Apple iPhone 5? Nope. It’s the 4S
Apple has announced its next iPhone and it won’t be called the iPhone 5, but rather the iPhone 4S.
From the outside, the iPhone 4S looks just like the iPhone 4 — which may disappoint some hoping for a new form factor.
On the inside however, the iPhone 4S is a new device, said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
Most notably, perhaps, is the addition of Apple’s dual-core A5 chip, which is built by Samsung.
The A5 in the iPhone 4S will offer seven-times faster graphics for better mobile gameplay and is “up to” twice as fast overall as the A4 chip in the iPhone 4, Schiller said.
So, what do you think so far? Are you excited for the iPhone 4S? Bummed it’s not a proper iPhone 5 with a new look and a bigger screen? Sticking with Android or Windows Phone? Sound off in the comments.
