Washington: American technological giant Apple is offering its flagship device iPhone 5S 16GB unlocked on sale for $619.99.

Some people prefer to purchase unlocked smartphones so they don’t have to sign a 2-year contract with a carrier and ultimately have to wait two years before they’re eligible to purchase a new handset at a subsidized price.

This is especially true for iPhone fans that typically like to upgrade to Apple’s latest smartphone on a yearly basis. Apple sells its latest flagship iPhone 5s through its retail and online store and offers consumers either carrier-subsidized models or unlocked iPhone 5s smartphones. If you’re in the market for an unlocked iPhone 5s, eBay is running a great deal on the 16GB model.

The iPhone 5s features a gorgeous 4-inch Retina display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 and a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch (ppi). The smartphone uses a powerful 64-bit A7 processor, which makes the iPhone 5s the first smartphone to ship with a desktop-class processor on board. It also uses the M7 coprocessor, which allows for better power efficiency and is able to track movement to be used with countless fitness apps created for the device.

What really makes the iPhone 5s stand out is the way Apple has deployed biometric security to keep the contents inside secure. The all-new Touch ID feature uses a fingerprint scanner that has been built inside the iPhone 5s’ Home button. Users can use Touch ID to unlock the smartphone and also purchase apps, music, movies, and books from iTunes using their fingerprint instead of having to type in a password.

Apple has also packed in an 8-megapixel iSight rear camera with a new slow motion recording feature, autofocus, dual-LED flash, and its True Tone flash allows for rich and true colors in low-light. The 5s also includes a front facing 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera with face detection that has the ability to record 720p video @30fps. Its wireless connectivity options consist of a 4G LTE radio, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with LE (low energy), and GPS. Its battery will provide up to 10 hours of talk time, 250 hours of standby time, and 10 hours of Internet use.

You can purchase the unlocked iPhone 5s in choice of Silver or Gold for $619.99, which also includes free shipping.
