Just off the heels of rumors pointing to Apple repositioning the iPhone LED flash to the top-right side of the next-generation iPhone, purported iPhone 5 camera parts have appeared online. The above image shows the iPhone 5’s front-facing camera sensor in addition to the rear-camera sensor. The front-facing camera piece is re-designed, but we can’t tell any technical details, but the juicy information comes from the rear-facing camera…

The back camera sensor also appears to have a re-design but is lacking two critical elements from the iPhone 4’s piece: the LED camera flash and the piece that blocks camera/flash interference. This works perfectly with the apparent fifth-generation iPhone case leak from today – and it seems possible that Apple is actually relocating the iPhone’s camera flash for their next iPhone. The image comes to us from the typically well-sourced Apple.pro. Thanks Weito.
