A Japanese blogger with alias “Hakodate” leaked a Japanese carrier’s internal report showing what he claimed to be the release date for the iPhone 5s and its updated specs.
iPhone 5s Release Date
As you can see form the leaked image, the characters in red toward the bottom showing the announce date of June 20th, the line below it suggests a July release date, which would be about three quarters after the release of the iPhone 5.
iPhone 5s Specs
- The operating system will be upgraded from the iOS6 to iOS7, which is consistent with previous rumors that we have seen.
- The rear facing camera is expected to upgrade from a 8 megapixel camera to a 13 megapixel camera.
- an additional feature of fingerprint recognition for a security boost
From Tim Cook’s recent statements about future releases, he seemed to had dropped hints that the release of the iPhone 5s would be pushed back to September, but assuming this Japanese report check outs, we could expect the iPhone 5s a quarter earlier.
