iPhone 4S officially announced!

Apple has finally unveiled its next-generation smartphone and, as expected in previous leaks, calls it the iPhone 4S. It looks the same in the outside and all the new goodness are found inside.

The iPhone 4s features a faster Apple A5 chip that’s already found on the iPad 2, an 8MP autofocus camera with 1080p video recording capabilities and a dual-core graphics that promises up 7x better performance.

The most interesting part is that the iPhone 4S supports GSM (with SIM card) and CDMA (without SIM card) networks. No more separate versions for different networks.

Battery life is impressive too at 10 hours on video playback (just like the iPad).

It’s now also HSDPA capable (now up to 14.4Mbps) and EVDO-capable as well so it will definitely be able to maximize the HSPA+ networks of Globe and Smart (although I’m guessing it will still be exclusive to Globe again).

Apple iPhone 4s specs:
3.5″ display @ 960×640 pixels
Apple 1GHz A5 dual-core chip
16GB, 32GB & 64GB internal storage
HSDPA, EVDO 14.4Mbps
WiFi 802.11b/g/n
GPS w/ aGPS
Gyroscope
8MP camera with LED flash
1080p video recording
2nd front-facing camera
2 mics w/ noise-canceling
Bluetooth 4.0
iOS 5

As for the price — it’s $199 for the 16GB, $299 for the 32GB and $399 for the 64GB — all comes with a 24-month contract with your carrier.

In the Philippines, expect the iPhone 4S to be priced the same as the iPhone 4 — around the Php37k (16GB) and Php42k (32GB) mark with the 64GB possibly hitting the Php47k range. Pre-order starts on October 7 and release is on October 14 but that’s for the US. It’s unknown when it will be for the Philippines but Singapore is getting it on October 28.

And sorry, there’s no iPhone 5.

  4. If you feel your website is loaded with images and graphics then you should bring down the file sizes of these files as well to save on bandwidth image editing
    software to somewhat decrease the quality
    of JPEG files. Since the development of many web hosting
    companies in India, it has become very easy to find affordable web
    hosting deals. The internet is a popular means of finding out information on anyone, anything, or
    anyplace.
