The next Apple iPhone will house a 3.2 megapixel camera, it has been claimed, in a move which would boost the handsets’ imaging capabilities.
According to a report from DigiTimes, the higher grade camera will be incorporated into the device after Apple signed a deal with OmniVision to supply CMOS image sensors for the phones.
The site also claims that OmniVision is the recipient of an order to provide five megapixel lenses for an unspecified forthcoming Apple product.
This has prompted speculation that Apple is planning to release a higher grade iPhone or that the five megapixel lens could be intended for iPods.
News of the deals between the two companies comes after the camera on existing iPhones was heavily criticised for what many phone enthusiasts regarded as its last-generation imaging capabilities.
O2 is currently the sole carrier of the iPhone in the UK, but rumours are abounding that Apple could be looking to partner with another mobile phone network for its next-gen handset.
