Upcoming iPhone 5S to have independent dual-LED flash?


In a new report published by French blog Nowhereelse.fr, they obtained images from Luna Commerce that show us some interesting points.  Previously, it had been rumored that the iPhone 5S will include a dual-LED flash to help with low-light improvement when taking pictures.

As you can see from the picture above, you will notice that the iPhone 5S camera is completely independent and has no connection to the flash.  While on the iPhone 5, the flash is connected to the camera module for dependence.  Apple is perhaps looking to re-route the power to the flash, perhaps dual-LED flash may require too much power to be routed through the camera?  If you have ever used your camera for an extended period of time, you will notice that it gets very hot, and the same goes for the flash.

One more thing that comes to mind is that since there will be dual-LED flash, a beefier processor, better graphics processor, then will the battery also become larger?  Battery life is one of the most looked-upon feature when it comes to selling a smartphone.  For example, Motorola is already offering 32 hours of battery life in their Droid series smartphone, the Droid Razr Maxx HD.

Below is a picture of what the iPhone 5S back could look like.
