Apple to boost iPhone 5 camera with dual-LED flash

Apple's iPhone 5 handset is to feature a dual-LED flash alongside an 8-megapixel camera, bringing it in line with other market leaders including Blackberry and Samsung handsets

Apple is set to up the photographic capabilities of its iPhone devices with the iPhone 5 reportedly in line to host a dual-LED flash alongside an 8-megapixel snapper.

Following on from reports yesterday that suggested the iPhone 5 is to be officially unveiled in September sporting the same 1GHz dual-core A5 processor chip as the iPad 2, tech blog Digitimes is reporting the next-gen smartphone will boast a dual-LED flash.

Whilst previous reports have claimed Apple’s eagerly awaited smartphone follow-up will sport an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording credentials, both features that are expected to bring the handset in line with the current market leaders, this latest leak marks the first reference to an upgraded flash offering.

Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology are all being touted as suppliers for the new iPhone 5 components ahead of the device’s expected autumn release alongside the recently unveiled iOS 5 operating system.
