iPhone 5S Top Strip Highlights Dual-LED Camera Flash

We’ve already seen plenty of photos suggesting that the iPhone 5S will pack a brighter dual-LED camera flash instead of the single LED flash on every other model. Now, two new parts spilled by back up those other rumors. We can see the hole for the camera lens in addition to the oval-shaped hole where the dual-LED flash module will fit in. Oddly, we only see modules for the black and white iPhone 5S, and not a plate for the rumored champagne gold color.

In a dark situation, the more light you have with a flash the better – at least, that’s how it works if you don’t have really amazing low-light performance in the first case. That’s very likely why Apple is adding a second LED to the camera this time around. We’re also expecting an f2.0 camera module for taking in more light, which should help in dim conditions anyway, and an 8-megapixel sensor.

An earlier report today seemed to confirm that the next iPhone will indeed carry the iPhone 5S name. Additionally, a report over the weekend claimed that Apple will hold a press conference to announce the new devices on September 10. MacRumors
