As the first quarter of the year coming to an end, reports related to the release of the next iPhone are surfacing on the Web gradually.
There were some reports about the release date earlier too, but two recent reports suggesting two different release dates for the iPhone 5S have put Apple fans in real confusion.
According to a recent report from iMore, Apple is going to release the iPhone 5S somewhere in August this year.
"iMore has learned that Apple is planning the release of the iPhone 5S for this summer, currently for August," the report states.
Going deeper into the matter, the report also says that the next iPhone is going to come with an advanced processor and more impressive camera.
Meanwhile, the famous analyst of KGI securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, predicts that Apple will announce the iPhone 5S in June, and the release of the phone for the public will take place in July.
Moreover, he also predicts that the Cupertino company will launch a low-cost iPhone made of fiberglass and plastic along with the release of iPhone 5S.
According to a report from Apple Insider, Kuo also gave some information about the iPhone 5S' hardware.
"Kuo predicts that the iPhone 5S will leverage a number of next-generation Apple technologies, including a faster A7 SoC, a "Smart Flash" that uses white or yellow LEDs to ensure high-quality photos, and a fingerprint security chip sourced from the company's acquisition of AuthenTec. The 5S will recycle the same thin aluminum chassis seen on the iPhone 5, but may include a slightly larger 1600mAh battery," Apple Insider reports.
Kuo, in January, predicted the whole product roadmap of Apple for the year 2013. During the last month's prediction also, Kuo predicted the same launching window for the iPhone 5S and the low-cost version of the iPhone 5S.
The additional information in the recent prediction is the hardware details of the iPhone 5S and the low-cost iPhone.
So far, there is no official statement about the release of any of the devices from Apple; however two reports predicting two different launch dates are surely going to confuse the people who are eagerly waiting to see the latest smartphone from Apple's manufacturing units.
