One of the leading Smartphone manufacturers, Apple, is indeed hell bent on dominating the Smartphone market. One would expect them to at least hold off on manufacturing a new phone so soon after their last release. Well, it seems that is not part of their ethos. Only 6 months after iPhone 5 was released, fresh rumors were hitting the market that a new iPhone was in the process of being manufactured. If this rumor was true then the most probable phone to expect is iPhone 5S. This assumption is largely based on their past trend of releasing the ‘S’ range soon after the original model.
The rumors are not all centered on iPhone 5S, there are some who believe that Apple is working on iPhone 6. This is not impossible as it would be an appropriate response to Samsung’s Galaxy S4. However, iPhone 5S is the more likely of the two. As it was in the previous ‘S’ phones: iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S, the changes that would be made to the phone are not drastic enough to deem it a new phone altogether. iPhone 5S should have a few hardware improvements and some software tweaks but nothing too major. iphone 11
iPhone 5S: Release Date
Rumors concerning the release date of iPhone 5S are all over the place with some saying that we should expect a spring 2013 release and some arguing that it will be much later than that. The most consistent rumor, and this is what we can bank on, is that iPhone 5S will be released in 2013. Some of the sources are claiming that the manufacturing process of iPhone 5S began in March, and as such we should expect a June release.
iPhone 5S: Display
Apple is going to fit a Super HD screen on iPhone 5S, and according to the China Times, it will also feature a ‘Touch on Display’ with a 10-Point multi touch panel. It should, however, be noted that China Times have not always hit the mark with their speculations.
iPhone 5S: Design
As earlier noted, the design of iPhone 5S is not expected to veer so much from the course taken by iPhone 5. The chassis is definitely going to be the same, unless Apple has a wild card up their sleeves which is somewhat unlikely.
It has however been rumored that Apple are seeking to procure a cheaper plastic from their usual preference. This, of course, is set to reduce the cost of the phone they would be making. There are, however, rumors that suggest that this move has nothing to do with iPhone 5S. In fact, many are of the belief that Apple are working on a cheaper brand dubbed iPhone Math. The story is that this phone is designed to cater to the needs of a different market base for Apple’s usual customers.
