When trying to verify that the front camera has flash on the phones  J5 Pro , J7 and J8, return false. But the device has front flash available.
Dipositives with version 8 of android.

used code:
SCameraCharacteristics cameraCharacteristics = mSCamera.getSCameraManager().getCameraCharacteristics("1");
return cameraCharacteristics.get(SCameraCharacteristics.FLASH_INFO_AVAILABLE); 


CameraCharacteristics cameraCharacteristics = mCameraManager.getCameraCharacteristics("1");
return cameraCharacteristics.get(CameraCharacteristics.FLASH_INFO_AVAILABLE);

The return is always false, but the return should be true
