Apple may want to hide the FaceTime camera (and its flash) on future iPhones36
As you may know, the FaceTime camera of current iPhone models does not have a flash at all - but, as the patent application described above implies, future versions might include a flash. It looks like smartphone manufacturers are paying increased attention to front-facing cameras: HTC, Huawei and Sony have all released handsets that offer very capable sensors for your everyday selfies.
We don’t really expect the iPhone 6 (which should be announced this September) to have a hidden FaceTime camera, but models coming after it may benefit from this invention. What do you think, is this an idea that would make iPhones look better?
