What camera is an iPhone 4s using?

In summary, the iPhone 4S camera uses Omnivision's OV8830 sensor and a five-element lens that offers 30 percent more sharpness. This information was confirmed by blogs and a plant tour of a Japanese company. It is not certain if the company makes the entire image sensor for the iPhone.

According to some blogs it's Sony
I've been to a plant tour to a Japanese company once and they told us they make parts for the optics of the iPhone. Not sure if it's really the entire image sensor they are making and if it's for iPhone 4s
