Apple is looking at a total overhaul of the cameras that are built into their iPhone with the flash on the rear camera set to be located away from the actual camera lenses.A case manufacturer has told Apple.pro that the changes will appear in the iPhone 5 which is due out later this year.
New pictures have emerged that shows what’s described as “iPhone 5” camera parts.
The rear camera’s part is the most telling as it no longer has a flash directly attached to the sensor and reinforced a new claim that the flash would be at the opposite top corner.
Apple.pro claimed that the photos show that the camera itself is more space-efficient overall without having a smaller lens or sensor.
A recognisably different camera array could be a sign of a switch to Sony sensors alluded to by that company’s CEO Sir Howard Stringer. OmniVision has previously supplied cameras for all of Apple’s iPhones.
