It’s generally accepted that the iPhone 5S will be a slightly souped-up version of the existing iPhone 5, though the Californians will have to throw something special in to make it worthwhile. The iPhone 4S, of course, had Siri.
Previous whispers have touted the notion of a fingerprint scanner, and the latest rumours suggest one of the standout iPhone 5S features might be 120fps slow-motion video.
That’s the story according to sources of 9to5mac, with the discovery of something called Mogul mode in the latest beta version of iOS 7.
It’s thought that the iPhone 5S’s slow-motion Mogul mode would be accessible in a similar fashion to the iPhone 5’s Panorama mode – from within the Camera app.
We’re sure Samsung will have something to say if that’s the case, as the Samsung Galaxy S4 already has a similar 120fps feature.
In addition to Mogul and the fingerprint scanner, rumoured iPhone 5S specs include a faster processor, and perhaps a Sony-provided 13MP rear camera, and, uhm, that’s about your lot. The display will almost certainly be identical to the iPhone 5’s, at 4in (1136 x 640, 326PPI).
The iPhone 5S launch is expected to go down shortly, probably September, with iOS 7 landing around the same time.
