Apple to Offer Gold Colored iPhone 5S, 128GB Storage Option?

Posted August 16, 2013 at 5:50am by iClarified · 53053 views
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has issued a new research note claiming that the iPhone 5S will be available in gold and have a 128GB storage option.

We also forecast the new model will add a new look, a golden casing, and a new option for larger 128GB storage, to offer greater differentiation from iPhone 5.

We've already seen numerous leaks of gold colored iPhone components which corroborate Kuo's prediction.

A new 128GB storage option would double the currently available storage for the iPhone 5. This would be welcomed improvement for those who store a lot of media on their devices. Notably, Apple has already increased the storage on its iPad to a max of 128GB.

Kuo also says the new iPhone will get 1GB DDR3 RAM.

We reckon A7 will upgrade memory bandwidth spec to LPDDR3 from LPDDR2 adapted by A6, in an effort to improve system performance. Since Apple is in charge of both hardware and OS design, it is capable of minimalizing memory capacity at an optimized state. Therefore, A7’s RAM will likely be unchanged at 1GB.

In a previous note, Kuo predicted the iPhone 5S would have a convex sapphire home button with a built-in fingerprint sensor.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S on September 10th.

"Colored" is a racist term. You're supposed to say "African-American."

Oh yea f**ck face.So no1 is going to buy an Iphone5s? I have all the phones that are on the market as we speak..none of them come close to my experience to an Iphone5. Galaxy S4,Galaxy S3 Nexus 4,I am about to get that Nexus 7 to see the difference. I sell them on ebay all the time Just the resale value Apple product has is way superior .. I put the Galaxy S4 on ebay for 3 days ,only 13 people that looked at it,I had to Re-list this piece of shiit 3 times. On the other hand I put an Iphone5 unlocked 186 people that looked at it and 23 people that watched it. Sold for $ 600, Definitely going to buy that 128Gig for sure.I have a 64gig ONLY 8 Gig left on mine.

I don't know but gold doesn't seem to jive with Apple's current color scheme. Perhaps this would go well with the iPod line and not for iPhones.

Wow! The gold one is ugly.

Samsung will do something better, spects: (4 GB of memory ram, 256 GB of storage and a 3 Ghz quad core CPU ) but you can get it for FREE on a Frosted Flakes box.

You can buy a full body gold decal for less than 20$ on Amazon for those who do not want to fork over the $

Why not just buy an anodized bezel instead? Their $63 from covers are cheap and shitty

Since iphone 4 they added new material, since 4s they added siri with new material, since 5, new screen with new material besides 4s aluminum, slate, new improved siri, smaller charger, newer bottom and some new features for some apps, now for 5s we may have gold iphone which burns sheep 4/5 like the one from the apartment, we will have tons of camera upgrades like oh here's a few, led flash, megapixels, filters from ios 7, paranorma from ip5 unlike any other phone, low-light! Tell me again how all this is the same after IMPROVEMENTS clueless sheepdroid wannabe! Do this any article as long as you wany, I always have proof and you just go like "ooh samsung releases galagxy sheep 5 with hd screen"! All samsuck does it increase size yearly!

Hey Steve. I love apple as much as you do. Always have and always will. But dude. Sometimes You make no sense when you talk. Just slow down and explain yourself better man.

Matt Barnes - August 16, 2013 at 8:50pm
I don't know dude. You just don't make sense sometimes. Your explanations are all over the place. I ain't fighting with man. And to prove you wrong the iPhone 4 and 4S were made with stainless steel. The iPhone 5 is aluminum.
