“We predict Apple(US) will launch new iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2(so-called Retina iPad mini) in 4Q13. As the tablet market becomes increasingly competitive , Apple could upgrade the camera as the selling point for the new iPad in a bid to increase competitiveness. We expect the upgrade will include 8MP camera , up to 5MP, and a larger aperture. Lens module ASP will rise  10 to 20 percent on this optic spec upgrade”, said Kuo.
