New iPhone 5S photos show us a graphite-colored version

There's no denying that we've seenquite a bit from the iPhone 5S, a fact that has put the ability ofApple to keep the lid onto new products successfully under question.We're sure you've already seen the trio of colors that have beenleaked so far: champagneplus onein black and one in white/silver, all three of which have beenconsistent with the info we've seen on the Apple flagship. That beingsaid, a new, grey or graphite-colored version with a black trim hasbeen unearthed earlier today by Apple insider Sonny Dickson. Thisfits extremely well with the latest intel hailing from Japan,which alleges a similar, albeit less visual story.

The now four versions of the iPhone5S are expected to go on sale sometimenext month. So far, the leaks amount to more significantimprovements than what Cupertino usually treats us with as far as 'S'versions of their phones are concerned. Namely, anew Apple-designed Cortex-A7 SoC is said to boost performance asmuch as 30% over its A6 predecessor. Moreover, a new and improved,quad-core PowerVR SGX 554MP4 has been included, along with thequicker 1GB of LPDDR3-1333MHz RAM (compared to the iPhone 5's 1GB ofLPDDR2-1066MHz RAM unit). The improvements don't end here, for analleged fingerprint scanner doubling up as the Home button is said tomake an appearance, with an improved, 12MP dual-LED flash shooteralso in tow.

Serious, dude? Then why bother to click on every article and comment? Nobody makes you surfing this website, right? Perhaps you should check or Those sites might fit you better if you don't want to read about other platforms than the one you are using.

Is there even a credible site that has everything except Apple because I can't find it. I pretty much hate Apple and all it stands for but as a tech geek I would still like to see what they bring to the table besides an article about a new color leak every day.

Pencil lead color! Now is only they would trim it with a horrendous yellow it'll bring me back to my elementary school days. Oh, and make the top pink! Hell yeah.

I hope this doesn't replace the black iphone...coming from an android guy i think the black iphone is incredibly good looking

True, but the benefit of this colour is that the scratches on the aluminum won't be as obvious as on the black one. I actually like this colour option better, if only for that reason.

But this looks really nice. The gold was gaudy, but this is classy. The iPhone 4 was the pinnacle of iPhone design. The 5 is slightly less nice looking, more toy like. This corrects that a little.

A7 64 Bit processor with quad core GPU graphics, fingerprint scanner, 128GB of internal memory, IOS 7 with a much improved camera sensor with excellent ecosystem and appstore, champagne gold and graphite coloured with a rumoured NFC (probably a bit too optimistic on that last one), I'd say this is a major overhaul. Yes it looks the same but there's no denying it's a complete overhaul at the same time internally, to whine about it being the same is just silly, just wait for the IP6 and a phablet version. Benchmarks mean nothing, it will still outperform it's rivals and load apps, play games better and load web pages faster 9 times out of ten. I only just wish for a 5.7 inch version!

Who cares what color it comes in? I don't know a single person with an iphone where you can actually see the color, they are all inside giant brick-sized cases.

^^^^So true. I don't care about color because I'd put it in as much of a protective case as possible. Keep the device itself pristine and mint! Resale value baby!!! LOL!
