“It’s the most amazing iPhone yet.”
No iPhone 5, It’s Apple iPhone 4S – Apple 4th October 2011 “Let’s Talk iPhone” event is now over and disappointingly there’s no iPhone 5 announced, it’s just a change of hardware in the current Apple iPhone 4 and they called it the iPhone 4S, just like the iPhone 3gS update 2 years ago.
It’s 100% identical with the current iPhone 4, but in the inner part, the hardware is equip with the same processor that powers the Apple iPad 2 – Apple A5 Dual-core CPU, which enables 7x faster graphic performance, the camera is now upgraded to 8megapixel camera on par with other smartphone, sporting a new optics with backlight illuminating sensor which means capturing clearer picture in low light, f2.4 aperture lens. On the other hand, Apple has fixed the “antennagate” problem which the phone is also a “World Phone”, supporting both GSM and CDMA network. No 4G though.
Another thing is – Siri Assistant, a voice guide on the phone that talks to you is included, which is just another app to promote the iPhone 4S. No words mention that Siri Assistant will be available on other device besides the Apple iPhone 4S, it might be the premium app for the 4S.
So in short, it’s just better CPU, improved camera, “World Phone”, iOS5 equipped and no redesign. I was and believes many were hoping for a bigger screen iPhone, a redesigned, bigger battery capacity (though Apple claims iPhone 4S has better battery life with the same capacity), as well as NFC or 4G-equiped. Unfortunately, not.
No news about Malaysia’s availability and price. Our closest nation, Singapore will get it on 28th October 2011.
