iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, the next-generation iPhone and the much-rumored low-cost iPhone respectively, have made yet another appearance in a series of images.
Many of the images come courtesy of one man, the increasingly prolific Apple leaker, Sonny Dickson. Based in Australia, it would seem that Dickson has some very helpful contacts in Apple’s Asian supply chain.
There are about 70 of leaked pictures which show 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 colored strips at the top and bottom, and includes the new pill shaped camera flash module that’s been suggested by a number of rumors.
Unlike the iPhone 5’s camera flash the iPhone 5S flash is not round and is rumored to feature dual-LEDs, which would have white or yellow light depending on the ambient light conditions.
Then there are also images of the iPhone 5C, seen here in all five alleged shades that it would be sold in. Seen here are the yellow, green, white, cyan and pink colors with a possible color choice of black or white panel for the front.
Prolific Apple tipster Sonny Dickson said, “We can exclusively confirm that not only will Apple not offer a black color option for the iPhone 5C when it is expected to go on sale next month, but in fact, they never planned a black color option in the first place.”
There also has been a leakage from Chinese social network Weibo, showing the iPhone 5S and the budget iPhone 5C alongside each other and an iPhone 5.
The images confirm the differences and similarities between the models, although there is not much new to note in terms of the appearance of the phones, with the iPhone 5C sporting a White plastic body and the iPhone 5S bearing a metallic finish similar to the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5S will be largely the same as the iPhone 5 and will not feature a larger display as per some previous rumors. The iPhone 5C will be slightly larger but will still have a 4-inch display, a single row of speaker holes and a plastic back panel, writes KnowYourMobile.
Looking at the images, there’s no way to ascertain the absence of presence of a fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 5S, as has been rumored. There’s no fresh information in terms of specifications of either phones, to confirm or deny what was heard earlier.
While there’s no official word yet, Apple is expected to unveil the next generation iPhone and a lower-cost iPhone at a special event on September 10. A new report suggests that Apple may begin shipping both iPhones soon thereafter.
