Guys this is it! The moment you’ve been waiting for is finally here… or maybe not, but still, after 15 months of looming, Apple has finally revealed the next-generation iPhone called iPhone 4S. Now, we don’t have any crystal-ball to predict what happened to “iPhone 5” but so far, iPhone 4S holds some of the predicted specs we’ve covered before.
On a nutshell, its screen is still the same 3.5-inch Retina Display (contrary to popular belief it will be augmented to 4 inch). Its overall appearance looks similar with the previous iPhone 4 model but of course, its innards were beefed out.
For starters, it’ll run an A5 dual-core processor with its own GPU stated by the company to boost its graphics power up to seven times. Its rear camera is now equipped with an 8 megapixel sensor with several goodies: a hybrid IR filter and f/2.4 aperture to improved the clarity of each shots and still images it captures. Naturally, we can expect the camera’s ability to record videos were also improved cranking it up to 1080p (full HD).
For its battery life, nothing really changed and it will last eight hours on 3G calling, 14 hours on 2G and if you’re watching video or browsing the web, Apple states it won’t drain for nine hours.
So what happened to that Antennagate issue we had before? Well, Apple’s engineer manage to eliminate this problem and iOS 5 will be able change its mode so your network won’t dissipate – even you hold it on the lower left, lower right, etc.
Last but not the least, its price will be available for $199, $299 and $399 for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variant respectively (under a carrier contract of course!) and you can pre-order it as soon as Friday (October 7) and expect its shipping date to hit on October 14 on first world countries (US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan).
And one more thing, Apple also confirms – like its not a big news – that Sprint will be joining Verizon and AT&T as iPhone’s official network carrier in United States. Still, no 4G LTE support just the usual HSDPA up to 14.4Mbps of theoretical speed.
