New Apple iPhone 4S

After a long wait, Apple finally announced their new generation of iPhone, which is iPhone 4S at Malaysia local time around 1.53am 5th October at Apple Town Hall in Cupertino, California, United States of America. So for those who were expected iPhone 5, should wait another year or two.

Excited about this new Apple iPhone 4S ? Haha… Let’s go straight to it’s tech specs :

iPhone 4S size and shape are totally same as iPhone 4, which is
Height: 4.5 inches (115.2 mm)
Width: 2.31 inches (58.6 mm)
Depth: 0.37 inch (9.3 mm)

Oh ya, the new iPhone 4S is 1g heavier than iPhone 4. 😉 It has black and white color, in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacity.

The most interesting for us is the new iPhone 4S come with new Dual-Core A5 chip processor like in iPad 2. However, we have no idea at all the clockspeed is 1GHz or more, and the RAM is still unknown. And we believed that it’s still 512MB like what in the iPhone 4.
