Apple’s Phil Schiller took the stage today at Apple’s media event in Cupertino to officially unveil the iPhone 4S, Apple’s latest entry in the iPhone family. As widely expected, the iPhone 4S looks exactly like the existing iPhone 4 model — industrial design with metal band in the middle, glass front and rear panels.
The iPhone 4S is powered by Apple’s dual-core A5 chip, which will allow for graphics up to 7 times faster. To demonstrate the 4S’ graphic capabilities, Apple invited Epic Games on stage to demo Infinity Blade 2, which will be available on December 1. In spite of the iPhone 4S’ faster processor and dual-core graphics, Apple is guaranteeing 8 hours of 3G talk time, 6 hours of 3G browsing, and up to 10 hours of video/40 hours of music.
The iPhone 4S comes with a new wireless system as well — downloads are faster over 3G with up to 14.4Mbps down. The iPhone 4S Cases is a world-phone as previously rumored, integrating both GSM and CDMA technologies in a single, updated antenna design.
