How A Weakening PE Market Serves As Another Sign Of A Weakening Economy

InvestAmid the turmoil in the public markets and the staggering macroeconomic environment, it should come as no surprise that the private markets are also struggling. In fact, there are some important links between private equity and the current economic environment. A closer look at PE reveals that the industry often serves as a leading indicator Read More, a Vietnamese blog claims that this information came from an inside source at iPhone camera module manufacturer named as Wonderful Saigon Electrics (WSE). WSE makes camera modules for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) already and therefore this information might really be legitimate.

This blog has managed to confirm last year that iPhone 5 would come with an 8-megapixel camera, when everyone else was predicting a 10-megapixel camera. Looking at the track record, and the fact that WSE indeed works for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), this rumor definitely deserves more attention than usual, and could be the real deal.

Looking at the camera module in the iPhone 5, it mostly went unchanged besides the addition of the sapphire glass to the lens assembly which would protect the camera against scratches. But given the competition from companies like Nokia, Samsung, HTC and LG, using a 12-Megapixel camera would make more sense for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Also the camera should be able to capture great snaps, with improved night time photo-taking abilities.

We’re already aware how Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One are pushing the limits, and it would be interesting to see what Apple would have to offer in the company’s new flagship phone – the iPhone 5S.
