Posted on April 4, 2011

Sony CEO Howard Stringer may have slipped his tongue about the iPhone 5 when he said the company was supplying the camera sensor for Apple’s next-generation smartphone and that the delivery has been delayed because its factory in Japan has been damaged by the recent earthquake.

In an interview with Wall Street Journal during a paid conference in New York, Stringer reportedly discussed how Japan’s earthquake and tsunami had affected 15 Sony factories, one of which happens to be its manufacturer of camera sensors.

One of the attendees, who writes for 9to5Mac blog, reported that Stringer said its image sensor facility in Sendai was affected by the tsunami and delivering them to Apple would be delayed.

The report would indicate that Apple would switch image sensor provider for its iPhones from OmniVision to Sony.
