+ - iPhone 5S and lower-cost sibling coming this summer?->

iComp writes "The next iteration of the iPhone – likely called the iPhone 5S, according to rumor-mongers – will be released this summer and will include a fingerprint sensor, improved camera, and more-powerful processor. It will also be joined by a lower-cost, less spiffy sibling.

That's the take-away from a pair of reports on Tuesday, one from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and a second from the Apple-centric website iMore, after speaking with the ever-loquacious "sources familiar with the plans."

Kuo, reports Edible Apple, foresees two iPhones appearing this summer. The new flagship iPhone 5S will be powered by a new A7 chip baked in a 28-nanometer process, a fingerprint-sensing authentication system based on tech that Apple acquired when it borged AuthenTec last fall, and an improved camera produced by Sony that has a low-light capability of 2.0 and a "smart flash" with both white and yellow LEDs, presumably to improve white balance."
