New iPhone 5S photos appear, specs hint at 12 MP camera, higher CPU clock, quad-core GPU

The claimed specs accompanying them say that we'll get a 4" 1136×640 pixels IGZO display, meaning high brightness at frugal battery consumption, the same A6 SoC like in the iPhone5, but clocked higher, and a quad-core PowerVR SGX544MP4 GPU, instead of the tri-core unit we have now...

Was hoping for the A7, is this for the Asia model only or is the A7 not yet ready for prime time?

S edition get tweaks. The big spec jumps go to the non-S edition.

The 4 had an A4, the 4S had an A5 and then the 5 had an A6. It only makes sense to make the A7 for the 5s unless there are production issues.

NFC now after they just announced Air Drop and made fun of running around bumping phones? I don't think so.

If they try to do "beaming" with their iPhones that would be a big slap on their face for making fun of "bumping" phones to share data.

But Android and Windows 8 phones can also send files via bluetooth and some via wifi direct, so no bumping phones as well.

As good as the iPhone 5 is, this can only be better. I'll be getting two, AT&T white 128 gig and 32 gig for her.

Sony has been hitting homers lately if you ask me. It'll be worth it long as its what you want, user experience wise. Go for it. iPhones are my favorite not cuz I feel they're so high and mighty, but because I simply prefer the end user experience. Specs only matter when it all comes together seamlessly.

I don't steal, and that's what she asked for. I'm sure you didn't consider that.

So, will the 12MP camera include any real innovation like OIS, oversampling, etc... or is it just a megapixel increase?

Still below Hd screen in fall 2013. Not to mention iOS 7. Ugh. I really pity people who have invested dozens if not hundreds of dollars in the apple ecoprison.

Pity them for what? For buying what they like/want, and liking it? For not being pressured into buying what others feel they should? I use both android and iOS, and wp8 if you count my fiancés 8X. I simply prefer iOS as my daily driver...what's wrong with that? You made your choice to switch to android, and that's fine it's a great OS. Let others enjoy what they want. Why pity choice, isn't that what android nation raves about? I guess choice only matters to you, when that choice is android.

Do tell me something, darkkjedi - why are you so compelled to defend Apple at every turn? I mean - I'm just expressing my opinion here. Why do you care about what I say so much, eh? :)

Why are you so compelled to destroy them at every turn bro? And it's not that I really care about what you say, but this is the comment section of a tech site, is it not? Your views are based on a double standard ilia, people like their choice of iOS for the same reasons you like your choice of android, it works for them. You however won't accept that from an iOS user, you have to lash out at them. When someone challenges you, you respond the way you have. I say once again, just as you did when you used and defended apple tooth and nail. Let those who choose use, and enjoy iOS, enjoy their choice, just like you enjoy yours. Don't pity them, pity yourself for being hypocritical.

You're starting to revert back into an idiot dude.

56. ilia1986 unregistered

People change their opinions, as I did in the past regarding Apple. Why do I attack Apple? Easy - it's fun. I really do get a kick out of it. Many on this site do. I don't lash against iOS users. I just feel compelled to strike against the company which I loath so much in this comments section. What's in this for you, though? Why do you feel the need to defend Apple? Do you REALLY love them that much? I mean - if someone said something negative about Android - I wouldn't necessarily defended Android by responding to his\her comments. God knows this site is flooded by trolls and whatnot.

True and my love is for my family, not apple. I just feel its about choice. Also what good is it to bash a 400billion dollar company?

Why you trolling so much? Exynos..WHAAAAA... Quad core...WHAAAAA... I don't care how much cores have my phone, but how it works. remember the words of Steve Jobs: It's not about MHz number... it's how the software use it. The same is now with the phones... LUMIA 1020 is still not present. iPhone 5S/6 too.. How you judge them? Do you have a crystall ball?

This SoC will destroy every android device in terms of speed. 5S will be a beast.

My iPhone 5 always scores between 600-700 ms on Sunspider with a dual core 1.3ghz processor and in my opinion that tells me that Apple is doing something right.

Why wouldn't it! it's an App-Launcher device that only slides left to right and is still half matured. Dosen't require alit of resources! ®
