DigiTimes sources say that OmniVision has secured 5 megapixel CIS orders for the next generation iPhone.
OmniVision provides the 3.2 megapixel CIS orders for the iPhone 3GS beating out Aptina Imaging which supplied the 2 megapixel CIS solution for the iPhone 3G.
The company is expecting orders for the CMOS image sensor to grow to 40-45 million units in 2010 from the 20-21 million estimated this year.
The order, being placed is for around 45 million CMOS sensors, which is double the estimated from this year. OmniVision is the same company which supplied the 3.2 megapixel CIS for Apple’s iPhone 3GS.
