Since the iPhone first launched, critics and users have often lamented what they deem to be the relatively poor picture quality of the iPhone. The current iPhone camera delivers 2 megapixel quality, and lacks the ability to either zoom or autofocus. Those complaints however, or at least some of them, might soon become a thing of the past given a recent report from DigiTimes which notes that Apple recently secured an order with OmniVision for 3.2 megapixel image sensors to be used in the next version of the iPhone.
Apple is largely rumored to be releasing the next iteration of the iPhone sometime this June, and as reports of upgraded hardware keep rolling in, the next iPhone model keeps looking better and better. Some of the already rumored upgrades for the upcoming iPhone include Video Recording capabilities, new and innovative battery technology, a 32GB model, faster Internet speeds, and of course, the new iPhone OS. Throw in an upgraded camera and the next iPhone is looking extremely attractive.
Interestingly, Apple is also reported have secured an order for 5 megapixel image sensors to be used in a product due to launch later this year. Might this be an iPhone Pro model of some sort?
