Apple iPhone 5S, 6 spotted at supplier: Report [Hardware] [Times of India]

(Times of India Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NEW DELHI: Over the past few months, the rumour mill is abuzz with reports about iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 - the two new smartphones that Apple is supposedly working on. Speculations have been rife about the upcoming models, from their prices to colour options and features. Now a report claims that the two smartphones have been spotted for the first time at the facility of an Apple supplier.

A user named Old Yao has claimed on a Chinese microblogging website Sina Tech that a friend of his working with an Apple supplier has seen the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6. He revealed that the former looks exactly like iPhone 5, while the latter is longer, wider and thinner. The post also said that the two devices are likely to be launched in 2013.

Previously, TOI reported that Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities, has said that Apple is working on an iPhone 5 successor that will have new features like snappier processor, fingerprint sensor, better camera and more powerful LED flash. Kuo's claim of fingerprint recognition system gains a little credence from Apple's 2012 acquisition of Authentec, which deals with this technology.

The second iPhone will be cheaper and will be same as iPhone 5 but will be a little stockier, said Kuo. Instead of the aluminium body and waistline of 7.6mm, the cheaper iPhone will have a plastic casing and measure 8.2mm around the sides. He also said this device will be available in six colours, a rumour that has done rounds in the past as well.

Technology blog iLounge has also reported about the upgrade in camera sensor, saying that the upcoming phone may have Sony's 13MP unit. The report also says that the two prototypes under development are named N51 and N53.
