OmniVision develops 8 megapixel CMOS sensor for cell phone cameras; iPhones 5 are candidates to receive it

Traditional supplier of sensors for the cameras of iPhones, OmniVision today announced the launch of the OV8820, a new CMOS sensor of 8 megapixels capable of recording videos in HD 1080p at 30 frames per second (frames per second, or fps), or 720p at 60fps.

Measuring 6.35 × 6.75mm, the OV8820 supports auto focus, generates RAW images and allows real-time processing to avoid the number of visual artifacts and a reduction in rolling shutter.

OmniVision does not reveal anything about its partnerships with gadget manufacturers, but, given its history, it will probably supply this sensor for the iPhone 5. Someone needing more megapixels than an iPhone 4 capable of providing?
