictures.
