NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — While there’s still no official confirmation of what Apple plans to show off Tuesday, it’s the worst kept secret in tech: we’re getting new iPhones.
We may not know everything about the new iPhone, but we have a pretty decent idea of what to expect.
As usual, Apple will update its flagship iPhone model, which is expected to be called the iPhone 5S. It’s not likely to be a radical redesign, but Apple still might have a few new things to brag about.
For starters, the iPhone 5S is expected to come in a gold – or champagne, depending on who you talk to – color. The first hint of this came from a leaked factory image of an iPhone part, and then another, and another. AllThingsD eventually found trusted sources to confirm the rumor.
It’s also possible the 5S will come in a lighter shade of grey, providing a fourth option for iPhone buyers.
The iPhone is also expected to have upgraded hardware, which should come as no surprise. Many believe the iPhone 5S will feature Apple’s A7 processor, a dual-core chip promising31% more computing power.
According to other leaks, the iPhone 5S will have an improved camera and an upgraded,dual-LED flash to make your night shots look less washed out.
Perhaps the most exciting rumor is that the iPhone 5S will have a fingerprint sensor where the home button is traditionally located. Rumors of this first popped up in January, when Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst with a good record, made mention of it.
