iPhone 5S will use an A7 chip, larger battery, and dual-LED flash camera

As we get closer to the iPhone 5S' expected September launch, it's almost certain that we are going to see more leaked information pertaining to Apple's next flagship smartphone. A new image reveals a new A7 chip that will most likely power the iPhone 5S.

Apple is expected to launch iOS 7 in the fall, along with the iPhone 5S and a rumored low-cost iPhone. Current rumors have Apple planning a September event with the release of the OS and two new smartphones. The iPhone 5S is expected to keep the same design of the current iPhone 5, but get upgraded internals, which is what Apple typically does with its "S" moniker iPhones. A new leak suggests that the S will stand for speed in the form of a new A7 processor revealed in the newly leaked iPhone 5S prototype images.

MacRumors has received new images in greater detail of what is supposedly an early prototype of the iPhone 5S placed next to an iPhone 5. The site claims the model number of the processor in the iPhone 5S prototype carriers an Apple model of APL0698, which the site believes will be branded as an A7 chip since the original A6 chip used a model number of APL0598. The site also claims that additional markings on the iPhone 5S chip indicates that it uses Elpida DRAM, which includes the same 1GB of RAM used on the A6 chip in the iPhone 5.

The site also revealed images showing that the iPhone 5S will ship with an upgraded camera and include dual-LED flash for improved low-light photography. The site also points out that since the iPhone 5S will ship with a more powerful A7 processor and a dual-LED flash camera, Apple has put a larger battery in the new smartphone. The site claims Apple will use a 5.92 Whr battery in the iPhone 5S compared to the 5.45 Whr battery found in the iPhone 5.

As with all Apple rumors, it's always best to file these in the rumor category and be taken with a big grain of salt. The 5S in this report could be an early prototype and it's very possible Apple could make changes before the final release.
