iPhone 5S Coming in June in Multiple Colours, Better Camera Says Analyst

The iPhone 5S is expected to come out June next year, breaking the product release cycle pattern established over the past couple years, Peter Misek, a Jefferies analyst stated in a note Monday morning, BusinessInsider reports.

According to Misek, the iPhone 5S will feature an improved (super HD) camera and screen, NFC (yes, the eagerly awaited NFC) and a better battery. In addition, the iPhone 5S will be available in up to eight colors, similar to the iPod Touch, which is already shipped in multiple colors.

A June launch means a flip back to the mid-year launch similar to the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 launch. While Misek doesn’t support his statement, a possible explanation could be in the iPhone sales numbers Apple recorded for Q3 and Q4 during the past two years, when the handset was launched in the September/October time frame.
