iPhone 5S To Come In Gold With 128GB Option

Apple’s iPhone 5S will launch in gold and with a larger capacity option, according to a report from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo also said the device will pack a new A7 chip that could be as much as 20 percent more efficient than its predecessor thanks to a new processor design.

Kuo believes Apple's upcoming A-series silicon to be based on the latest ARMv8 architecture. In comparison, the A6 was built on a custom ARMv7 setup that doubled number crunching and graphics speeds, while shrinking die size by 22 percent.

By stepping up to ARMv8, and tweaking hardware and software packages, Kuo believes Apple will manage to squeeze out a 20 percent increase in efficiency over the A6.

That should result in a more powerful device that consumes less of your battery. Kuo also predicts faster memory specification and the same 1GB of RAM seen in the current iPhone.

Kuo notes that there is no clear evidence indicating whether the A7 will support 32-bit or 64-bit processes, but says he "would not be surprised" to see 64-bit support this year. If 64-bit isn't included in the A7, however, Kuo says manufacturing trends will likely push Apple in that direction if and when a next-generation "A8" processor is released.

Kuo suggests that the earlier champagne-colored iPhone 5S will indeed hit the market. We’ve seen parts for the third gold-colored variation, which suggest that it is indeed going to hit the market. Though, Apple typically sticks to black and white devices (or more colorful options), so it would be a break from the ordinary. The analyst believes Apple will offer a 128GB version of the new smartphone, following the trend it set with the fourth generation iPad earlier this year.
