Sony making 8 megapixel camera sensor for Apple

Sony CEO Howard Stringer had a recent interview with Wall Street Journal, in which he mentioned that his company was supplying Apple with parts for a powerful, 8 megapixel camera. We are assuming, it is for the iPhone 5.
Here's a quote from the International Business Times:
"Stringer told WSJ how Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami had affected 15 Sony factories. One of those factories happens to be where Sony makes its camera sensors. That slowdown would hit Apple he said, though he didn't specify which product Apple was using them for."
Omnivision has been making cameras for Apple products all this time, but it seems that they won't make it in time, and Sony has won the spot this time.
