Photos of Apple iPhone 5S chassis components surface - read the full textThere are plenty of rumors going around about the iPhone 5S, including things like a dual-LED flash and a fingerprint scanner. Now, leaked components of the next-gen iPhone show changes to the top of the back and around the home button, which might be due to the inclusion of just those...

This phone will be a big adoo about nothing just like the 5 and 4s.

Dual LED flash? been done. Hell my old Motorola ZN5 had a proper xenon flash. Biometric fingerprint reader. My old Motorola Atrix which is now a backup phone has a biometric fingerprint reader.

Nothing new here.

No they don't, Majority of the people who buy it is because it's a fad. They like to say they have a "IPHONE"

i dont get how people can say theres lack of innovation from seeing a supposed picture of the case!! wtf? plus tbh smartphones nowadays have preety much everything you need, iphones dont need huge ram and 8 cores as it runs smooth already it be pointless. wait until they reveal new phone then comment on the innovation.

Apart from the iOs and a decent screen, hardware wise is pretty average....

No BT file share, no expandable memory, replacement batt cost a whopping £70-80 to replace, iTune only sync (cannot share file on comp... lame move apple), very dull and dated looking OS. Ip5 is buttery smooth bcos of the dated iOs.

Cheap shot at innovation claim..... facetime = almost 10 year old vid call, panaramic photo pic is a wow factor for ip5 lol very laughable

Cheap version of this product justify its actual value... 1/3 of the price or less

There is no much difference between 4 and 4s... only the chipset and camera differs... if apple do the same for iphone 5s... it will fail surely... nowadays apple enemies (windows and android) getting stronger... Two years back windows phone was not popular... now its getting momentum... be aware apple... paying high and getting a less feature mobile... This is why people are frustrated about apple...

if apple going to make a cheaper version of iphone. Then i would not buy an iphone anymore. Iphone is not a cheap phone, thats what make it the best. If you want a cheaper 1, then buy samsung or anything else. Just dont push apple to make iphone cheap.

Iphones has a reason to be close source it is a better os than windows as it is fast ,secured,battery n ram saver and most importantly TONS OF APPS( i dont understand why ppl are using windows where iphones is so much better). I don't find any fault in iphones except for these reasons. 1st screen size is too small 5 inch is the minimum2nd the retina display is outdated now,should go further than fhd 449ppi 3rd stylus 4rd expansion micro sd n removable battery 5th better processors,ram,camera sensor(suck by now) n audio(suck since the day of iphone 1). When these are corrected i am sure apple 14 % market shares will doubles. Stop being stubborn apples n ends up like nokia soon!!

Seriously iPhone is just a status symbol in poor countries but that's going to change thanks to iphone5c
Other than that there is no innovation in case of software as well as hardware as well as design
How about sapphire glass display or 4gb ram or 128 GB memory now that's innovation (sapphire glass can only be cut using diamonds)
