Apple iPhone 5S will be available in up to 8 colours

Cupertino based iDevice maker Apple is reportedly going to release its next iPhone handset in June 2013, in a variety of different colours.

It states: “Apple will release an iPhone 5S in June, a break from the pattern it’s established over the last two years, says Jefferies analyst Peter Misek in a note this morning.”

“Misek is predicting the iPhone 5S has a new “super HD camera/screen, a better battery, and NFC,” and “possible updates include an IGZO screen for Retina+, 128GB storage.” He’s also predicting it comes in 6-8 colors, presumably similar to the iPod Touch which comes in a bunch of colors.”

“Horace Dediu at Asymco has an interesting theory on why Apple would speed up its release cycle. This year, Apple’s sales dipped significantly two quarters before the launch of a new iPhone. Consumers held off because they knew a new phone was coming. Apple wants to avoid loading all its sales into one half of the year. By accelerating its product releases it can avoid his problem”, added the title.

That analyst had correctly predicted the name of the 2011 iPhone, when tech titles were calling it the iPhone 5 – he noted it was to be known as the iPhone 4S.

Stay tuned to Omio and we’ll bring you more on the iPhone 5S, which has recently been leaked in a purported early engineering sample.
