iPhone 5S Release Rumors: Sufficient To Believe!

Will Apple launch its next iPhone 5S just within a year? The month of August is going to be much optimistic for smartphone lovers across the globe.

iPhone 5S Release Rumors: Sufficient To Believe!

iPhone 5S vs Google Moto X

With speculation of Google announcing its Motorola Moto X smartphone on 02 August 2013, there are much speculation that later in this month, Apple is going to officially announce the launch of iPhone 5S in coming September, and more.

The new Apple iPhone 5S or 5C?

Hard thing to believe – whether Apple will really launch its next iPhone just within a year of the latest release, iPhone5?

However, if launched, I am sure to sell my phone for the new iPhone 5S.

After the acquisition of Motorola Mobility by Google last year, this going to be the first big move for the company to launch its most powerful, feature-packed Moto X. News is that Google is planning $500 million for the marketing and advertisement of Moto X.

However, the acquired company is yet to offer Google the taste of profit. Naturally, Moto X will be a much cheaper contestant for iPhone 5S, but the phone seems to have gathered all good things in it.

In the recent news, there are much speculation and remarks about a new iPhone from Apple – the iPhone 5s. Let us follow what the buzz about the next iPhone is around.

iPhone 5S: New and Improved?

Different sources reveal differently. According to an online report from IBN Live, the iPhone 5S will have a much improved display (the present display is incomparably better, though) with twice the pixels than what iPhone 5 has now.

In addition, it will have a quad-core processor, the latest in the trend for most of the high-end smartphones. The present flashlight at the back of the phone will get an update with dual LED flash.

The bezel of the phone is expected to be thinner, so this will be the thinnest phone again. The design of the phone, thereby, will be much similar to iPad mini – sleek and slim.

Apple, SK Telecom and 4G

Major interest seems to be a significant network upgrade. The Korean Times, later in the month of July, announced that Apple and Korean Mobile service operator giant SK Telecom are planning to unveil an LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) phone in the near future.

Hence, it is expected that the new iPhone 5s will carry 4G LTE Advanced Capabilities. SK Telecom is acting in full force to approach Apple to put their advanced technology in the upcoming 5S. With so much of enhancement, if implemented, naturally the iPhone will demand more power.

So, the battery in the new iPhone 5s is also going a high capacity upgrade.

iPhone 5S or 5C

Actually, speculation started building up after an unclaimed phone surfaced online, showing white packaging boxes with ‘iPhone 5C’ and the Apple logo on it.

It is yet unclear, whether the upcoming iPhone will get ‘5s’ or ‘5c’ as its suffix. If we relate to some earlier sources, it seems that Apple may also launch some low-cost iPhones models starting at $99 in 5 – 6 fashionable colors.

My Opinion
Speculations, Speculations, and much Speculation!

Apple has sold over 5 million iPhone 5s’ in just three days of its launch.

I believe; if the speculations were true, Apple is taking the right move to launch the next iPhone in coming September. (Seems that Apple is in a hurry. The same is happening with their Mac OX – Operating System also).

In addition, if the story about the cheaper models of iPhones will actually happen, there will be a sharp spike in the total volume of iPhones sold, however, the operating profit will comparatively be less (with similar numbers of high-end iPhones sold).

Well, we have to wait until anything is officially announced…

What about You?
Will you sell your phone for the new iPhone 5S? Do you think Apple is making the right move by launching the next iPhone so early? What features you wish to have in your new iPhone?
