The purported new iPhone 5S may feature an S Pen-like stylus technology similar to the one being used on Samsung Galaxy Note 2, according to a new report from tech site Technology and Gadgets.
The site mentioned on its report that the stylus can function as a scanner device that can read product bar codes, act as a power-saving tool for the iPhone, as well as serve as its own unique password security creator for the device.
The site also hinted that iPhone 5S may also feature a Retina display, a new gesture-based technology from Apple, as well as LTE global support. The site also mentioned a couple more exciting possible specs of the said device. You may want to read that site's interesting full report here.
Of course, nobody knows for sure what exact features the next-generation iPhone models might have, but some new technologies and innovation from Apple could certainly help the company compete and stay ahead from its closest rival Samsung which is set to reveal their newest flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S IV on March 14 in New York City.
Meanwhile, Apple is rumored to launch the purported iPhone 5S in June or July. It appears like 2013 is another year that we're gong to witness a battle of epic proportion between tech giants Apple and Samsung in the mobile market arena.
The question is, which company do you think is going to dominate the smartphone and the tablet category for this year? Do you believe Apple needs to have a stylus pen feature with their new generation iPhones in order to look innovative and stay competitive against a growing number of Android phones on the market, including that of Samsung's?
