Not long after unveiling that 24 million new iPhones might be shipped by the end of 2010, DigiTimes is now reporting that 3.5 to 4 million iPhone 4G units will be shipped this quarter – which likely means Apple intends to sell the new smartphone immediately after it announces it (June 7).
Up to 9 million new iPhones will be shipped in Q3, according to the Taiwanese website.
DigiTimes also says that Largan Precision has obtained certification for 5MP optical lens that will be used for the iPhone 4G’s main camera. Furthermore, Asia Optical obtained certification for VGA (0.3MP) optical lens that will be used for the new iPhone’s front-facing video calling camera.
These reports confirm some of the rumored features of the new iPhone, which should also come with a higher resolution display (possibly 960 x 640 pixels), a faster processor and better battery lifetime.
