New iPhone 5S Component Photos Arrive: Front-Facing Camera and a Mystery
Apple’s next iPhone continues to slowly reveal itself to us piece by piece, as we try to work out just what Apple will be changing for this year’s model, presumed to be the iPhone 5S. About a week ago, we got to check out a bunch of hardware that appeared to be getting ready for the smartphone, and today we follow that up with a couple new ones, including one that’s proving to be quite the little mystery.
First up, there’s a new part for the phone’s front-facing camera. The cable’s a slightly different size and shape, but we’re still in the dark as to what might be different about the camera itself – will it have a higher resolution, or maybe feature a wider-angle lens?
The next one’s a little more nebulous. While sources believe it to come from some future Apple hardware, the jury’s still out on just what it is, or how it might be used. It’s a little unusual looking, and those large holes could suggest attachment to something much bigger. As such, we’re not entirely convinced it will be in the iPhone 5S, but we’ll keep an open mind until its true use can be ascertained.
