Let the rumor games begin: next iPhone to sport more than one LED flash, and with blue tint to boot

The next iPhone is supposedly going to feature more than one LED flash "dot", with a flash displaying a slight blue tint, which is there to help with getting the perfect white balance measurements...

The typical guys who bash anything Apple and have nothing productive to contribute to the post. I for one am really curious how the sensors are going to create the different light intensities. It's an interesting patent, not the multiple lights, but the way the lights will be used.

if they still go for 4" screen then they would lose more market share. more and more people are finding out the big benefit of having a large screen and 4" nowadays is just too small.

Title should have been "Let the Apple Complaints Begin". Phone Arena you're doing a good job reporting a wide variety of news, keep it up. That's why every comes to this site. Android and Apple fans alike. Android fans are just a tad bit more vocal.

Was the HTC ONE X camera that good? Really i want to know. The reason I didn't get a One X was because alot of the reviews said the camera was overhyped. I was just reading a 2012 disappointment list and the One X was on it for it's camera. I haven't had a chance to mess around with one yet.

i made a booboo there i have the onex+

it basically has the same camera as the onex

and yes the camera is awesome...

not perfect but much better than the iphone5

the iphone5 is the most overhyped phone i've ever bought

especially since i paid $1200 for it...

disappointed is not the word i would use here

people need to remember that outside of america we dont get subidized phones, plus we have to deal with customs, plus taxes and VAT and there is no playstore

all in all I.ve spent over $6000 for these phones...

to rate these phones it would be

this of course is from MY personal experience with the phones

I agree! I have the Nokia Lumia 920 and it has by far the best camera on a smartphone. I don't have to carry a phone and camera at the same time now that I can have both in one device. Awesomeness!!!

Why the hell is this news? It's a freaking flash light just like any phone with flash.

Rumors to the next iPhone started as soon as the iPhone 5 came out.

This alone is not worth $199.99 on a contract in the States.

The Innovation Train left the Apple Station a long (long) time ago.

Apple is slowly digging their own grave.

Chinese phones have been coming with dual flash since ages.
Yet another innovation stolen and patented :)
