The value of microreporting: Three sentences in Taiwan’s Digitimes set off reams of speculation about Apple’s next iPhone.
Supplier OmniVision has a contract to supply 3.2 megapixel image sensors for the next generation iPhone, the mag reported. The current iPhone has a 2 megapixel camera that’s pretty weak for a top-end phone nowadays.
AppleInsider relayed the news and suggested the next iPhone may also finally be able to capture video.
OmniVision is also supplying 5 megapixel sensors “for another Apple product expected to be launched later in the year.”
