Rumors

iPhone 5S

  • Will look mostly like the iPhone 5, with internal upgrades.

  • Larger rear flash, enhanced camera.

  • An enhanced processor.

  • Fingerprint scanner?

  • September launch

Our review of the iPhone 5s can be found here.

Apple’s next step forward in smartphones will likely be the iPhone 5S. It will most likely resemble the iPhone 5, but with a larger (dual LED) rear flash.

Along with that larger rear flash, we believe the iPhone 5S will feature an upgraded camera. Sony’s recent 13-megapixel sensor may be featured, or an enhanced version of the iPhone 5’s 8-megapixel sensor could be included; rumors have pointed to a bump in lens speed to f/2.0, increasing light-gathering abilities. It’s also expected that the processor will get a boost from the iPhone 5, as has been the case for past annual updates; it could merely receive a clock speed bump, or also benefit from additional CPU or GPU cores. Overall, we’d expect the 5S to be the typical S model, with internal changes in the same body as its predecessor, targeted largely at those who didn’t buy the iPhone 5.

Our sources suggested the July-August timeframe as a target for launch, but it’s clear now that the iPhone 5S will be launched in September, after the announced Sept. 10 event.

Other rumors:

Production for the phone will start in the second quarter of 2013. We believe that this happened.

The iPhone 5S will come with Near-Field Communication (NFC) capabilities and/or a fingerprint sensor. NFC rumors have been popping up for years now. Both NFC and fingerprint speculation has escalated since Apple’s purchase of mobile security firm AuthenTec, and Apple is believed to be working on a wireless digital payments system that will utilize the over 300 million credit cards already on file at the iTunes Store. It has been reported that fingerprint sensor issues might push back the start of mass production past June.

Rumors have suggested that the iPhone 5S will somehow incorporate wireless charging, though it’s unclear whether Apple would support an inductive charging surface or a patented proximity-based through-the-air-based charging technology.

Some rumors have claimed that the iPhone 5S may have two or three separate screen sizes. We don’t think so.

The new camera will feature an improved night shooting mode. This is quite possible.

Like the iPhone “5C,” it’s rumored the 5S could come in colors other than black and white, such as gold and green.

Apple could call the iPhone 5S “iPhone 6.” There’s no ruling out this possibility, but it would be unlikely given the company’s past naming conventions. We believe the iPhone 6 will be a separate device.

  • iPhone 5S

    Wireless charging has been rumored as a possibility for the iPhone 5S. An Apple patent application from last year detailed an inductive charging mat.

  • iPhone 5S

    If NFC does come to the iPhone 5S, Passbook/digital wallet expansion seems inevitable.

Famous Nights Out For London Theatre Try West End Shows One London theatre attraction that never ceases to draw huge crowds is the West End that is the location of some longrunning musical and other West End Shows. Tickets to this particular Theatreland can be quite sought after especially during peak seasons. Underneath are just some of the famous musicals that one could see at London’s West End. Who doesn’t know or at least heard about Les Miserables that is based on the classic novel of the identical title by French author Victor Hugo? Les Miserables is actually the longest running show in recent history in London’s West End. This is one of the huge crowd drawers. A number of people have seen Les Miserables twice or even three times and still wouldn’t mind watching it again for a couple more. That’s simply how popular the musical is. It seems that theater goers just can’t get enough of the themes of love and redemption that is wonderfully portrayed by the play. And with beautiful songs such as “Can You Hear the People Sing” and “I Dreamed a Dreamed,” it was really destined to become a hit. Another classic would be the Phantom of the Opera that opened only a year after Les Miserables, which makes it the second longestrunning musical at London’s West End. It is probably the most wellloved of all Andrew Lloyd Weber creation. Based on Gaston LeRoux’s novel, the story’s themes of love and obsession is masterfully represented by the blending of opera and rock. “The Point of No Return” and “Masquerade” are just two of the most unforgettable songs from this musical. If you are looking for a more contemporary musical, then We Will Rock You will definitely be to your liking. Running for eight years already, the show is set 300 years into the future and depicts the life of a young nonconformist named Gallileo and his battle against the corporate Killer Queen. If you are a fan of the British rock band Queen then you will be delighted to know that this show features some of their greatest hits such as “We Are the Champions” and of course “We Will Rock You.” Another modern classic is Mama Mia that is famous not only among Abba fans, but to everyone who can appreciate a good light and funny story. It is about a young, fatherless bride named Sophie who just discovered that her mom dated three men at the time of her conception. For her wedding, she decides to invite all three of her potential dads, turning the story into a series of one amusing scenario after another. And with Abba hits in the score such as “Dancing Queen” and “Mama Mia,” this show is simply irresistible. With all the good theatre showing in London’s West End Shows, it is not hard to imagine why it is quite hard to get West End tickets. Online Theatre Tickets outlets are definitely a blessing to theatre lovers. Through these sites, you can order your tickets in advance. No need to join the long ques at London’s West End. Frank BelangerWest End Shows are the place to go for a great night out in London and get tickets at onlinetheatreticketsm Frank Belanger West End Shows are the place to go for a great night out in London and get tickets at onlinetheatreticketsm
