Next Generation iPhone Could Get A 5-Megapixel Camera
According to Korean Daily, The Chosun Ilbo, LG Innotek, a subsidiary of Korea based LG Corp could be developing camera sensors for the next generation iPhone.
The newspaper quotes reliable sources in the industry to have confirmed the development.
The report notes that Apple's next generation iPhone, dubbed iPhone HD, will be equipped with a 5 megapixel camera. The production of the "sophisticated cameras" is noted to have already commenced at LG Innotek's plant in Gumi, Korea. The newspaper further claims that mass production of the units will however begin in the latter half of this year.
Rumors of a 5 megapixel camera in iPhone 4G have been doing the rounds for several months now. However, Chosun Ilboreport contradicts earlier reports published on DigiTimes in November 2009 where it had been claimed that Omnivision Technologies had secured the contract to manufacture 5 megapixel camera sensors for Apple's next generation iPhone. It is not clear if Apple has placed orders with both companies.
Despite these contradicting reports, we are quite positive that Apple's new iPhone will get a better camera. The lost next generation iPhone prototype has also revealed that Apple's new iPhone will get a camera LED Flash.
I'm eagerly waiting for the day when the iPhone camera is so good that I don't need to carry a digital camera while travelling. So I'm looking forward to see what surprise Apple has for us on that front when it unveils the next generation iPhone in June.
