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.

I never heard that said over the s2 to s3 to the now soon to be s4, or HTC phones in the last 6 months, (apparently it was 1 year from nexus 3 to 4 so ill leave it out this time lol).
Retro, the problem isn't the release cycle periods of any of these phones they could be released every month and that would be great! It's also ok what you, me, and others here think in replies... But I don't think it's ok to constantly read negative, biased, and opinionated articles by the staff. I would feel the same if an article started off negatively about the galaxy s4 launch date but that's not likely to happen on DT.

"I never heard that said over the s2 to s3 to the now soon to be s4,"

People say that all the time about tech and cars and anything that gets released on regular cylces. Its sort of a common goto comment about ever evolving tech.

"But I don't think it's ok to constantly read negative, biased, and opinionated articles by the staff."

Sorry again, the article isnt at all negative or biased. YOU got all bent because its about Apple. You are bing rediculous. Reread the article again and tell me how its negative and/or biased. There is nothingn negative at all, not even slightly. Not even anything that any rational person could possibly misinterpret as negative.

The very first sentence in the article sounds quite negative and seems to be DT staffs collective opinion on apple/iPhone products. Again I haven't seen the same comments towards other platforms. It wasnt a 1 off comment it's practically every cell phone article to do with or mentioning apple.

I'm not being ridiculous and sorry but no matter how many times you or someone else says it I'm not an apple fanboy ;) maybe it makes you feel better to think that I am? Maybe it helps you rationalize my responses, but you'd still be wrong. Funny thing is with most things against apple I'm right along side with a lot of the posters here. But I own an iPhone so I must be a fanboy right?
I actually complain about the writing here on DT by staff across different topics not just the iPhone bashing ones which just happen to be the most opinionated.

I repeat, there is nothing negative at all in the article above. Not even a little bit.

How is that in any way negative about Apple though?

That is like saying Sorry 2012 BMW 3 serious owners, the 2013 model is out in 6 months and it will be even better. OK, that is a compliment to BMW about the new product and also a totally expected result. If Apple and BMW didnt release a better product it would be a newsworthy bad thing.
