    3.2-megapixel camera confirmed for next-gen iPhone?

    The next iPhone should indeed have a 3.2-megapixel camera, according to a Taiwanese industry report. Market sources claim that OmniVision has received orders from Apple for 3.2-megapixel CMOS sensors, with the specific intent of use in a new iPhone line. Aptina and STMicroelectronics are also said to have been in competition to produce the sensors.
    OmniVision is additionally noted to have secured a deal to produce five-megapixel sensors for Apple, though for what device is unclear; the end product is expected to launch later in 2009. Apple may theoretically use the sensors in a new iPhone or iPod, but the company is also said to be working on devices such as a 10-inch netbook, which could also take advantage of a camera. The technology could likewise be interwoven with Macs and Cinema Displays.

    Apple readying two new iPhone models, says analyst

    Apple will shortly introduce two new iPhone models, tailored for different geographic markets, according to an equity research firm.

    That's a somewhat different perspective from others who have predicted that the recent preview of the iPhone 3.0 operating system indicates that a new high-end model will be unveiled about mid-year. Instead, Daniel Amir, semiconductors analyst with Lazard Capital Markets (LCM), says in his report that a high-end phone will be sold in North America and a low-end model in several fast-growing overseas markets, such as Brazil, China, India and Russia.

    The LCM analysis was picked up by AppleInsider's Katie Marsal.
    The North American model will have video support, a better digital camera and 32GB of memory. The low-end version will lack video support, and possibly lack a Wi-Fi radio, and have less storage.

    There's been speculation recently that several hardware IDs found in the 3.0 software beta hint at multiple new OS X-based mobile devices, including new models of iPhone, iPod Touch, and possibly entirely new products.

    In the report cited by AppleInsider, LCM's Amir says iPhone shipments are much stronger than expected so far in 2009 and will continue so. He writes that first calendar quarter shipments could reach 4 million units, in part because of an exceptionally strong March, possibly reaching 1.5 million units. While analysts had been expected quarterly shipments to reach 3 million to 3.5 million, Amir is predicting 3.8 million to 4 million.

    And he thinks that number could nearly double in the second quarter, though AppleInsider's Marsal noted the pace might not be sustained if buyers expect a mid-year release of a new model, and postpone buying the current iPhone 3G.

    The 3.0 OS release, due out this summer according to Apple, will offer more than 100 changes, and over 1,000 new APIs available to iPhone software developers. Among the base OS changes are support for copy/paste, and for being able to tether a laptop to the iPhone and use the phone to access the Internet.

    iPhone Video Recording Interface, Digital Compass, Voice Control and Auto-Focus Camera

    Since the release of Apple's iPhone 3.0 beta firmware, users have been scouring the configuration files looking for evidence of future iPhone capabilities. The possibility of video recording has seemed increasingly certain with files for video uploading and editing having been discovered.

    A new finding, however, should put to rest any doubts about whether or not Apple is planning to include video recording in future iPhones. This screenshot, which was discovered in the latest iPhone 3.0 beta, shows the interface Apple will provide for video recording:



    The interface shows the normal iPhone camera interface but with a switch on the bottom right which toggles between still camera photography and video recording. The video recording is not presently functional in iPhone 3.0 beta, and the interface is not accessible by default. Only when configuration files were modified telling the firmware that a Video Camera was present will this interface appear.

    Other interesting capabilities found in the configuration files include "auto-focus camera", "magnetometer" (digital compass), and "Voice Control".

    Apple is expected to release the final version of iPhone 3.0 this summer, and many believe that Apple will also introduce an updated iPhone around that time as well.

    One of our trusty ninjas just blessed us with some exclusive iPhone 3.0 shots. Things like detailing a video recording application, more settings options, an accessibility entry, and even showing that Apple could possibly be integrating voice dialing, too. Hit the break for the rest of the snappies!

    Rumor: Apple Expect 4 Million New iPhones Shipment by end Q2

    Together with the rumors on the new iPhone in the past few months, here is yet another rumor from chinatimes according to its source from iPhone component suppliers. According to its insider news, Apple has already ordered 4 million units of new iPhones and expected to receive the shipment by end of this quarter. These iPhones might be a combination of 3 new models, with one only supports EDGE wireless data connection, another one for 3G wireless data connection and one model made for China market (for China’s TD-SCDMA network?). There will not be iPhone Nano and the new iPhone 2009 will be similar to the current iPhone 3G, according to the report.

    Apple flash memory order pointing to 32GB phones?

    Apple's recent order of 100 million NAND chips from Samsung included 16Gb memory, claims an analyst from Lazard Capital Markets. The order was initially thought to have only 8Gb chips, the equivalent of 1GB each in terms of storage. With more 16Gb (2GB) memory however, Apple should be in a position to release 32GB iPhones, a move widely anticipated for this summer.

