SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- Apple may launch a new version of its smartphone in June or July of 2013 and the device could be named iPhone 5S, an analyst at investment bank Jefferies said on Monday.

Jefferies analyst Peter Misek made the predictions in a new research report to clients, the content of which was made public by Forbes and other U.S. media.

Misek said the iPhone 5S is likely to have new features such as a super high-definition camera and screen, a better battery and support for near field communication (NFC), a technology that facilitates data transfer between smartphones and other devices.

The iPhone 5S could also possibly have up to 128 GB of storage and options of six to eight different colors instead of the current black and white.
