Lumileds today announced Luxeon Flash, a new line of ultra-bright light-emitting diodes (LEDs) designed specifically for camera phones. The new LEDs are up to 12 times brighter than most current camera phone flashes, allowing consumers to take high-quality photos in low light at distances of 1 to 2 meters. The first camera phone utilizing a Luxeon Flash was recently introduced in Europe, and major manufacturers are expected to roll out models in the U.S. and Asia before the holiday season.
