A new research note by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the iPhone 5S will be available in gold and have a 128GB storage option.
We also forecast the new model will add a new look, a golden casing, and a new option for larger 128GB storage, to offer greater differentiation from iPhone 5.
Kuo also says the new iPhone will get 1GB DDR3 RAM.
We reckon A7 will upgrade memory bandwidth spec to LPDDR3 from LPDDR2 adapted by A6, in an effort to improve system performance. Since Apple is in charge of both hardware and OS design, it is capable of minimalizing memory capacity at an optimized state. Therefore, A7’s RAM will likely be unchanged at 1GB.
Truth or not, it will all be revealed on Sept 10.
