iPhone 5S and 5C Rumor Round-Up
Here’s a small round up of all the rumors of the device before we get to see the real deal after 2 days.
The successor to iPhone 5 will most probably be called iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5S might also be available in Gold or Graphite color. The Fingerprint Scanner, of course, will make its debut on the 5S. On the inside, 9to5mac had earlier reported that Apple is testing 64-bit A7 processor, which is 31 percent faster than iPhone 5. That is ridiculously fast, but it’s Apple, you never know. The Camera might be improved to 12 MegaPixel maybe, with a dual LED Flash. The screen resolution will most likely be increased as well; it might be greater than 720p but not Full HD. No changes in the Screen size.
And we might also have an iPhone 5C (Cheap / Color / China … ?), have your guess what the “C” stands for in 5C. The iPhone 5C will be available in variety of colors and will be a first ever Plastic iPhone, however, it is not completely made of plastic as some might say, only the phone’s rear will be of plastic material. iPhone 5C will retain the same screen size as iPhone 5S and will also probably have the same screen resolution. There isn’t much of news about its specifications. Another common aspect between iPhone 5S and 5C is that they both will run on iOS 7.
Is there any other additional feature or hardware addition or improvement you are looking forward to?
