Call it the iPhone 6, the iPhone 5S, the iPhablet or whatever you want – the A7 processor destined to power all of the above has leaked out in all its glory.
…well, in image form.
Shared with the world by the good people over at iOSDoc, the pictures could very well prove to be our first genuine peek at the quad-core 1.3GHz processor set to take over as standard for iOS products in 2013 and beyond.
And according to the same site, the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 will launch with a mighty 2GB of RAM and a massively reworked iOS 7 operating system. The leaks join existing iPhone spec and feature rumors which are pointing to a larger screen of up to 4.8-inches, an overhauled Siri voice assistant and suggestions as elaborate and solar charging panels built into the touchscreen.
As far as release dates go, plenty are still adamant that we’ll see both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 before the end of the year.
The latest round of leak owes its origins to those working in Apple’s Far East supply chain, who claim to have seen both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 in full production on the assembly lines. If true, this would certainly tally up with a 2013 release date for both.
Apple’s iPhone 5S reportedly looks almost identical to the current iPhone 5 and therefore could be a modest internal revamp, while the iPhone 6 is rumored to be sporting a comparatively massive display panel of 4.8-inches or a full 5-inches. All of the above gives additional credence to the ongoing whispers of Apple lining up an affordable iPhone 5S – aka the iPhone Mini – for 2013, along with a new-generation iPhablet to rival the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note.
