Another leaked Apple iPhone 5S photo shows dual LED flash

Another leaked Apple iPhone 5S photo shows dual LED flash
We've seen a couple of leaked pictures purportedly showing the back of the Apple iPhone 5S and right away, the dual LED flash stands out. On Saturday, another leaked photo of the next iteration of the Apple iPhone appeared with a clearer view of the new lozenge shaped dual flash. If the camera is the new battleground on smartphones, offering an updated flash might be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to improvements made to the rear camera on the iPhone 5S. One source says that one of the lights in the dual flash will feature a blue tint in order to keep the white balance lined up.

Besides the new 13MP camera, we should see a new Apple A7 processor under the hood, an improved battery, and the long-rumored fingerprint scanner. The latter is the rumor that just won't die. The screen is expected to remain at the 4 inches introduced by the Apple iPhone 5 with the same materials and design with perhaps a little thinner footprint. Of course, iOS 7 will be installed out of the box.

When the Apple iPhone 5S arrives late in Q3 or early in Q4, it could have a side kick in the low priced Apple iPhone. Aimed at emerging markets where the price of an iPhone makes it hard for consumers to buy, Apple has been trying to decide where to cut corners and where to leave things as is. We could see 8GB of native storage inside a thicker, plastic case and a rear camera less advanced than what will be on the new Apple iPhone 5S.

I think other companies should learn the meaning of "Innovation" from Apple :p Example: iOS7 ----> Android + Web OS + WP8 + BB10 etc. And with iPhone 5S they will change the way humanity use a cell phone :p All over again hahahahha

True that. Who else could have thought odd having a dual flash? I hope there is a patent application for this revolutionary idea.

looks like the original atrix must have been apple's reference device. First the finger print scanner now the dual flash.

Ever stop to think, that the dual led flash is there to simply enhance night time performance?

Soon they will 'INNOVATE" 5" screen and in couple of years 5+' screen. This is real innovation.

Did anybody asked you something?I5 has one of the best cameras on the market among with Lumias 92X.Stop bashing Apple,idiot. I am an Apple user but I've never hated Android,in fact I have the Nexus 7 and I can say that it is like a child compared with the iPad Mini.

Yes, iPhone 5 has one of the best cameras on the market. And I guess you're new here, you haven't see me compliment Apple, do you? As I said before (probably you haven't heard before because you're new here), I love every manufacturer, including Apple, how is "shut up and don't take my money" called bashing, wow, looks like somebody is butthurt and can't take a joke. That's why you butthurt fanboys are annoying, you fanboys don't even know what is bashing and joking. Yeah, Phonearena is not a site to tell jokes.
