A recent report claims that Apple’s upcoming iPhone handset could feature a dual LED flash, which would allow users to take good quality images in low-light conditions.
Previously, we saw several iPhone 5 cases that appeared to feature a space for a relocated flash unit (which would sit opposite the camera unit, on the other side of the handset). Now, DigiTimes claims that Apple’s fifth generation handset will feature dual LED flash:
Recent market rumors have indicated that Apple’s iPhone 5 is likely to come with a dual-LED flash with Taiwan-based LED packaging firms Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology being pinpointed as potential suppliers. All related companies have denied they are involved in the production of dual-LED flashes.
Personally, the only issue I have with the iPhone 4′s camera is its performance in low-light conditions. While HDR mode can help out with this issue, dual flash really would do the trick. Apple is also expected to improve the quality of the built-in camera with the fifth generation iPhone, possibly increasing the quality of the camera to eight megapixels.
If you ask me, camera improvements are a dead-cert: Even if Apple isn’t planning on releasing a revolutionary iPhone later this year, increasing the quality of the handset’s camera is an easy upgrade to make (along with adding a new processor). Obviously, we won’t know for sure until Apple announces the handset (hopefully in August or September). Until then, all we can do is speculate.
