Novatek Enters Image Sensor Market?

Digitimes writes that, according to its sources, Novatek plans to enter image sensor market with 5MP product. Novatek says that it's evaluating the feasibility of designing CIS product, bust so far has no operational plans for production.

It looks like Novatek follows the steps of its bigger competitor Himax seeking to extend its market beyond LCD drivers. Rumors that Novatek designs image sensors at TSMC have been circulating for quite a long time. However, most of the rumors, I've heard so far, told that the first Novatek's product would be VGA sensor for Chinese market.
