New Videos of Gold and Graphite iPhone 5S rear shell


We continue to see high quality videos of Apple’s next generation iPhone, dubbed iPhone 5S and the rumored plastic iPhone 5C hit the web.

We bring you three new videos that have been published today.

The first video by YouTube user TLDToday gives a closer look at the gold iPhone 5S. TLD also tried to fit iPhone 5 components in the iPhone 5S to highlight the internal changes between the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5.

TLD points out that iPhone 5S features repositioned screws for the logic board, and cutout for dual LED flash. TLD also notes that there seems to be more available space for battery in the iPhone 5S thanks to the narrower logic board compared to iPhone 5. Leaked photos of iPhone 5S interiors has also revealed bigger battery. It remains to be seen if the higher capacity battery will ultimately result in longer battery life.

The second video gives a closer look at the iPhone 5S with the rumored graphite/grey rear casing. There have been some skepticism about a graphite iPhone 5S as leaked photos of iPhone 5 last year had suggested that it would come with a graphite back plate.

The third video by DetroitBORG shows the gold iPhone 5S rear casing and compares it with the plastic iPhone 5C rear casing and iPhone 5.

iPhone 5S will look similar to the iPhone 5, but come with improved internals such as a faster A7 chip, fingerprint sensor and dual-LED camera for improved low-light capabilities.

Apple is widely expected to unveil iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at a media event on September 10th, followed by the launch on September 20th.

    The “graphite” iPhone 5S is likely nothing more than a redesigned Black version.

    Remember how the Black iPhone 5 was susceptible to scratches? I’m sure the lighter coloring has something to do with the previous versions ease of scratching.

    Graphite = black… Apple wouldn’t release 2 new colors, the “Gold” makes sense because its more of a Luxe version for those seeking the iPhone “status”, but graphite is just ridiculous.

    I hope all the rumors are wrong. They need to compete with other androids and releasing the same phone with different internals is a mistake

      Apple’s iPhone cycle has always been “New Model, Incremental Update”. The 5 was a new model, this update will be incremental.

      Apple has never changed their product cycles based on what Samsung/Android does, nor have they read Internet comment sections to see what YOU think. It’s working just fine, since the iPhone is still the best selling individual smartphone.
