Next generation iPhone and iPad likely to score OmniVision camera sensors

The rate at which rumors about Apple products proliferate never ceases to amaze me. It has been only a few days since the iPad landed in consumer hands and already we have rumors about the next generation iPad. The rumor also includes some new speculation on what will be inside the next iPhone model.

The scuttlebutt is that OmniVision camera sensors will make their way into the next iPhone and iPad models. The lack of a camera is one of the big complaints about the iPad. We have talked about the OmniVision camera sensors before. They are capable of 1080p video recording at 30fps and 2MP or higher resolution still shots.

Electronista reports that OmniVision executives said that the firm might have made deals with Apple for its next generation devices. The camera sensors would reportedly be in the 3MP to 5MP resolution range. We heard back in December that the next iPhone would have a 5MP camera lending a bit of weight to the new rumor.
