  • Next-Gen iPhone Part Suppliers?


    The DigiTimes has published a list (image above) of what it says are the suppliers of components for the next generation iPhone due in June. Included on that list is a 3.2 megapixel camera which is a nice improvement over the current model's 2 megapixel camera.

    TSMC have landed foundry orders for GSM EDGE power amplifiers, Bluetooth ICs and 3.2-megapixel OmniVision CMOS image sensor (CIS) used in the upcoming iPhone model, indicated the sources. Xintec will handle the packaging and testing service for the CIS whereas VisEra will manufacture on-chip color filters for the CIS.
    Also, according to the report the initial batch of the new iPhone will be a whopping 5 million units. Apple obviously expects the third-gen iPhone to be a great success.

    The so-called "iPhone 3.0" reportedly will be launched by mid-2009, the sources claimed. Assembly suppliers will kick off shipments for the upcoming model starting from May, with the first batch estimated to be around five million units, the sources said.

      Camera?

      does this mean that there is going to be a low rez on the side facing the user? or am i just reading that wrong?
      I think the Omni Vision provides the lense and Largen Pricision provides the camera. That's what I think

      I would like to state, that megapixels don't matter all that much when it comes to camera phones. Surely, you want to be concentrating on the chip and lens as much... If they're crap but you have a 5 mp one well...

      I could care less about how many megapixels the camera is just give me more RAM and I'll upgrade in a heartbeat.

      I watched the Palm Pre multitasking and it had me wishing the iPhone had those capabilities. I can barely listen to the iPod and run an app without it crashing on me.

      You can't be serious. 5 megapixels or 50 megapixels will never make a cell phone camera great without autofocus and some other variables coming into play. If you want a 5 megapixel camera so badly, go buy one because no cell phone camera will ever compare to a real dslr one.

      I hope that the Dev Team can somehow unlock the CDMA version iPhone to Verizon. That would be so amazing!!

      So you want a phone that will make your blurry pictures even bigger?

      I'm perfectly fine with a 2.0 MP camera. 800x600 is a decent size. I just hate the quality of pics it takes if you're not perfectly still.

      i think that those are indeed two camera's , looking at the two websites: omnivision with it's 3.2 15fps low voltage camera and largan's cheaper 1.3 or 2.0 camera. Could it be that the 3.2 camera be used for 3g iphone updated and other 2.0 camera for other 2 phones? Lets hope for the best....

      Camera seriously needs autofocus.
      Even if it comes with everything else i want, if there's no autofocus...screw buying the phone.

      well!!! look at it this way! if we do forget, you can look forward to be thawed for the 4th gen iphone or worst case scenario in 500 hundred years, by then the iphone will look similar to borg like contraptions. Apple's future slogan......"resistance is futile"
