It’s only five weeks or so till the iPhone 5S release (probably; Apple still hasn’t said anything official), and the rumours are flying every bit as thick and fast as one might expect.
We’ve attended countless prayer groups for a 128GB iPod touch, and it seems that God may have been listening after all, compromising with a 128GB iPhone 5S. Still not tempted? How about a gold iPhone?
That’s the story according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo, who told us back in April that the iPhone 5S and iPad mini 2 would launch in Q3. Looks like he was right. Maybe.
Mind you, he also predicted that the revamped Google Nexus 7 would be the star of the show at Google I/O. In fact, he was two-and-a-half months off with that one. Hmm.
Anyway! In addition to the 128GB iPhone 5S and spanking new gold colour option, Kuo says it’ll be an A7 chip with 1GB of RAM, since Apple is “capable of minimalizing memory capacity at an optimized state.”
The iPhone 5S camera will supposedly stay at 8MP, but “featuring a larger F2.0 aperture with dual flash lights”, while the Home button will have – yes – a fingerprint scanner.
Finally, a little table thingy lists an “iPhone 5 (low cost)”, made from plastic and fibreglass, being available in six colours, and with an unlocked price of $350-450 in the US. More hmm.
