iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C leaked in China

iphone-5cWeibo has become a great platform for leaks on Apple products, with the Chinese leakers having a portal to show all the newest leaked gadgets coming out of Foxconn and Pegatron, the two Chinese manufacturers making all of the new Cupertino designed products.

The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C have both been leaked quite a few times, with the iPhone 5S looking exactly the same as the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C looking like a degraded version of the iPhone 5 for developing countries.

New photos show the iPhone 5S against the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C against the iPhone 4S. The two phones will be the same size as the iPhone 5, at 4.0-inches. Apple has said they do not want to fragment the system with another screen size.

The general Apple audience would love to see a larger iPhone at some point; perhaps the iPhone 6 will come with a 4.5-inch screen to push the boundaries a little. The four-inch screen size is minuscule for Android users, with the ‘Mini’ versions of flagships coming at 4.3-inches.


Even though the iPhone 5S looks exactly like the iPhone 5, there are some differences, we once again see the dual-LED flash on the new phone and the camera will be improved, either with a 12MP sensor or a f/2.0 aperture.

No leaker has referenced the fingerprint sensor strangely, making us believe this feature may be implemented on release for users of the iPhone 5S. Fingerprint interface UI packs have been spotted in iOS7 beta updates; this could be a software feature.

Both phones should be coming to the event on September 10, where Apple will launch iOS7. Leakers seem sure the iPhone 5S will make an appearance, but Apple may hold off the iPhone 5C for another event or may just launch it through China Mobile and then add it to stocks worldwide as the budget iPhone.
