TheStreet quotes Rodman Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar saying that Apple has picked Sony's 8MP sensor for the 2011 iPhone. The move would displace OmniVision, Apple's current camera supplier to the iPhone. Since last year, OmniVision has been Apple's exclusive camera chip supplier to the iPhone. OmniVision is expected to supply a 5MP camera for the upcoming version of the iPhone due out this summer, said Kumar.
MacRumors notes that Kumar carries a mixed record in his previous predictions.
