iPhone 5 rumor overload?  Then you’ll probably want to skip over this little tidbit.

According to Digitimes, Apple’s next iPhone will have two LED flash bulbs.

Recent market rumors have indicated that Apple’s iPhone 5 is likely to come with a dual-LED flash with Taiwan-based LED packaging firms Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology being pinpointed as potential suppliers. The rumors come amid market reports indicating that Apple reduced its orders for Lumileds high-power LED flash products from Philips recently and switched the orders for LED flashes to Taiwan makers.Edison, which is specialized in the production of high-power LEDs, has begun shipping its LED flash products to branded handset vendors and therefore has a high chance of winning dual-LED flash orders from Apple, the sources noted.

Recent “iPhone 5 cases” have had the flash on the other side of the case but theoretically those flashes could be dual flashes.  Or maybe LEDs on both sides?
