iPhone 5 rumors: next iPhone could be 7.9 mm thick, may feature HD-capable front camera

AppleInsider reports that KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo says the next iPhone will have a front-facing camera capable of HD resolution that will be moved from the left side of the earpiece to the center.

Kuo expects the back camera to have 8 MP sensor with a larger aperture of f/2.2.

The camera is also expected to use the OV9772 image sensor produced by Omnivision and have a 1/6″ optical format, 6mm CCM and 4.8 mm TTL.

In addition, the analyst estimates that the iPhone 5 will be just 7.9 mm thick, which makes it thinner than the current iPhone 4/4S.

Kuo also believes that the screen size of the next iPhone will measure 4.08 inches, on a resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9.
