Galaxy S5 camera will light up the room
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will have quite the camera, if all the rumors turn out true.
And the most recent tidbit isn't even a rumor - Samsung itself has confirmed that its next Galaxy flagship will feature a new "reflector-integrated flash LED" that will lend it some specific perks.
The new Galaxy S5 LED flash will grant the phone's camera a wider field of view, even in small spaces, and better daylight and nighttime photos, Samsung has claimed.
It will also reportedly ensure that every person in a photo, not just those in the center, is illuminated by the flash.
Samsung recently revealed a whole host of new handset camera LEDs, though the one with the reflector built in (called the 3432 1.8t (FH341A)) appears to provide the most benefit to devices.
It reportedly features its own optics and diffusion features.
After enjoying a brief head start Samsung will then sell the new camera component on the open market in the second quarter of 2014.
Galaxy S5 rumors
The Galaxy S5 was previously said to have a 16-megapixel camera, based on rumors dating back to August 2013.
But some reports show that the Galaxy S5's specs might actually be not all that impressive - though we won't know for sure until next week.
