Samsung unveils new camera flash LEDs, will use one on the Galaxy S5′s 16MP camera

One of the most interesting things about the upcoming Galaxy S5 will no doubt be its camera, which is expected to have a 16-megapixel sensor that’s capable of impressive low-light photography thanks to Samsung’s new ISOCELL technology. Today, the company has announced new camera flash LED components for mobile devices, and one of the new LEDs is one that will be partly responsible for making the Galaxy S5 a stunning performer in low-light situations.

Samsung has unveiled several new LED components – each includes two reflector-integrated flash LED packages ─ the 3432 1.8t (FH341A) and 3432 1.4t (FH341B), plus a flip-chip flash LED 2016 (FH201A), as well as two side-view LEDs ─ the 3810 0.6t (MS062F) and 3810 0.8t (MS082F). These are geared at high-end devices, and are capable of providing a wider field of view (FOV) within a small space – the 3432 1.8t will be used in the company’s upcoming flagship, delivering “over 165 lux at 1A and a minimum CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 80, assuring quality photos in daylight and at night.”

  1. I still don’t think it would be better than a Xenon flash

    • Of course, pretty much the reason Samsung didn’t make comparisons. Really wish Xenon flash would make a comeback, along with a hardware shutter button, conveniences that manufacturers have forgotten in their quest to follow Apple.

      • You can use the volume buttons on the Galaxy S4 as a camera shutter button :)

        • Yes, on other devices as well, but nothing beats a two-step camera button. It’s simply a useful thing that’s being ignored by everyone but Sony (and all Windows Phone makers, since Microsoft makes the camera button compulsory.)

  2. Nice to see them update their LED flash for their upcoming smartphone!
