iPhone 5 to Feature Dual LED Flash?

iPhone 5 to Feature Dual LED Flash?

Posted June 22, 2011 at 10:51pm by iClarified
Recent market rumors have indicated that Apple's next iPhone (Rumored iPhone 5), will likely come with a dual LED Flash. Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology are being suggested as potential suppliers. All the related companies have denied any involvement in the production of the LED flashes.

The rumors come amid market reports indicating that Apple reduced its orders for Lumileds high-power LED flash products from Philips recently and switched the orders for LED flashes to Taiwan makers.

Industry sources also state that Everlight and Lite-On have strengthened their deployments in the smartphone market for a while, so it would be no surprise to see their products in the next iPhone. The sources also noted that Edison Opto has a high chance of winning the dual LED flash orders from Apple because of their production of high-power LEDs and shipments to other handset vendors.

Weeks ago, a rumored case leak of the iPhone 5 featured a relocated flash opening. However, this new information could mean the relocation was actually making room for the dual LED Flash.

Wow! How... advanced! What a breakthrough. What's next? Flash support? Honestly, I am sick and tired of Apple's policies. I will no longer dish out a lot of cash to buy a device which I cannot really "own".
