Even though the iPhone 5 of Apple has yet to cool its heels, reports of the supposed iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 have started to gain momentum. A post on a micro-blogging site based in China revealed that the two devices have already made an appearance at a Chinese Apple supplier.

The post by Old Yao on Sina Tech added that the two new iPhone models may be released into the market this year. He indicated that one of his friends was able to catch a glimpse of the two devices. The iPhone 5S reportedly has a similar design as the iPhone 5. On the other hand, the iPhone 6 will be longer, wider, and slimmer.

Apple did not release any statement in connection to the report. However, experience has shown that each time Apple is getting nearer to releasing a new device, reports and speculations about the device normally increase. However, some of these reports are unsubstantiated, which means that the post of Old Yao about the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 should be taken with a good amount of salt.

Previous speculations by analysts hinted at the possibility that the iPhone 5S will be released sometime in June or in July. A redesigned model of the device, which may probably be the iPhone 6 is also speculated to be released at around the same time. 

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities, indicated that the S model of the iPhone 5 will have a similar design as the current model of the iPhone. But it will come with a number of enhancements including a fingerprint sensor and the A7 chip, which will improve the performance of the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 6 will reportedly offer a bigger screen display, which may be more appealing to consumers particularly those who fell in love with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Samsung Galaxy S3.
