    Could we have more than one socket win inside the S4?

    Whose technology do you think allows this:

    Can all of this be done on one unit form INVN or would it take multiple sendors to do each of these tasks?

    • The gesture controls are handled by a combination of the front facing camera and a infrared proximity sensor. The tilt to scroll control is definitely powered by a gyro. The dual recording from front/rear cameras is probably Omnivision's (OVTI) ViV technology announced last Jan. Pretty cool stuff. Have not seen a teardown yet that lists specific suppliers other than a few obvious ones like QCOM and BRCM. I know the S3 had a few gyro issues, but I believe INVIN will be in the S4. Not convinced they will be in iPhone though, since it requires a different form factor than ST, and doubt AAPL will want to mess with that. But I suspect they will be in iTV smart remote (just an uneducated opinion).
