iPhone 5S to offer ‘champagne gold’ color, 128GB storage options, move up to 64-bit computing, analyst predicts

“A widely-cited analyst echoed previous rumors about the iPhone 5S while adding that there will be a 128GB option for the new phone and possibly a 64-bit processor,” Brooke Crothers reports for CNET.

“Expect a new 128GB storage option for the iPhone 5S, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Thursday,” Crothers reports. “In February, Apple began offering a 128GB option on the iPad 4 for the first time.”

Crothers reports, “And gold will be a color option on the upcoming phone, Kuo said, echoing a previous report from Japanese site Macotakara. The analyst also claimed Thursday that the iPhone 5S will include a new A7 system-on-a-chip (SoC) based on ARM’s 64-bit ARMv8 architecture.”

  1. You may hate gold color (I know i do) but there are plenty of people that would snap one up.

    the gold ipod mini a while back actually sold quite well.

    hope they release a silver metallic 5s !

  2. The 128GB storage option will be the #1 reason for me to advance from 64GB iP5 to 5S just as I did from 64GB iPad 4 to 128GB iPad 4 in March. Can never have enough storage space.
