Apple is just one day away from revealing its new iPhone(s), but the leaks and rumors haven’t stopped just yet. Reportedly leaked marketing materials for the iPhone 5S have hit the Web, potentially confirming rumored specs that have been circulating over the past several months.
According to the press materials, which were discovered by Chinese tech site CTechnology, the iPhone 5S will run on Apple’s A7 processor and will boast about 250 hours of battery life on standby. The next Apple flagship will also supposedly come with the same 1136 x 640-pixel Retina Display touch screen as its predecessor, but the leak suggests that the camera will feature a dual LED flash. The main camera will keep its 8-megapixel sensor but will now be capable of shooting video in 1080p at 120 frames per second.
But perhaps what’s most interesting is the new design on the iPhone 5S’ purported home button, which sports a plain circular design rather than the square icon found on currently available icons. The home button also features a silver ring around its edges, which some have speculated to be a fingerprint scanner.
If these specs are legitimate, the next-generation iPhone appears to be very similar to the iPhone 5 but with some slight hardware tweaks. This would echo Apple’s iPhone 4S launch back in 2011, which simply added Siri to the iPhone 4. The leak doesn’t make any mention of new color options for the iPhone 5S, so we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see if a Graphite or Champagne Gold iPhone are in the works. The leaked press materials come just one day before Apple is expected to unveil its iPhone 5S and cheaper iPhone 5C in the United States, while the company will hold a separate event in China on Sept. 11.
The leaked specs revealed by CTechnology are mildly consistent with what we’ve heard about Apple’s iPhone 5S so far, with the exception of the handset’s camera sensor. Previous rumors have suggested that the next iPhone will launch with a 12-megapixel sensor paired with a dual LED flash rather than an 8-megapixel sensor, although we’re likely to know for sure come tomorrow.
