After much anticipation and to the disappointment of some, Apple unveiled its latest iPhone release for this year with the newly revamped iPhone 4S. First up was a new A5 dual-core processor which boasts 2x the speeds of the iPhone 4 predecessor and 7x the graphics processing thanks to a dual-core graphics chip. A strong suit of the iPhone 4S is a new camera featuring an 8MP sensor and lens combo translating to 30% greater sharpness due to a five-element design, and a maximum aperture of f/2.4. Combined with new photographic internals, better color reproduction and faster captures are all in the cards. The popularity of the iPhone 4 made it one of the most popular cameras platforms for people sharing photos on Flickr and this trend will look to continue. Not to be outdone is the video capabilities of the phone which will include full 1080p HD recording with image stabilization and noise reduction. One of the big software enhancements is the creation of Siri, a sentient and intelligent personal assistant that can answer any questions you may have.
A pre-order beings October 7 and a release is set for a week later on October 14.
