iPhone 5S arrives with some significant changes
iPhone 5S is expected to bring significant changes to the current iPhone 5 model. Today, we got some new information about the future handset. In a post on Sina Weibo (a popular network in China), the source revealed some interesting details about the next phone. As expected, the update of the iPhone 5 will be incremental, but significant. The information probably leaked from the Chinese supply chain and has nothing to do with the previous leak about the NFC capabilities of the iPhone.
So, the iPhone 5S will look almost the same as the iPhone 5, but inside it will be completely new device. It will have a new quad-core processor clocked at a higher speed, a 4-inch IGZO display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 and 2 GB of RAM (the current model has 1 GB). We mentioned earlier about the NFC capabilities of the phone.
Where is the difference? First, the new model will have an improved camera. The sensor will be 12 MP with a dual LED flash. It will probably deliver better indoor and low light pictures. Second, the display will be brighter and more power-efficient. Apple uses the IGZO technology from Sharp. The IGZO displays were used so far only in tablets and HDTVs. The iPhone 5S will be the first smartphone with an IGZO display.
Third, the new model will have a fingerprint scanner in the home button. This feature was expected since 2012. It could prevent unauthorized access and secure iPhone 5S from thieves, but the primary use will be to unlock your phone with your finger instead of entering the PIN. The upgraded iPhone 5S is expected to arrive in mid-September. We can also see some iPhone Mini during Q3/Q4.
