Apple iPhone 5S camera spotted and more interesting details about plastic iPhone 5C

Apple iPhone 5S camera spotted and more interesting details about plastic iPhone 5C
The affordable iPhone 5C has surfaced time and time again, and just last week the supposed camera for Apple’s new plastic and more affordable iPhone leaked out. That was big news as the image hinted the new plastic iPhone could have a great camera, similar to the one in the iPhone 5. Now, a week later, it turns out that the image that surfaced last week might have been wrongly referred to the iPhone 5C and instead be the camera for the iPhone 5S.

Why do we think so? After first leaking out on Chinese microblog Weibo, the camera module now surfaces in a much clearer picture on inventory seller Luna Commerce and this time it is labelled “APPLE IPHONE 5S REAR CAMERA ORIGINAL NEW.”

What does this mean? The first thing that comes to mind is that now it turns out we don’t really know much about the camera on the iPhone 5C. The plastic iPhone is expected supporting a single LED flash, while we have seen images of the iPhone 5S using a dual-LED flash.

Here’s where it gets interesting. The flash module on the latest leaked images seems to be completely detached and independent from the camera module. This could be interpreted as a hint that online retailer Luna Commerce is spot on and the images are indeed of the iPhone 5S camera. Moreover, all parts pictured below carry the official Apple part numbers starting with “821”, nearly confirming their authenticity.

Ultimately, this means the plastic iPhone 5C and the aluminum iPhone 5S will after all differ on the inside. Apple is said to have ramped up production of the two devices full throttle ahead of an official announcement coming sometime in September.

The funny thing about apple leaks is that they leak in parts and pieces and not the whole package.

"Ramped up production" Why this is going to be the worst selling iPhone to date.

Maybe in terms of market-share, but I guarantee you this will NOT be the worst selling iPhone to date in volume.

Like how the S4 was an S3 with a better screen, camera, and cpu/gpu, and how the Droid Ultra was a Droid Razr HD with a better screen, camera, and cpu/gpu, and how the G2 will be an Optimus G with a better screen, camera, and cpu/gpu.

"The affordable iPhone 5C has surfaced time" $490??? U call that affordable?? If it doesnt come up with a camera atleast the one on iPhone 4s it will no way worth $490. After all its just a rumour, I hope it To be remain as a rumour and finally come with a $350 or $390 price tag and with a much more premium look in to it and iPhone 5s with a slightly bigger screen at least a 4'3 and with higher resolution,better processor and higher amount of ram for better multitasking etc c'mon apple you can do it I know that you have such loyal and noble customers who buy any thing you produce and praise it to sky high so treat them loyally give them something new ,innovative , not just a reboot evey year.... you know you are a highly potential company....
