4th Generation iPhone To Receive 5MP Camera?

Share:

The folks over at DigiTimes have received word that OmniVision has secured a contract to manufacture 5 megapixel cameras for the next generation iPhone which is expected in Summer 2010 at Apple’s annual WWDC event.

Currently, OmniVision is the provider of the 3.2 megapixel cameras found in the iPhone 3GS. Previously, a company named Aptina provided the cameras for the iPhone 3G.

OmniVision snatched 3.2-megapixel CIS orders for Apple’s iPhone 3GS, beating out Aptina Imaging which supplies the 2-megapixel CIS solution for the iPhone 3G.

The fourth generation iPhone camera upgrade would match most of today’s camera smartphones such as the Motorola Droid. The higher quality camera will definitely be a welcomed addition to the new iPhone but hopefully it will also introduce a zoom feature and maybe even flash.

    Yeah, this would definitely be a welcome upgrade, but I agree, a flash would be more welcome. I've been reading specs on Googles phone, the Nexus One: 5 megapixels, with mechanical auto focus, and LED flash. Take note, Apple!

    Apple, give front camera (Back camera) and flash!
    5MP is a good feature I guess….

    Hmmm… seems like posts that were posted yesterday were deleted?
    Apple! Bring on front camera (Back camera) and flash, then im happy! 5MP jump up is better then nothing I guess…

  • Would be great a 7 megapixels camera and the possibility to shot in manual, the other thing also great would be the option to put a sd card to enlarge the hard drive capacity
