One of the more notable news that concerns the upcoming Apple iPhone (let’s just call it the iPhone 5 for convenience’s sake) would be its September 2011 release date. That ought to get you to sit up and take notice, what with an A5 processor which is similar to that in the iPad 2 alongside an 8-megapixel camera crammed inside its presumably unibody form factor. Well, here is a new rumor that has started to circulate – we are looking at dual LED flash in the iPhone 5 – although nothing of that sort has been confirmed just yet, but Taiwan-based LED packaging firms Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology have already been speculated to be the most likely suppliers of said dual LED flash since they all do produce this particular smartphone part.
Just how the heck did this rumor come about? Some folks thought so because market reports do point towards Apple reducing its orders for Lumileds high-power LED flash products from Philips recently, having switched orders for LED flashes to Taiwan manufacturers instead. Do you think dual LED flash would be the tipping point for you to purchase an iPhone 5 when it comes out?
