Apple announces iPhone 4S

As expected, Apple today announced iPhone 4S, their fifth generation iPhone that looks exactly the same on the outside but is all new on the inside.

  • Apple A5 chipset, dual core Cortex A9 for 7 times faster graphics. This is basically the iPad 2 chip but probably not clocked as fast.
  • Longer batter life - 8 hrs talk time on 3G, 9 hours browsing on Wi-Fi, 10 hours video, 40 hours music.
  • New intelligent switching between antennas
  • HSPA+ 14.4 (no 21?)
  • CDMA + GSM World phone
  • 8mp rear-facing camera, CMOS backside illuminated sensor, 73% more photons! High end IR filter. Wide f2.4. Super fast photo taking chip. 1.1 seconds for first photo.
  • 1080p, real-time video stabilization, real-time temporal noise reduction.
  • SIRI artificially intelligent voice control (looks great).
  • 16GB, 32 GB, 64GB
  • AT&T/GSM, Verizon, Sprint
