New leak with specs for iPhone 5S appears hours before the big Apple event
We are now only hours away from the big event of Apple that begins at 10AM PT in San Francisco, California. If you think that the tech world is waiting quietly for the scheduled big event, you are wrong. The mobile arena is boiling with rumors, predictions, discussions and… leaks. Thanks to the Chinese website CTech, we can explore one of the latest leaks for iPhone 5S before it gets officially introduced. The website does not have an English version, so keep in mind that errors in the translation are possible. The source of the information compares the current flagship iPhone 5 to the upcoming iPhone 5S.
In terms dimensions of the body, iPhone 5S will keep up with the tradition set by iPhone 5 for a sleek, elegant panel made of aluminum with premium feel. The primary shooter of the upcoming flagship is 8MP as it is in the older sibling. The difference comes in the wider aperture of the new phone, F/2.0 while the iPhone 5 is armored with camera with F/2.4 aperture. The improvement in the aperture together with the dual-LED flash of the camera of iPhone 5S will assure much better picture quality in low-lit environment. If the translation from Chinese is correct, the new camera will be able to capture video 120fps at 60fps, something that the good ol iPhone 5 could not do. No surprise will come from the front-facing shooter. One of the most discussed topics around the upcoming flagship was the existence of fingerprint sensor. The answer is, yes, it is mentioned in the source. iPhone 5S will work with Apple A7 chipset under the hood. It will boast slightly better battery that will assure 250 hours battery life in a standby mode. The current flagship’s battery can keep the device alive for 225 hours according to official data from Apple.
We again remind you that the source of the information is not the most reliable, so keep your expectations open until the event put the end of the rumors and mark the beginning of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
