Apple iPhone 5 Likely to be a Dual LED Flash Capable Device

June 23, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

In the midst of rumors of an iPhone 5 release in September this year, we have now stumbled upon some piece of info that tells us that we could also be looking at a dual LED flash capable device when it finally arrives. The grapevine is abuzz with such talk following feelers from companies like Edison and Lite that suggest that they have increased their shipments of LED flashes to major phone manufacturers.

It is also being said that Apple had reduced their orders for Lumileds high-power LED flash products from Philips recently and switched the orders for LED flashes to Taiwan companies. However, the companies involved have publicly denied making dual LED flashes.

The addition of a dual LED flash system is common place at this time, as many of the leading smartphone makers like HTC, Nokia and others have already proved the effectiveness of such a system. The images would be brighter, red eye and shadows would be reduced and more importantly the images would be more fair and fine.

To add to the dual LED flash rumor we have also heard that the iPhone 5 will come flaunting an 8 megapixel camera. These moves could well direct the iPhone 5 in direct competition with top Android manufacturers.

When Apple launched the iPhone 4, the company nonetheless pledged to focus on image quality and emphasized on low light performance as well as sharpness of the pictures.

The future dual LED flash and OmniVision sensors can guarantee clearer pictures in low light and could be more usable in truly dark scenes. Do you think the dual LED flash and the 8 megapixel camera could be the deciding factor for the iPhone 5’s success?
