With Apple’s WWDC 2013 approaching fast, the general consensus that is also evolving is that the company will not be launching the next iPhone anytime soon. Instead, we will have to wait till fall 2013 to lay our hands on the device which, as per Apple, will feature some hot new features. A release date that is still some months away is also a perfect opportunity for the rumor mongers to be at their imaginative best as to what the new iPhone 5S will be like. Mentioned below are a few of the hottest rumors concerning the iPhone 5S.
To begin with, the new iPhone 5S is expected to sport a higher resolution display even as the screen size is expected to be the same at 4 inches. The bezel though is likely to be thinner than what the current iPhone 5 comes with. An edge to edge display is something that Apple has been working on though it could debut on the iPhone 5S itself. However, what surely will be the game changer here is the increase in pixel count to about 1.5 million to nearly about half of what iPhone 5 sports, something that can be termed as Retina+ Display.
Another cool feature that might first be seen on an iPhone is the fingerprint scanner which will add to the security of the device. A mobile digital wallet is also another feature that the iPhone 5S might include, together with NFC which surely will add to the smartphone’s appeal.
A new improved camera is also expected on the iPhone 5S, one that could see its resolution jump up to 12 or 13 megapixel from the current 8 megapixel. A dual LED flash is also being talked about, one that is could be seen stacked one on top of the other. Apple supplier of the rear shooter, OmniVision has stated they have successfully developed a new camera that is smaller than the current version while still being capable of shooting 1080p videos.
Another of the iPhone 5S’ cool new feature will be its OS, which in most probability will be the new iOS 7. Apple is expected to launch the new OS at its WWDC event on June 10 which will provide us with an idea of what it could bring to iPhone 5S if the latter indeed turns out to be launch device for the next gen OS.
