While Apple's next generation iPhone and the much talked about low-cost iPhone or the iPhone 5C are expected to be announced in less than three weeks, the leaks just don't stop trickling.
Sonny Dickson, who's been regularly posting pictures of the new iPhones, including some high resolution ones, has now uploaded
about 70 purported pictures of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C components including that of ribbon cables and components, the entire intact casings, display assemblies, vibration motor, audio jack, SIM trays, the front and rear cameras, and the mounts to attach all of the components to the casing, among others. The pictures don't feature the logic board of the phones, though. Some pictures feature the Gold/ Champagne iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C placed side by side.
The Gold iPhone 5S back casing features White coloured strips at the top and bottom, and includes the new pill shaped camera flash module that's been suggested by a number of rumours. Unlike the iPhone 5's camera flash the iPhone 5S flash is not round and is rumoured to feature dual-LEDs, which would have white or yellow light depending on the ambient light conditions.
The new photo gallery offers sets of pictures featuring the iPhone 5S display assembly, back housing, internal components, SIM Trays, and the iPhone 5S back casing, components and display assembly. The Red iPhone 5C variant appears to have a Black coloured display panel.
The phones seen in the images are not very different from the ones seen in previous leaks.
Just a day back, new purported pictures of the Gold/ Champagne iPhone had appeared online
complete with the Apple branding. However, it did not include the top and bottom glass strip as well as Volume rocker and Mute keys.
The iPhone 5S is expected to come with a brand new Apple chip, the A7
, alongside 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, retaining the form factor of the iPhone 5. A 128GB storage variant of the phone has also been rumoured. The iPhone 5S is likely to come with a larger f2.0 aperture compared to the iPhone 5, that comes with f2.4 aperture. It's also likely to sport a fingerprint reader.
The low-cost iPhone or iPhone 5C has leaked several times
. Alleged pictures of the iPhone 5C have revealed a plastic polycarbonate body back panel in White, Blue, Red, Yellow and Green colours, a round camera lens and LED flash, Apple logo and iPhone branding. However, we've not heard much about the specifications of the phone till now.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S along with the iPhone 5C, the cheaper version of the iPhone, on September 10 at an event in San Francisco.
