A new set of photos of the camera for the “iPhone 5S” allegedly display an internal design change where the LED flash component for the device may be completely separate from the lens.
Pictures of the alleged “iPhone 5S” component were published on Wednesday by Nowhereelse.fr, showing a standalone camera attached to a ribbon. That would be a change from the current iPhone 5, where the LED flash has a ribbon attached to the same component.
It’s been much rumored that the new iPhone will feature dual LED flashes for better illumination in low-light conditions. Past leaks have indicated they will reside in a pill-shaped window, just to the right of the lens.
This photo has been previously shown, but was reported to be of a part destined for Apple’s budget model iPhone expected to be released alongside the flagship model this September.
No indication as to the quality of the camera accompanied the photo. However, earlier rumors have indicated a 12-megapixel camera capable of better nighttime shots, and improved high dynamic range images will be a feature of the “iPhone 5S.”
