iPhone 5S gets glitzy? Sapphire home button, gold option
Call it the iPhone 5S rumor roundup, bling edition: The champagne gold option seems a bit farfetched, but a Japanese Apple site reiterates the speculation.
Gold and sapphire. No, we're not talking about Rolex wristwatches but the iPhone 5S. All rumors of course.
The reason? Sapphire prevents the button from being scratched and a slightly convex shape creates room for the fingerprint sensor, according to the analyst.
Note that there has also been speculation thatfingerprint sensing chores.
A fingerprint reader could pave the way for more secure mobile payments or be used as a more secure way to access a user's Apple account.
The KGI analyst also mentioned the new iPhone 5S will keep the 8-megapixel sensor but make other camera improvements.
Another notable iPhone 5S rumor has it sporting a new Apple A7 processor.
