Apple marks September 10, 2013 to finally launch the much-awaited next-generation iPhone 5S and revelation of the alleged iPhone 5C. Know about the rumours and speculation of both iPhones coming your way in 2013.
iPhone 5S Facts
Same Design but Different Story
The iPhone 6 still remained mysterious and it seemed no one has ever seen such device yet. But Apple's launching cycle really points the iPhone 5S - following tradition with iPhone 3G, iPhone 4 - with essential changes such as the operating system version, the iOS 7.
Higher Storage Option - 128 GB
Smartphones commonly features 8, 16, 32 or 64 GB, but Apple might be boosting the next-gen iPhone 5S with 128 GB internal storage option. Since the company doesn't follow the trend of using microSD cards, it is only best to give users more storage than ever.
Better Camera and Dual LED Flash
Apple never fails to upgrade the camera of their iPhones for every iteration, and this time, iPhone 5S will feature an improved f2.0 aperture camera with low-light performance. Aside from that, the camera will be assisted by dual LED flash for better lighting capture.
Although not so new in the smartphone industry, fingerprint sensors built inside the device seemed to have died. Reports and rumours claimed that the iPhone 5S will feature a fingerprint scanner, resulting in the concave home button becoming a convex one.
The Apple iPhone 5S will have a third colour option from white and black, and it is a very attractive one - the Champagne Gold. The leaked volume buttons and back panels pointed towards this colour option being developed for the iPhone 5S.
iOS 7, Cortex A7 and NFC
iOS 7 is 100 percent sure to appear in the iPhone 5S, while the chipset will get an improvement from A6 to A7 and NFC is still probably out of the equation.
iPhone 5C - An iPhone Variant
Some rumours described the iPhone 5C as the cheaper version of the upcoming iPhone 5S but the "c" branding remains unknown. Is it "cheap", "colour" or '"polycarbonate"?
Plastic Construction with Colour Options
The iPhone 5C may have the worst kept secret - plastic back plate - which can already be found among Samsung devices. Although plastic, the iPhone 5C will be seen in a variety of vibrant colours such as red, green, blue and yellow.
Specifications Similar with iPhone 4s
Of course, if the iPhone 5C is cheaper, it won't have the same specifications as the iPhone 5S. It is rumoured that the iPhone 5C will have the iPhone 4S' 8-MP camera and dual-core processor and have old internals re-used from the previous iPhone generation. However, this remained to be confirmed.
Finally, a Budget-Friendly iPhone
Powered by the technologies found in the iPhone 4s and made out from cheaper materials compared to the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C will have a lower price tag, the first from Apple. Something they should have done before to match the increasing number of Galaxy devices.
