iPhone 5S will be the next flagship smartphone from Cupertino giant Apple featuring next generation iOS 7. It will be the successor to current flagship ,iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S is rumored to pack 4-inch Super HD display. It will be powered by 1.5GHz quad core A7 processor and 2GB RAM. For connectivity, iPhone 5S will support Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi 802.11 b/g/n, LTE connections and NFC technology. There is no further information available on the hardware but rumors are that the new iPhone 5S will just feature a software upgrade and will have the same form factor as the flagship iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S is expected to go in full production in Q1 and will be launched during Q2 of next year. It will be launched alongside second generation iPad Mini 2. IPhone 5S is a decent upgrade but Apple is risking a backlash by launching new products within 6 months (as seen after iPad 4 launch). IPhone 5S will compete directly against the other flagship smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S IV, HTC One, and BlackBerry Z10. Stay tuned for more updates or follow @harrym20 on Twitter.
