More details and speculation continue to swirl related to Apple’s expected announcement later this month of next-generation iPads.
The often reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says he expects both the new 'iPad 5' and iPad mini to include an upgraded camera that would improve on the current 5 megapixel iSight camera to 8 megapixels.
Ming said in part:
"Apple could upgrade the camera as a selling point for the new iPad in a bid to increase competitiveness.
"We expect the upgrade will include 8MP rear camera, up from 5MP, and larger aperture. Lens module ASP will rise 10-20% on this optics spec upgrade."Source article
