The iPhone 5S is expected to feature an appearance similar to the current iPhone 5, but will have hardware upgrades such as an A7 processor and a 12-13MP camera. A number of rumors also point towards fingerprint scanning technology in the home button; however, we don’t actually know how it will be used. The device is expected to be available in the traditional black and white colors, along with a new gold color option.

One of the images also tells us that the device will be compatible with various carriers, as it mentions different networks support such as Rev. A and Rev. B, EVDO, CDMA, HSPA+/DC-HSDPA operating on 850/900/1900/2100MHz as well as 4G LTE support.

Apple is expected to showcase the device in September following its release a week and a half later—expected to be September 20th. Along with the refreshed iPhone 5S, Apple will also unveil its budget iPhone (aka iPhone 5C) featuring a polycarbonate body.
