Both companies provided the 5MP lens modules for the Apple iPhone 4, and thanks to the large number of orders from Apple, the two firms combined for a 27.5% marketshare last year. With the continued popularity of the Apple iPhone, if the report is legitimate, their combined share can only move higher this year.
While many different specs have been rumored for the Apple iPhone 5, the one constant has been the expected 8MP camera on the back of the unit. As early as May, we reported on speculation that the next gen iPhone would have an 8MP shooter. In June, Bloomberg also said that the iPhone 5 would feature an 8MP camera. You know that old saying about where there is smoke there is fire? In this case, you could almost bet the farm, that the Apple iPhone 5 will have an 8MP camera on the back.
