DigiTimes reports that both OmniVision Technologies and Sony have won orders to supply an 8-megapixel camera sensor for the next-generation iPhone, with Apple's existing supplier OmniVision reportedly set to handle 90% of the load. Sony's potential role in supplying camera sensors for the fifth-generation iPhone has a rather long history, dating all the way back to an April 2010 analyst report claiming that the company had been selected by Apple to supply an 8-megapixel component, although that report suggested that Sony would be the sole, or at least primary, supplier. By this February, another analyst had reported that OmniVision would most likely be the exclusive provider of the image sensor for the next iPhone, although Sony could take a small portion of the orders. And in April of this year, Sony CEO Howard Stringer reportedly made comments strongly suggesting that his company is indeed sending image sensors to Apple, although some follow-up reports suggested that Stringer's comments had been misinterpreted.
