Apple’s new iPhone 5 will come with camera sensors built by Sony, according to the company’s CEO.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Speaking with Walt Mossberg last night, Sony CEO Howard Stringer said that its camera sensor facility in Japan was affected by the recent earthquake and tsunami. The end result is that anyone getting sensors from that factory will experience delays, according to 9to5mac.com.
Paraphrasing his comments, Seth Weintraub noted Stringer went on to say that “Our best sensor technology is built in one of the (tsunami) affected factories. Those go to Apple for their iPhones… or iPads. Isn’t that something? They buy our best sensors from us?”
Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference is being held in June this year and while many people expected Apple to show off the iPhone 5 there, The Loop has learned that there will be no hardware released at the show.
