And yet again we have an “in the wild” photo of the upcoming iPhone 5S to show you. The new leak, provided by MacRumors, shows that the next Apple smartphone will add dual-LED flash to the mix to make for better photos when you take them in low-light conditions.
MacRumors also noted that the main chip on the logic board is not labeled with an A-series name like A6 though that doesn’t say us much at this stage – Apple may print the chip name at a later point. Moreover, a date code visible on the bottom of the chip reads “1243”, suggesting that the chip was manufactured in the 43rd week of 2012, corresponding to late October. It’s unclear whether this is the same A6 chip used in the iPhone 5 or something newer, better.
Finally, they say the battery carries a more recent Apple Part Number of 616-0652 compared to the iPhone 5 battery, which has carried several different part numbers including 616-0611 and 616-0613. This battery does have a higher capacity of 5.92 Whr, compared to the 5.45 Whr capacity of the battery found in the existing iPhone 5.
Apple will unveil the iPhone 5S later this year alongside a more affordable model that will be available in multiple color versions…
