First iPhone 5S Images Possibly Leaked

By - Source: Nowhereelse | B 32 comments

If proved to be true, the iPhone 5S will be strikingly identical to its predecessor.


Alleged images of the successor to Apple's iPhone 5 has surfaced two months after the smartphone's launch in September.

French Web site Nowhereelse showcased the purported pictures of the next iPhone, referred to as the iPhone 5S, from a forum run by iPhone5parts.

The images depict an iPhone that features an exterior similar to that of the iPhone 5, with the rear of the unannounced handset effectively passing as an iPhone 5 if the printed information wasn't replaced with an "x," which may suggest a prototype.

Inside the iPhone 5S, meanwhile, it shows different placement for the screws, as well as a few minor differences from its predecessor.

As for when the iPhone 5's successor is scheduled for a release, reports have tipped an early 2013 launch.

    Good thing I didn't buy the iPhone 5 and waited for the 5S. Perhaps I'll even wait for the iPhone 6 in fact, or 6S, or even 7, or 8, or 9... anyways, I love to just wait because by waiting I ensure I'm gonna have the next phone version I'm never gonna have. ;)

    The 4S looked like the 4. No reason to expect the 5S not to look like the 5.

    At least the competition try to vary their phone designs...

    Maybe it's just a 5??? Please watch the Conan skit where they went around with an iPhone 4s and asked people what they thought of the "New iPhone 5." Funny.

    Hey Apple, ever heard of the idiom: "Killing the golden goose" ?

    Looks like an iPhone 5.

    Apple is probably trying to make assembly of the iPhone 5 more efficient because apparently it's the most difficult iPhone to assemble. Moving those screws around will really increase productivity in the Foxconn plant.

    And the best part is, you'll never actually end up owning an iPhone.

    This is the same ordeal with the Galaxy phones, HTC phones, etc.. Whats the different? every couple of months a "new" phone comes out that is basically the exact same thing as the previous phone but with 1 or 2 additions.

    Not only apple, nearly all manufacturers.

    I stopped with the Iphone 4. Was tired of incremental speed bumps and the same small screen year after year. The 5's 4 inch screen is a joke. I wanted a bigger screen so I got it, the Galaxy Note 2 and never looked back. They can keep the 5S or the 6 doesnt matter when you go gigantic, faster and just as thin with a phone like I did.

    I wouldn't believe this report. I will wait until someone finds it in a bar.
    I also have a note 2.... I love this phone so much. I feel like the guy who goes to confession and says to the priest that he had a 3 way with the Thompson twins. The priest tells him to say 3 hail Mary's. The guys says but I am not catholic. The priest then says" why did you tell me this then?" Are you kidding the guy says, I am telling everyone" The Note 2 makes you feel like you just did the Thompson twins. Now that's a commercial.

    There's no real competition. :)  Either you buy a Note 2, or you buy a phone that is not the Note 2.

    otacon72Um your contract is tied to your line not your phone. You can get a new phone anytime you want genius.


    At full price.

    Do you enjoy looking like you are missing large chunks of your brain daily?
