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...

I think people have no idea how much extra battery life is to be gained by using IGZO displays. Im talking up to 90% less juice to power the display. It's a huge deal. And if Apple is the first to use IGZO in a meaningful way it will put them in an extremely good spot. An iphone with 2-3 days battery life would have people lining up (as if that's not going to happen already).

Specs are good, screen is less but 12MP camera would be greater than 13MPs on other phones as I love only 8MP camera in iPhone 5.
