New iPhones to come with 3.2MP, 5MP cameras?

The iPhone 3G may be a high-end device, but, you have to admit it, its 2MP photo camera is similar to the cameras found in many entry-level phones today.

However, the new, third-generation iPhone, may come with a 3.2 Megapixel camera.

Or at least that’s what DigiTimes says. The Taiwanese website reports that OmniVision Technologies will be making the 3.2MP CMOS cameras Apple plans to put in its new iPhone.

Even more, it’s said Apple also landed orders for a 5 Megapixel camera that will be used in “another product expected to be launched later in the year”.

Could this mean we’ll see two new iPhones in 2009? Maybe an iPhone Nano alongside the successor of iPhone 3G? Or perhaps that 5MP camera will be used in a new iPod touch?

Well, no one knows for sure, but we can hope at least a 3.2 MP camera will be included in the new iPhone(s) – and that it will have both autofocus and flash :)
