Apple iPhone 5S camera to arrive with F2.0 aperture, new home key design losing the square box

Apple iPhone 5S camera to arrive with F2.0 aperture, new home key design losing the square box
A Japanese Apple-centric blog that has leaked quite a few correct predictions on future iPhones and iPads, has gotten a hold on a source that claims the camera of the iPhone 5S will still be 8 MP in resolution, but come with a hearty F2.0 aperture, like on the HTC One. This would undoubtedly equip it better for the fight against all the low-light heroes that are pouring left and right from the Android and Windows Phone camps.

The sources also confirm that the "premium" iPhone 5S will sport the new A7 chip, and come in three color options, losing the iconic black this time - dark grey, white and that limited champagne gold one we saw not long ago. A changed home key is also corroborated, with the addition that this time the rectangular box that we had drawn on all iPhone convex home buttons so far, will be gone with the fingerprint sensor winds.

As for the "budget" iPhone 5C, the sources reiterate a polycarbonate/fiberglass fusion for the chassis, with an end result that seems rather glossy, as you can see in the leaked high-res pictures of the green version. The source also confirmed that iPhone 5S and 5C will indeed be the retail names of the two devices, but we'll know for sure when Apple finally unveils these two.

You keep saying that, like its something secretive. Dude everyone knows its plastic, that's part if its lower cost. Are you like 12, or something?

Now it is being officially acknowledged. There have been multiple leaks of the 5C retail packaging. 5S, while not acknowledged, continues the concept that started with the let-down that was the 4S.

Nice thing to hear that they are doing some changes atleast to the Home button. I think some of the iPhone designers are back from holidays. :)

Good but 13mp should have been much better. But either way i am pretty sure it will sell like hot cakes. and its good to see apple trying to improve their product considering improvements of iOS 7 over 6 (mutitasking) bring something revolutionary to the table as once you known for and now your being laughed for... Shut haters mouth..

first of all I think 8 megapixel is enough for that sensor size.. 1/3 inch is really small . and 1.4 micro meter pixel is the limit with current CMOS technology.. Galaxy S4 produce a good looking image just because of its highly optimized algorithm with fake detail.. just look at connect.dpreview.com samples and you see that you cant read text on the studio shots.. because its a fake detail (noise reduction and then sharpening algorithm results in loss of detail and producing unrealistic sharp pixel patterns) second of all , you really think 13 megapixel is really so much more? just add 500 pixel to the height and width and there you go.. you have a 13 megapixel image..

I understand its better to have an awesome 8mp camera which takes superior picture than 13mp or 16,20,41mp at least on smartphones but some people like hear or have higher number. for them it does matters eg:do we need 1080 screen on a 4'7 display?? No. most humans wont be able to identify the difference by their eyes. But they still choose 1080p over 720p. But the truth is its just a marketing techniques. And everyone knows how much apple's and Samsung's success has to do with marketing right?? if apple decides to go with a 13mp sensor and managed to achieve better results than others(competitors) i wont say no..!!!

you are right about a marketing aspect of that number.. seriously .. why would you put 41 megapixel on a huge sensor and make it less capable.. the answer is .. because only 1 percent of the market UNDERSTAND that 1020 has a huge sensor.. but all of those millions of casual customers understand what megapixel means.. its really sad ... because the people that care about image quality wont get what they want anytime soon.. for now . the only solution is Optical image stablization - new color filter pattern(like omnivison and aptina clear pixel) - better and faster lens with f/2.0 or even more - better algorithm like the one in GS4 ... etc

they're ditching sony's sensors then?

15. yudi.nemesis unregistered

Lumia 920/925/928 use Sony 8MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture, maybe Apple will use the same sensor.

In the words of Phil Schiller, "Can't innovate anymore, my ass." If this is all you'll have Apple, then no... no you can't.
