KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that the much-awaited iPhone 5S will be available in gold casing and a 128 GB storage option.


“We also forecast the new model will add  a new look, a gold casing, and a new option for larger 128 GB storage, to offer greater differentiation from iPhone 5,” Kuo claimed. He further added that the latest generation of iPhone will carry over most of its predecessor’s features.


It has been raised many times that there would be a possibility for a gold or champagne colored iPhone, and now that the most credible source aside from Apple itself has spoken up, many are more inclined to believe this news.


Since the iPad got a 128 GB storage option last spring, so there’s a big possibility for this to be carried over to the iPhone 5S.  This bigger storage option would double the current maximum storage of 64 GB, which could mean the discontinuity of the 16 GB storage option for most Apple devices. The updated processor will make it possible for an improved system performance of the 5S and other future devices.


Among the expected features of the 5S is a tweaked camera. The sensor unit will remain the same with change in the shooter that uses larger f2.0 aperture lens with dual LED flashes for low light situations.  Another feature would be the rumored fingerprint sensor that Kuo claimed to be likely embedded in a sapphire glass home button.


It has been announced recently by a Wall Street Journal article that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5S at an Apple Event on Sept. 10. It is said to happen at the IFA consumer electronics trade show in Berlin Germany alongside the expected announcement of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and HTC’s One Max phablet.


Apple has been launching its units a few weeks after their unveiling so it is to be expected for the iPhone 5S to be available much sooner after the said event.  For now, Apple geeks will devour as much rumors that would come out in the next weeks.
