Nexus 5 won't have MEMS camera, first batch order for the modules goes to Oppo


Last week's wild speculation that the Nexus 5 might sport a MEMS camera module was debunked by DigitalOptics themselves. The company sent us an official confirmation that they have nothing to do with the camera module in the Nexus 5, but it's rather just going to sport a Sony IMX179 sensor, like we thought after some additional digging. You can find the full press debunk below, but the gist of it is that:

DigitalOptics, however, is ready for mass production, and has their first client for a batch order of smartphone mems|cam camera modules, and you can never guess who that is. Why, Oppo, of course! The second most profitable phone maker in China has been churning our remarkable handsets lately, like the camera-centric Oppo N1 you see above, and we can't wait to see what it will do with the MEMS modules this time.
