iPhone 5: 12.6 Megapixel Camera Possibility
The rumours and speculation concerning the next generation iPhone to come out of the Apple camp still continue with the latest speculation being touted that the iPhone 5 could possibly come out to play with the iOS masses sporting a better camera than the Sony 8 megapixel one previously rumoured.
According to an article over on Pocket Now and by way of Redmond Pie, and by way of iSpazio, OmniVision supplied Apple with the camera sensor for the iPhone 4, and now OmniVision is producing a 12.6 megapixel sensor capable of 1080p that should be available around June.
Of course the first thought that springs to mind is Apple could be contemplating using that OmniVision 12.6 megapixel camera sensor for the iPhone 5, although apparently no one has placed any orders for the sensor as yet.
However as Apple has previously used OmniVision camera sensors the argument is there’s no reason why Apple shouldn’t continue doing so and thus the rumour begins that the iPhone 5 could come out to play with a 12.6 megapixel camera and 1080p in tow. But word has been doing the rounds that Apple may ditch OmniVision in favour of that Sony 8 megapixel camera.
Would you like the next iOS smartphone to sport a 12.6 MP shooter with 1080p video? Perhaps that’s why Apple is delaying the release of the iPhone 5, waiting for that 12.6 megapixel sensor to be ready.
