4th Gen iPhone Getting 5MP Camera from LG Innotek
Late Wednesday evening, news from the Far East began indicating that Korea's LG Innotek will be the formal supplier of 5-megapixel camera sensors in the 4th generation iPhone that may be introduced in a matter of weeks - perhaps even earlier than the initial late-June time frame. In the wake of the iPhone-Gizmodo debacle, some think Apple may get the "show on the road" sooner than expected.
The Chosun reports that LG Innotek has already started to produce the cameras and will begin "mass producing" them in the second half of 2010, after the new iPhone is officially unveiled. Naturally, the bump up to 5-megapixels will be significant and is widely anticipated by Apple fans who have long complained that the picture quality provided by the iPhone is sub-par in comparison to the high bar the device sets in other aspects for modern smartphones.
"Upgrading to a 5-megapixel camera will bring the handset into line with that offered by Google's Nexus One."
In addition to a new 5-megapixel camera, the next gen iPhone is also expected to deliver some form of camera flash functionality - at least that's what the evidence gleaned within the iPhone 4.0 SDK suggests.

I LOVE the new look. How can you not? It looks so much more professional.. Like the first gen iPhone did with the aluminum casing! I hope it stays this way.

About time. Pretty unsatisfied with image quality on my iPhone, let alone lack of flash. That alone makes this pretty desirable.

Don't expect a prototype, or pre-release to actually resemble the final product.... Come on people!!! Stop criticizing the looks of a device that hasn't even been confirmed. It's what's inside that counts!!! Don't get me wrong here... I love beautiful women, even if they're dumb as a rock! But we're talking about a new iPhone.... Quite a bit of difference here. I can't wait to see what is actually released.

As some have said on other sites, mp doesn't equal quality. Lens and processing have a lot to do with quality pics.
I hope that is the final iPhone design, I freakin love it.

And as for the design I love it, I was tired of the old 3G design. The new design is better and it's more like the new macs.
And this is a prototype of course there's gonna be some little changes here and there, like I would like the sides to be brushed metal but bit more shiny, not chrome though...scratches too easily. And maybe make it flush on the front.I'm MYAATT DAAAMOOON!!!

Hey I really didn't like this new "I" design,,,but it has grown on me over the last few posts!!!....the finished product should be a bit more polished for sure!..the only thing is here in Trinidad & Tobago our 2 Carriers (Digicel & Bmobile) don't use that mini Sim! So I guess I may not be able to get the new Iphone! and currently I'm stuck with this Locked 3GS "Iphone Ipod" lol!!......but I'm keeping the faith!

The Megapixel Myth (Just google, you'll find many more)
5MP is more than enough. "MP"s are a sales term which the masses grab onto as if its the defining factor of a camera.
Its really quite annoying.
Im not saying it has -nothing- to do with megapixels - but its not the defining comparison factor.
Ive seen 3MP camera's with better quality than 5MP cameras.
Other factors to consider:
- CCD chip
Of course, you can imagine trying to get this through the masses heads - so for marketing purposes, companies just boast their MP count.
Whats even more annoying is when its become such an MP war that it starts affecting the end product. Case in point, the new Canon 130is, has 14MP as opposed to its predecessor the Canon 120is (12MP) and they used the same internals (basically).
What happened? the 130is takes worse photo's than the 120is. I wont get into details - go read a review for that, but basically the CCD has to handle a bigger resolution now with the same chip and so it doesnt cope so well.
Here's to hoping I've opened the eyes of some

my samsung impression only has 3MP, but it's good enough that the pictures it takes can be used for a background for my 24 in desktop background.

Exactly - thats all you need really
Im just hoping for an upgrade in the lens / a flash and hopefully a better ccd. 5MP is more than enough. Anyone who thinks different should be looking at getting a DSLR.
Its a phone - not a camera people!mod edit/links removed

It doesn't matter anyway... megapixels only count when resizing pictures... not image quality. The current iphone has pretty good picture quality already with its current resolution.
