The next Apple iPhone looks set to feature a five-megapixel camera, which could attract consumers looking to get money for their old mobile phone.

People looking to upgrade their handset could be tempted to choose the Apple product once the new version of the next-generation phone is launched.

Digitimes reports that the iPhone 4 will benefit from technology provided by Omnivision - a company that provides apple with image sensors - as a contract has been sealed between the two businesses.

Apple may hope that the deal will help it to compete with new smartphone competition in 2010.

It is also possible that the company may consider using some form of flash to further improve the capabilities of the camera.

Omnivision predicts that they will supply Apple with 40-45 million units in the next year compared to an estimated 21 million this year.
