Apple might be Using ‘Omnivision’ 10 MP Full HD Camera Sensor in the Next Generation iPhones

Omnivision is the same company which provides image sensor for iPhone 4 camera and rumored that it might also supplies Camera lens for Apple iPad 2. Now Omnivision has announced a new camera censor of 10 MP which has the capability of Full HD (1080p) Video Recording as well taking high resolution pictures at the same time. It’s a first native image sensor to have these features. The chip is built upon the company’s 1.4-micron OmniBSI pixel architecture, and it’s obviously aimed at digicams, camcorders and higher-end smartphones like iPhone.

Devang Patel, senior product marketing manager at OmniVision said:
“The OV10810 is a 10-megapixel image sensor that allows the simultaneous capture of full-frame, 10-megapixel still images and 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second, a unique feature that is exclusive to CMOS technology,”
“Allowing users to take pictures even while they are recording video is a key feature that bridges the gap between DSC and DVC, giving users the ultimate camera experience. Additionally, the sensor’s 16:9 aspect ratio reflects the increasing popularity of HDTV by capturing photos and video that align with the wide screen displays used in most of today’s TVs, notebooks and smart phones, further enhancing the user experience.”
Well for all iPhone lovers, don’t expect this image sensor in iPhone 5 or 4G because it’s already in testing stages so we might see it in future iPhones if Apple continue their contract with Omnivision.
