No Apple iPhone 5 camera change, release in 2012 fiscal year

By Jamie Pert - Apr 4, 2011

According to a recent article posted on AppleInsider it looks like Apple will stick with OmniVision when they begin designing the 5th-generation iPhone, this follows rumors suggesting that the iPhone 5 camera may be manufactured by Sony.

The rumors firsts started when comments from Sony’s chief executive were misinterpreted to mean that Sony may supply Apple with 8 megapixel sensors for the iPhone 5, a Wall Street analyst says that there is evidence which suggests that Apple will continue to use OmniVision.

OmniVision supplied the cameras for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, the analyst (Oppenheimer & Co’s Yair Reiner) says that checks with contacts have indicated that the iPhone 5 will also feature OmniVision sensors.

Obviously none of this has been officially confirmed by Apple, however we think that Sony would be mad to manufacturer a sensor for such a rival, Sony CEO’s reportedly said “It always puzzles me, why would I make Apple the best camera?”

AppleInsider’s article also suggests that the iPhone 5 may not even arrive until September 2012 as Apple has not begun ordering components for their next-gen iPhone, we wouldn’t take these rumors too seriously for now, however wonder what impact this would make on the smartphone market if true.

Have you been happy with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4’s cameras?

  • I think this would be a bad move for Apple and I hate them! I have Evo 4G with 8MP camera. I think it’s overkill for a phone. Not to mention, you have to have a pretty steady hand to take great photos. My Fuze was 3.3MP and took great photos. You have need 8MP resolution buy a real camera.
