The next iPhone (or say iPhones) may arrive at the end of september ’13. Apple is holding an event in Beijing, China where the announcement of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C is expected.
Rumour Mill: The above image shows design difference between iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. So a slightly bigger screen with higher resolution is expected. Also, note that the dimensions are same.
iPhone 5S (Same), iPhone 5C (Cheaper).
iPhone 5S is ‘expected’ to be the improved (slightly) iPhone 5 whereas the iPhone 5C would be “the cheaper iPhone” with plastic chassis offering variety of colours. So Apple is finally coming up with a phone which fits into affordable or say mid-range phones.
It is rumoured that iPhone 5S will sport a fingerprint sensor on the home button (though this doesn’t excite me very much) providing higher security to phone’s data. Refer the leaked image of purported iPhone 5S home button.
In other news, China Telecom has already confirmed iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. China Telecom’s official website has leaked the phones’ images. Source: geek.
Let’s break down the name. iPhone 5S like iPhone 4S, where you can assume S as SAME. Literally speaking, iPhone 4S had no major improvements over the iPhone 4. So what to expect from iPhone 5S and 5C? Well, honestly speaking I don’t expect much more changes/improvements from iPhone 5S. Talking about the 5C, it is expected that phone will be around half the price of iPhone 5S. Specs of both phones to be revealed soon.
Also, there are some rumours about a 5-inch iPhone too and they might name it iPhone 5L (where L should stand for Large). Also, It is expected that Apple will announce the next-gen iPad, taking design inspirations from iPad mini. Have a look at the video below, showing the “leaked” chassis of iPad 5.