    The Lazard analyst, Daniel Amir, notes that while Apple could in theory stack the 16Gb chips in a fresh wave of 16GB iPhone 3Gs, the company has been pushing hard to clear out inventory with a series of promotions. These include carrier discounts, contract-free phones and early upgrades within contracts. The memory could also in theory be used in iMacs, but Amir observes that Samsung is Apple's main iPhone supplier. "Historically, Apple's orders with Samsung have been for iPhone flash, since Samsung has worked with Apple in developing special packaging for the iPhone," the analyst comments.

    The order could have the secondary effect of increasing prices in the rest of the flash market, potentially by as much as 20 percent, says Amir. Apple frequently produces such industry ripples, due to the quantities of memory it needs to satisfy popularity; another price jump could be welcome for memory makers, given an overall trend of decline in prices combined with the temporary effects of recession.

    TSMC and subsidiaries to benefit from launch of next-generation iPhone

    Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and two of its subsidiaries – packaging and testing house Xintec and color filer (CF) maker VisEra Technologies – are likely to benefit from their roles in the manufacturing of the next-generation iPhone, according to industry sources.

    TSMC have landed foundry orders for GSM EDGE power amplifiers, Bluetooth ICs and 3.2-megapixel OmniVision CMOS image sensor (CIS) used in the upcoming iPhone model, indicated the sources. Xintec will handle the packaging and testing service for the CIS whereas VisEra will manufacture on-chip color filters for the CIS.

    TSMC, Xintec and VisEra declined to comment on the report, citing customer confidentiality.

    The so-called "iPhone 3.0" reportedly will be launched by mid-2009, the sources claimed. Assembly suppliers will kick off shipments for the upcoming model starting from May, with the first batch estimated to be around five million units, the sources said.

    Apple Consolidating AV Cables Ahead of iPhone HD Launch

    Apple has advised Apple Authorized Resellers to begin placing on clearance both the Apple Composite AV Cable and Apple Component AV Cable. PhoneNews.com has learned that Apple will be consolidating these cables, ahead of the launch of the next iPhone.

    Both current cables were not well received by the public. The cables first added encryption chips, which (upon the release of iPhone OS 2.0) made it impossible to use other, cheaper AV cables with Apple’s most advanced mobile devices (iPhone and iPod touch). In addition, many were unhappy that the Apple Component AV Cable did not support composite output, forcing customers to pay over $100 for the ability to output to both HDTV and SDTV displays.

    Apple will remedy this with a cable, which is known simply as the Apple AV Cable. The cable will function similar to the Xbox 360 Component AV Cable. The consolidated cable will support both component and composite output, allowing users to plug in to both HDTV and SDTV displays without the need for multiple cables.
    The reason that Apple is doing this has been confirmed by PhoneNews.com. The next generation of iPhone and iPod touch will make broad and sweeping changes to HD display capacity on the devices. First, Apple will likely offer at least one version of the iPhone and one version of iPod touch with an even higher resolution screen, targeting both Microsoft’s Zune HD, as well as HTC’s Touch HD and Touch Pro2.

    However, Apple is also planning across-the-board output of HD video. Apple, realizing the lukewarm success of Apple TV, plans to focus both iPhone (and eventually, iPod) as the easiest way to watch HD videos from your PC.

    Currently the iPhone and iPod touch do not exceed 480i and 480p (respectively) in terms of video resolution. However, the next iPhone and iPod touch will enable full HD playback, with 720p and 1080i output modes.

    Multiple options will be given to users to get HD video onto their TV, via iPhone and iPod. First, consumers will be able to store HD shows on their devices directly. However, considering the limits of flash storage, this is a time consuming process. Enter Bonjour. Apple will also provide the ability for users to plug their iPhone into their HDTV, and gateway onto a user’s Wi-Fi network, and access their entire iTunes library on their HDTV.
    The end result is that a user can sit at their HDTV, using an Apple AV Dock and an Apple Remote, controlling their iPhone much as they do an Apple TV today. This ensures that a new iPhone owner will be able to purcase, for under $100, all the equipment needed to access (via the iPhone) all of their computer-stored HD content, on their HDTV.

    At under $100 (less than half the cost of an Apple TV), Apple will be able to take on low-cost video device, as well as game consoles, with competitive advantage. Consumers will now have cheap HD access to their entire iTunes library, as well as portable HD playback of shows, videos, and photos on their device.

    Apple has made great strides towards bridging the HD gap with content providers. The iTunes Store now accepts HD TV Shows from all major networks, as well as offering HD Movies. The latest iTunes update for Mac and PC also enables HD playback of rented movies (previously limited to Apple TV).
