Photo of alleged iPhone 5S mainboard surfaced


You can add the following photo to the endless lineup of rumours about Apple‘s next flagship smartphone(s). What we’re looking at is reportedly the iPhone 5S’ motherboard housing the next-generation A7 CPU. It is speculated that this is a quad-core chip clocked at 1.2GHz with a quad-core PowerVR SGX554MP4 GPU – the same beast is inside the iPad 4. Memory is pegged at 2GB, but with a decrease in its frequency – it will be clocked at 800MHz, instead 1066MHz as the iPhone 5’s 1GB block.

While the photo looks pretty convincing, we advise you to keep a salt shaker around when you read iPhone rumors.
