Next-gen IPhone Will Have An 8 MP OmniVision Camera, No LTE?By cheatmaster 08:07 Sun, 11 Jul 2021 Comments
The rumor mill is churning up recent speculations of the next-gen iPhone camera. The upcoming iDevice could very well discontinue up with an OmniVision camera, instead of the previously rumored Sony snapper. Also an LTE-enabled iPhone is unlikely to hit the market in 2011 due to low interest and the slow growth of the LTE networks.
According to the DigiTimes sources the next-gen iPhone will start its production in August and go on sale as early as September. The device will supposedly be dubbed iPhone 4S, which if accurate might be one of the most unfortunate namings we have ever seen (just say it out loud and you will see what we mean). Also we got word that elegant Qualcomm will be the manufacturer of the 3G and CDirect Memory Access (DMA) radios of the smartphone.
The capturing camera of the iPhone 4S has been a taracquire of discussion before, when we thought Sony will be the one to manufacture it, supplying their Exmor R backside illuminated sensors to Apple. However latest gossip points at OmniVision sticking around for another round. It's rumored that OmniVision will supply the image sensors, while Largan Precision the lens kits.
This leaves us guessing about the sensor resolution. Smart money are still on an 8 MegaPixel (MP) unit but OmniVision has just announced their recent generation 5 MegaPixel (MP) sensor, the OV5690, which has the ability to shoot 1080p video at 30 fps or 720p video at 60 fps. The recent sensor will be 20% slimmer side, which might assist it find its place and knowing Apple's love for slim devices might discontinue up in their next smartphone.
It's less than a month now until the WWDC (it's starting 6 June), where the iPhone 4S should be unveiled. We hope so as we've seen the best come out of Android for now and are eager to see what Apple will respond with.
