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.

Nexus to Nexus was a full year. Nice fail try though.

And to Apple's credit, the comment was levied because there is a larger percentage of Apple customers who chose to upgrade at full price to the new iThing. While some Galaxy SIII owners will upgrade to the IV, most will hold off until they can get the Galaxy V on contract.

So you disproved 1 of my 3 examples? Nice fail try though.

That part I do agree with you and will admit have done myself but not all do it for the reasons you think. iPhones tend to keep a higher resale value which many use to pay for their next upgrade or right out buy the phone. Also we all know apple product users have been known to spend more on things like hotel rooms now whether this means apple owners are willing to spend more money or are simply more careless with their money so why not spend on a new phone.
Point is though that if this was an article about a new android phone it wouldn't have the same "awww sucks" attitude as this article when it shouldn't have a "booo" feeling at all it should just be straight forward news... But then there would be less hits wouldn't there.

I can confirm this - for myself, anyway. I traded in my 2-year-old iPhone 4 for more than enough money to fund a pre-ordered Galaxy S3. Though the GS3 is the best phone in the world, somehow I doubt I would receive enough trade-in allowance for the next upgrade in 2 years.

You won't, but that's ok.... Apple products retain an artificial inflated resale price partly due to brand image but also a slower upgrade cycle means means fewer used phones being sold off.
I have only ever paid for 1 iPhone :) lol my 3G!!! The selling of which paid for my 3GS which paid for my 32gb 4 which paid for my 16gb 5. IF I wanted the 5s/6 in June I'm sure the sale of my 5+ a few dollars out of pocket would buy it outright. I've also entertained the thought of selling my 5 and outright buying a lumia 920 with cash in my pocket just to change things up.

Eeeew...that makes me cringe. That would be a terrible waste of trade-in allowance/upgrade.

I know it seems like WP is a good system. But regret is a bigger part of the system. It is so much less useful than Android - especially a Galaxy S3.

I already used my upgrade on the iphone5, I would be selling it at right below retail which is still more money than the 920 costs outright. No loss at all actually.
And I don't see me regretting the move I don't have the gripes with wp8 that some of you do and I'm someone who never downloads apps no matter what Eco system I'm on so app stores don't play a role for me. If I didn't like it I would just sell it add a few bucks and go back to an iPhone.
