Apple is ramping up production of the iPhone 5S, and the rumour mill has been spilling a tremendous amount of juicy information lately. Just consider the recent 4.3-inch iPhone 5S rumours, or today’s top image of a purported iPhone 5S on the assembly line (see above).
Considering the rumoured external design similarities between the iPhone 5 and the forthcoming iPhone 5S, it’s hard to tell whether the image is genuine or not.
The leaked photos are “coming right from the source, probably from a Foxconn factory in China,” and were posted on Weibo a few days ago. The same source has also heard that the iPhone 5S will feature the biggest hardware upgrade ever: 4-inch IGZO display, an A6 chip with improved quad-core SGX 554MP4, improved LTE (maybe LTE-A?), a fingerprint sensor, a 12MP rear camera and most interesting of all: an NFC chip.
The rumour also suggests that Apple could skip the S factor this year and jump directly to 6, alongside the lower-cost iPhone. Interesting.
