Apple has reportedly recruited three suppliers to make the camera modules for the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup.

Supply chain sources told DigiTimes that LG, Sharp and O-film will be supplying the camera modules for the iPhone 12 models. Production of the camera modules is likely to begin in July.

LG is said to have secured orders for the iPhone 12 Pro models (6.1-inch and 6.7-inch) which are expected to have three rear cameras and a LiDAR scanner. The orders are expected to be about 35 to 40 million units. 

Sharp and O-film will be supplying the camera modules for the iPhone 12 models (5.4-inch and 6.1-inch) which are expected to have two rear cameras. The orders are estimated to be 50 to 55 million units. Sharp will take the bulk of the orders (60 to 70%) while O-film will take the remaining 30 to 40%.

The sources added that 70 million units of the iPhone 12 are expected to be shipped this year with the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models driving the bulk of the sales. The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is said to account for 30 to 35% and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro will constitute 15 to 20% of the shipments.
