The Apple iPhone 5S will likely arriving in mid-2013, and, in anticipation of the big reveal, another set of leaked specs have been revealed. The new leak matches a similar set of specifications that were outlined in February.
According to DroidGator, the iPhone 5S will be powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz A7 processor paired with PowerVR’s quad-core SGX554MP4 graphics. The device also features 2GB LPDDR-800 RAM.
The person who leaked the information also supplied a photo of the device’s motherboard and claimed that Apple Siri technology will be a major focus for iOS 7.
News of iOS 7 shouldn’t come as a surprise. Each major iPhone release has featured major upgrades to the tech giant’s mobile operating system.
If the leaked photo is correct, it would appear to show that Apple is aiming for only a modest hardware upgrade. The devices motherboard is similar in size and shape to the iPhone 5.
Several rumors have claimed that Apple will slightly increase the side of the iPhone 5S, but that rumor does not appear to be supported by currently leaked photos.
With the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S IV about to cut into iPhone 5 sales, the Cupertino-based tech giant could use a big win right about now. The question becomes whether or not the iPhone 5S and a new low-cost iPhone will be enough to excite customers once again.
Do you think the Apple iPhone 5S is going to surprise customers, or does the “S” in its name suggest a modest increase in usability over its predecessor?
