Ohh, the iPhone 5S … it feels like everyone in the tech industry (us included) have been speculating about what we might expect since before the 5 even hit the market. (Okay, that’s a bit of a stretch, but still, that’s how it feels.)
That being said, we’re not going to stop speculating until we’re finally holding one in the palms of our hands. The latest concept, which first debuted on YouTube and was then reported by uSwitch, was created by Ran Anvi, who has been responsible for a handful of other potential looks for the phone. The video shows a device with a 4.8-inch display sporting a 1320×740 pixel resolution. On this model, the home button also changes for the first time into a capacitive button.
Aside from these features, the phone concept is virtually unchanged from the iPhone 5. Whether these physical changes will actually happen is suspect, since the past has shown us that the “S” model is usually more of an internal software upgrade. But who’s to say? Apple is no stranger to throwing a curve ball our way. (And it would be exciting for the new phone to actually look and feel like a new phone.) Plus, as uSwitch pointed out, secure finger-scanning technology has been high up on Apple’s to-do list, so just maybe we will see the capacitive home button.
Once again, only time will tell, but hey, it looks like we’ll at least get to catch a sneak peak at iOS 7 at next month’s Worldwide Developers’ Conference, so that’s gotta count for something, right? Until then, check out the video below to see Anvi’s iPhone 5S concept.
