iPhone Rumor of the Day 2/8 - Will 2013 Reveal an iPhone 5s AND an iPhone 6?
We doubt it, but who are we to not bring you the latest round of iPhone rumors? Exactly. As per CultofMac, sourcing a Chinese news site again "According to a source that posted on a Chinese microblogging site, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 have been spotted at Apple suppliers in China. Both models could release in 2013, said the source, named Old Yao on the site. The source also notes that the iPhone 5S looks a lot like the iPhone 5, while the five-inch iPhone 6 is even lighter and thinner than that."
How reliable is Old Yao? No idea.
Last week, Brightwire, has translated a new round of Chinese news stories and alleged reports from Hon Hai Precision Industry, Foxconn, Largan, Microelectrics Technologies and others.
What have they come up with? The "iPhone Math" which most Apple sites are speculating was mis-translated and actually means the iPhone Plus (a better name for sure). Reports believe that production will begin in March on components and April for the actual units themselves in time for a June launch. The device is said to offer a larger, 4.8 inch display (as compared to the current 4 inch).
Last week's round of Apple rumors are citing a forecast from KGI Securities analyst that's predicting an iPhone 5S this in June, along with an A7 speed upgrade, a fingerprint sensor, and a camera bump to an f2.0 aperture and a smart LED flash.
Alongside that, they're predicting a July release of the infamous cheaper iPhone that would be a low-cost version of the 5 in a plastic, colored case. Digitimes claimed that the new, cheaper iPhone will be closer in production to the iPhone 3GS which waaay back in 2009, had a plastic enclousure as well. iPhone 5 is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, completely redesigned to feature a stunning new 4-inch Retina display; an Apple-designed A6 chip for blazing fast performance; and ultrafast wireless technology.
