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.
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

Oh Boy, Another Stunning Analyst Prediction

Why do these analysts' predictions garner attention? Look at any of their records, and they're generally not doing much better than you'd expect from blind conjecture... which shouldn't be surprising, considering that's pretty much what they're doing.
Let's see... "IGZO screen for Retina+"? Maybe, a pretty safe guess considering that's the only real advance to the screen they could do, besides upping the resolution. I'm guessing they're going to save upping the pixel density to rival the HTC Butterfly/Droid DNA is being saved for the iPhone 6 though.
"... a super HD camera/screen" What does this even mean?
"NFC capability" Another safe bet, and they will, of course, market it as the next "magical" thing iPhones can do, despite them being well behind both other platforms on implementing it.
"128GB of storage" Not likely. Including that much NAND would cut into their giant profit margins, especially the $100/200 markup on higher NAND capacity versions. They *may* move up to 32GB as the base $199 model.
"... and a longer battery life." Oh wow, now that's a stunning prediction.

The flash capacity is the most likely of those specs. By next summer the newest flash node that just recently ramped up will be well-established, it won't cost Apple any more to include twice the flash.
