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. 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.
The iPhone 5 is also expected to deliver an overall improved camera experience by featuring an 8-megapixel sensor, though it’s unclear whether OmniVision, Sony or Largan Precision would be the suppliers of camera image sensors for the iPhone 5.
Dual-LED flash in iPhone 5 will surely offer wider and brighter light coverage, which could be an important advantage when taking photos in completely dark areas or low-light situations.
