The iPhone 5S may be compatible with LTE-Advanced tech, The Korea Times reports.

Korean operator SK Telekom contacted Apple asking that the LTE Advanced standard will be implemented in the iPhone 5S, and at the moment the two companies are in talks over the matter.

The publication claims that Apple is interested in the idea, and that Qualcomm modems could be used to implement this standard.

Theoretically, the LTE Advanced standard, or LTE-A, could provide iPhone owners with surfing speeds of up to 150 Mbps, double than most normal LTE 4G networks.

Cases of the iPhone 5S and cheaper iPhone appear in new images, along with possible specs presented by a publication from Taiwan.

Based on recent rumors, it seem that the device will have 2 GB RAM, 12-megapixel camera, a quad-core graphics processor and possible support for 4G LTE Advanced networks.

Also, it is rumored to come with a fingerprint reader, but we will not know anything for sure until the official presentation.

Regarding the cheaper iPhone, we can see in the picture the rumored cases in different colors.

The iPhone 5S is expected to reach stores worldwide in September, but until then Foxconn must begin the mass production of the device, and in China Apple suppliers have already begun hiring.

According to China Business News the Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou started in the past days a new hiring process for the manufacturing of the iPhone 5S which is expected to hit the market this fall.

Although it is rumored that the next iPhone will be the iPhone 5S, the publication referred to the next Apple smartphone as the “iPhone 6.”

The iPhone 6 is rumored to be launched in 2014.

At WWDC 2013 Apple announced that will give users the possibility to record video content at 60 frames per second.

It seems that Apple is testing at the moment an option which would allow users to record video content at 120 frames per second, and in the video below a demonstration of this idea is shown.

New codes from the iOS 7 betas appear to indicate that a “Mogul” camera mode will be implemented in the next iPhone.

The feature would help record videos at a rate of 120 frames-per-second, allowing users to create slow-motion videos.

“Mogul” would be to the new feature that the iPhone 5S would bring along.

Another interesting iPhone 5S concept with curved display has come to light, presented with a curved screen.
