Next-gen iPhone to sport 3.2Mp camera?

5Mp Apple device coming later this year, claim moles

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

The next iPhone could have a 3.2Mp camera on board if leaked details concerning an alleged Apple camera contract are to be believed.

Unnamed moles have told website Digitimes that digital imaging firm OmniVision has won an order from Apple to supply it with 3.2Mp CMOS image sensors - specifically for use on the next-generation iPhone.

The firm reportedly beat off rival firms STMicroelectronics and Aptina Imaging to win the contract.

And OmniVision must have impressed, because the market moles let slip that the firm’s also won a separate five-year contract to supply Apple with 5Mp sensors for “another Apple product” that could be launched “later in the year”.

Let’s hope the mole is correct, on both counts. ®
