Front-facing camera for Apple iPhone 5S leaks

Front-facing camera for Apple iPhone 5S leaks
Just the other day, we showed you a leaked photo showing the back of what was purportedly the upcoming Apple iPhone 5S. Anyone who has ever seen an iPhone could instantly spot the change to a lozenge shaped dual LED flash. We also recently passed along pictures of the display assembly which showed that Apple was changing some of the internal components to open up some space, possibly to make the phone thinner or to add a new feature (fingerprint reader?) to the device.

Now comes some more leaked pictures, this time showing off what appears to be the front-facing camera for the Apple iPhone 5S. With the back camera receiving all of the attention and rumored to be a 13MP sensor, the front-facing snapper will probably also get a hike above the 1.2MP currently on the Apple iPhone 5. And for you kids out there, yes there was a time when the iPhone did not come with a front-facing camera. In fact, the Apple iPhone 4 was the first model in the series that offered it and not coincidentally, FaceTime debuted on that unit as well.

Besides the upgraded cameras and the dual LED flash, we expect the Apple iPhone 5S to offer a larger capacity battery (something else Apple might be doing with that extra internal space) and a faster A7 processor. September seems to be the consensus guess on when Apple will introduce the next iteration of its iconic smartphone, with the launch not too long afterward.

Thanks Anonymous Tipster!

A phablet and an iPhone is the best combo. Best of both.

Me too, I think the best part of Apple's Fall product line will be the new brute and beautiful colors. I'm so amazed at what Apple can do with plastic ribbon cables.
