iPhone 5S Specification Documents Show 8-Megapixel Camera and A7 Processor
When it comes to leaks of upcoming Apple products, not many media outlets do it better than the folks at C Technology. And today’s leak is a scorcher! Yesterday C Technology promised that they were about to post new information about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5S on they Weibo account, and boy, have they delivered.
- Apple’s NFC Fingerprint Scanner and the Patent that will Stop Others from Copying It
- First Photo of the iPhone 5S Suggest it has Passed 3C Certification; China Launch Imminent
- High Resolution Images of iPhone 5S Box Leak; Fingerprint Scanner All But Confirmed
Here we have purported images of documents giving us unprecedented details about what to expect from the iPhone 5S.
Key specifications from the documents indicate the iPhone 5S will have the following:
- The iPhone 5S will retain its 1136×640 Retina display.
- It will sport a 8-megapixel rear camera. Early rumors suggest that this might be a 12-megapixel camera. Apple can expect some criticism over this. However, the camera should be a lot better that iPhone 5 due to software and Dual-LED flash enhancements.
- An A7 CPU, which should give you more power and at the same time longer battery life.
- The images show a redesigned Home button. The white square that was present on the iPhone Home button form launch, has been removed. This has likely made way for the new fingerprint scanner.
One key omission from the leaked specification documents is the lack of NFC support. It was rumored that Apple may incorporate NFC in its fingerprint scanner. At the end of the day Jonny Evans’ post – Apple’s new iPhones will disappoint, but that’s OK, sums it up very well.
According to Evans:
The new iPhone(s) will be thin, light, elegant and beautiful with every line and every detail fully thought through.
It won’t be enough.
Of course, the authenticity of these images cannot be confirmed. Hence, readers are encouraged to take this with a pinch of salt.
