iPhone 5S Specs Leak Out In Purported Marketing Material [IMAGE]
With only a couple of days left until the announcement of the iPhone 5S, or so we presume, Apple has done a pretty good job of keeping things under wraps, with sightings of the device having been kept to a minimum. But when you’re busily mass producing a product for prime time, information is bound to leak out eventually, and snaps of what would appear to be marketing material shed even more light on the device’s specifications as well as aesthetics.
The Home button, as we’ve seen already, will no longer include that square marking, and although this marketing fodder doesn’t offer much by way of info on the iPhone 5S fingerprint sensor, we’ve seen and heard enough legitimate info to presume this will be a feature.
The images show the dual-LED flash everybody’s been raving about, which will offer better shot-taking capabilities in low lighting conditions. The marketing info notes of an 8-megapixel, F2.0 wide aperture lens main snapper, and while this, on paper, doesn’t sound like much of an upgrade on the iPhone 5’s 8-megapixel offering, we know that you know better than to simply rate a camera by its number of megapixels.
Having said that, it was earlier rumored that the iPhone 5S would carry a 12-megapixel camera, so we’ll have to wait and see the real-world tests before passing any real judgment on the shot-taking capabilities. There will, according to this info, be 1080p video recording of up to 120 fps, which will no doubt go down well with wannabe directors, and although the front camera is only 1.2 megapixels, should be good enough for your FaceTime and selfie needs.
The info indicates that the iPhone will offer 250 hours of battery life when on standby, and with battery retention having been an issue with iPhones in the past, let’s hope the real-world output is as strong as the marketing suggests.
September 10th iPhone event will mark the big day of the announcement, and with today being the 9th, you know what that means. We’ll be covering all of the days events in great detail, so make sure you stay tuned to our coverage here at Redmond Pie for all your Apple-related announcements!
