OmniVision struggling to supply enough camera modules for the next iPhone
So, where will Apple get the remaining amount of camera sensors that are supposed to make their way into the next iPhone? According to industry analysts, Sony will have to step in and pump out enough of them to make up for what OmniVision could not deliver. The bad news about the latter is that it will very likely lose its spot as Apple's primary supplier of camera sensors to Sony due to its failure to meet Cupertino's deadline.
The iPhone 5, or the iPhone 4S, as it may also be called, is expected to be announced later this fall and besides a better camera, it is speculated that it will also get a few other goodies, such as a bigger screen, a slimmer body, and a dual-core A5 processor.
