    If it's true I can see a lot of competition between them and Samsung.

    Well Apple said not long ago you won't see NFC in their phones any time in the near future so I doubt that part.

    I think the whole colour thing is more to compete with Nokia than Samsung.

    I meant the hardware meaning the screen size, etc. that Apple has skimped on for more than half a decade. If you interpreted it that way, okay...

    Colors would be a revolutionary feature.

    Yeh, I also don't see NFC coming to the next gen iPhone as Apple believe 'Passbook' can do things that NFC allows you to do

    . I could see more colour options for the iPhone though. 128Gb storage, you kidding me, doubt there will be a 128Gb option in the next iPhone, my MBA has that. If there was a 128Gb option for the iPhone it would probably be priced the same as the MBA 11 inch.

    This has been rumored for about two to three years (the NFC and 128GB). Hopefully if it is true, it will lower the price of other items Apple sells. And hopefully some of these things are true like the iPad Mini...which had been a rumor for so long, but finally is a reality.

    Yeh, actually thinking about the memory again, flash memory is becoming cheaper and in greater capacities. So maybe we could be reaching the time where Apple will start selling 32Gb devices for the price that 16Gb devices are currently, and so on. So the 16Gb could be removed and there could be 32Gb, 64Gb and 128Gb memory options instead for better prices.

    I think it will be a couple years before that happens.
