Since there was no live streaming of the ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’ Keynote last night, I was following the event as it unfolds on live.gdgt.com.

So it was the moment that everyone’s been waiting for, the launch of a new generation iPhone (sort of) the iPhone 4S. Some may be disappointed that Apple won’t be releasing a total redesigned of iPhone and what we’ve been speculating was pretty much right.

Here are the detailed hardware specifications and features:

  • Apple’s A5 processor: dual-core CPU, 2x as fast at CPU tasks; dual-core graphics, up to 7x faster than iPhone 4.
  • 8-megapixel camera with 3264 x 2448 pixel resolution; that’s 60% more pixels compared to its predecessor.
  • CMOS backside illuminated sensor — allows the camera sensor to get 73% more light than the iPhone 4 sensor, and 1/3rd faster.
  • High-end IR (infrared) filter for the camera for greater accuracy and uniformity.
  • Five lens elements with a wide lens of f2.4.
  • 1080p HD video enabled with real-time video image stabilization and real-time temporal noise reduction.
  • Extended battery capacity with up to 8 hours of talk time.
  • World phone that allows roaming on GSM and CDMA on a single device.
  • It can now intelligently switch between two antennas between send and receive to make better call quality.
  • Data can now download up to 2x as fast. Theoretical max performance used to be 5.8Mbps up and 7.2Mbps down — now doubles to almost 14.4Mbps down.
  • Capacity 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
  • Color Black and White.

The feature that really sets apart iPhone 4S from all other competitors is Siri. Siri assistant is an improved version of voice control. Siri covers most aspects of the device through voice alone. It will not be supported on the iPhone 4.

Finally pricing – it will be available in black and white, 16GB for $199, 32GB for $299, and 64GB for $399. 64GB is the first time in an iPhone. The iPhone 4 will now be available in black and white for just $99. The iPhone 3GS in 8GB is available for free.

Pre-orders will start on October 7th, and then launching on the 14th at USA, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan.

False rumor? iPhone 5 and larger screen. Apple’s saving those for the next one.

Share this and be awesome!
