March 28, 2013 at 6:32 PM

CUPERTINO, Calif., March 28 (UPI) -- A confidential manufacturer catalogue showing accessories for iPhone devices suggests a June launch of the next version of the Apple phone, a tech website says.

The timeframe for the unveiling of the iPhone 5S suggested by the catalog of new cases and chargers would match projections made by a number of industry analysts, TG Daily reported Thursday.

Further evidence come from a report by DigiTimes that "Apple's supply chain will start shipping the components for the iPhone 5S at the end of May, so the next generation smartphone will likely have a chance of showing up in the third quarter."

Most analysts predict the next-generation of Apple's iconic device will have a Super HD display and a faster processor.

A 12-megapixel camera and support for near-field communications are also being rumored, along with the possibility of wireless charging.

Pricing predictions put the iPhone 5S, with carrier contract, at $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for 64GB.
