LG Innotek supply 5MP camera sensor to iPhone 4G
We have known that iPhone 4G will offer a 5MP camera with built-in LED flash, a considerable upgrade compared to iPhone 3G ‘s 2 Megapixel camera and the iPhone 3GS’ 3 megapixel one. Today you can add another detail to that. According to the Korean newspaper Chosun llbo, it is LG Innotek, a unit of LG Electronics, who are supplying the CMOS to the iPhone 4G. LG Innotek have been known as the producer of camera modules (apart from displays etc.) for mobile phones, laptops, automotive and security and it is just this year that they showed the signs of entering image sensor business as well.
Anyways that sounds like quite a good business deal and beyond doubt quite a decent reference for LG Innotek. But well, let’s wait a bit more for the official revelations on iPhone 4G and latest Apple marvels until Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 7-June 11.
