Apple iPhone 5 Uses Sony Imaging Chip

Sony has recently tweaked the specifications of its upcoming imaging chips but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything major since Sony is one of the leading imaging chip-makers. It has been recently discovered that Apple’s iPhone 5 uses a Sony imaging chip to power all of its picture-taking-oriented stuff.

Above you can see a close-up image taken off of the imaging chip inside the iPhone 5 and, as you can clearly see, it is Sony branded. We’ve received hints in the past from Sony’s former CEO Howard Stringer that the company was the one in charge for supplying Apple’s imaging solution. However, the front-facing camera on the iPhone 5, as unveiled in the source link, is one made by Sony competitor OmniVision. Hit up the source link for more images.
