A spring/summer launch for the next iPhone is looking more and more likely as yet another report has been released indicating production of the 5S is about to start.
WSJ reported the 5S as being of similar size and shape as the iPhone 5 just with upgraded hardware, which follows closely with all other iPhone releases. Expect to see a faster processor, more RAM and a better camera, but nothing else really to excite us.
Recent patent filings have indicated a cheaper iPhone being launched with a ceramic based shell to compete with the lower end of the market, still retaining its 4-inch retina display. This makes sense as they have been throwing this idea around for a long time and will look to displace the likes of Sony, Samsung and Blackberry from the hands of the younger end of the market.
All reports are indicating a summer announcement with release weeks after.
