Digitimes: Nokia opted for Samsung over ST as 2nd supplier of 5MP sensor for its camera phones, as Samsung is ahead of STMicro in pushing the products to market, according to Digitimes sources in Taiwan.
Nokia is still buying most of the low- and mid-range sensors from STMicro, while high-end comes from Omnivision and Aptina, according to the paper. Nokia's initial purchase volumes of 5MP imagers from Samsung are lower than the volumes purchased from OmniVision and Aptina.
Update: My sources tell that Omnivision supplies only low-resolution sensors to Nokia, while Aptina and Toshiba supply the high-res ones. I guess Digitimes meant that high-end phones have two cameras and Omnivision supplies sensors for the 2nd low-res camera for these high-end phones.
