Apple has Placed Orders for 3.2 Megapixel Camera Sensors for Next Generation iPhone

DigiTimes is reporting that Apple has placed orders with OmniVision Technologies for both 3.2 and 5-megapixel camera sensors.

They are claiming that Apple's new iPhone which is speculated to be released in June will include the 3.2 megapixel sensors and the 5-megapixel camera sensors are for a separate product which will be launched later this year.

DigiTimes have reported that:

"OmniVision has received 3.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor (CIS) orders
for Apple's next-generation iPhone, according to market sources. The
company is also said to have secured 5-megapixel CIS orders for another
Apple product expected to be launched later in the year.
"

This rumor is in line with the news and rumors we have heard about Apple's next generation iPhone. iPhone firmware 3.0 beta has already revealed an interesting screenshot which suggests that Apple's new iPhone could come with video capabilities.

AppleInsider had claimed last week
that as per their source (who's proven extremely reliable) has informed them that Apple will be introducing video
recording capabilities in their next generation iPhone and users will also be able to take higher resolution photos.

I'm quite confident that Apple's new iPhone will have an improved camera (hopefully with flash) especially since they didn't upgrade the camera in iPhone 3G (2nd generation iPhone) so an upgrade is long overdue.

Do you think a 3.2 megapixel camera is good enough? We are curious to know what you think in the comments section below.

Thanks Egypt for the tip!
