Apple iPhone 5S front panel snapped next to the iPhone 5 one, sporting a new ribbon cable
A phone parts distributor has gotten a hold of iPhone 5S front panels, and says these are about to cost $240 a pop. They have also been snapped next to the iPhone 5 front assembly to visualize the differences.

It seems there aren't many of them, save for the altered ribbon cable, which seems to be longer and less wide in the iPhone 5S. 

The same goes for the bottom part, and the whole kit indicates that externally we aren't about to see many changes in Apple's upcoming flagship compared to last year's iOS finest, just as speculated.
