Peter Misek from Jefferies is already predicting the next iPhone's specs

Sad to say it, Apple fans, but your iPhone 5 is already old news: the iPhone 5S is coming in about six months, and lets just say it has a pretty colorful personality.

According to Peter Misek, an analyst from American global investment bank and institutional securities firm Jefferies, said that the iPhone 5S will be released in June 2013, and will likely come in six to eight different colors.

Misek said the new iPhone 5S will be colorful like the iPod touch, pictured above.

Misek also predicts that the 5S will have an IGZO screen for Retina+, a super HD camera/screen, NFC capability, 128GB of storage and a longer battery life.

Business Insider was quick to note that Misek's predictions have been off with Apple TV, but that he predicted the iPhone 4S last year while everyone else was expecting the iPhone 5. Hence, it seems to think Misek is spot on in the iPhone department.

Just last week, ETrade Supply claimed it had the first leaked photos of the iPhone 5S. More specifically, they looked to be the rear shell, and it shows a few minor differences between the 5 and the future 5S such as the placement of the logic board screw holes.

The iPhone 5 was released in September of this year. It features the new iOS 6 operating system, a larger 4-inch screen, 1136x640 screen resolution, 4G LTE connectivity, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options, an A6 dual-core processor and an 8MP rear-facing camera/1.2MP front-facing camera. The price is $200/$300/$400 for 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options respectively.

During launch weekend in September, Apple sold a total of 5 million iPhone 5s.

Looks an awfully a lot like the Nokia 620.

I suspect 1/2 of my iPhone friends who currently have the iPhone5 will buy this outright, or try to get a upgrade contract deal.

I miss my previous company Android devices...I'm now limping along on a iPhone4 from my current employer as our telecom guy is an iPhone fanboy (doesn't even support them, just manages the contracts. For support he sends us to the store). Of course he has an iPhone5...

Complaining about company phone? I drop mine in a toilet everytime I need an upgrade.

I don't know about Souka but that would just get me another I-phone. Probably a 4S or 5 but that's not worth messing with. I managed cell phone support at my last job and really wish more people would have given me "water" damaged phones in a plastic bag. I didn't ask and never knew where the "water" came from. Regardless all wet phones ended up in a bag.

Those are the new iPod touches which were announced and released a few months ahead of the 620. Apple has been doing colorful devices for a long time now, actually.

I know, I made the comment on the assumption that iphones usually resemble the touches.

Actually, they stopped doing colorful devices in their ipod line when they transitioned from classic to touch, iphones never expanded beyond BW. So it isn't 'a long time now' but 'a long time ago'.

You made a comment about the iPod touches looking like the Nokia 620 based on the assumption that iPhones usually resemble the touches? Huh?

The iPod nano and shuffle have been colorful devices for a long time.
