Photos were leaked by Samsung hours before Apple's Let's Talk iPhone event on Tuesday revealing the phones high revolution screen, but not much else.
Meanwhile, Apple revealed its iPhone 4S, and although consumers were disappointed not to glimpse a version of the iPhone 5, many were still impressed by the new features:
Here are the top ten perks from Tuesday's Let's Talk iPhone Event:
The A5 Chip: The new iPhone may have the same retina screen but the interior has had an entire revamp with the latest A5 chip making its way into the phone.
It's Fast: With a Dual-core CPU the new iPhone is 2x as fast at CPU tasks and up to 7x faster than the previous iPhone, which is a great perk for games. Data can also be downloaded twice as fast as before. Theoretical max performance used to be 5.8 up and 7.2 down - now doubles to almost 14.4Mbps down.
Second Wireless System: The new iPhone can now intelligently switch between two antennas between send and receive to produce even higher calling quality. This has never been done in a phone before.
Brand New Camera: As predicted the iPhone 4S comes with an 8 megapixel sensor that gets 73% more light than the iPhone 4 sensor, and is 1/3rd faster. A high-end IR filter has also been fitted for greater accuracy and uniformity.
New Lens: The brand new camera lens has five elements and goes down to a wide f2.4 aperture
Apple designed ISP: The ISP enables face detection in photos and lets in a lot more light while shooting.
HD Video: The new iPhone 4S camera comes with stunning HD video with 1080p real-time video image stabilization.
Intelligent Assistant: With the new iPhone you can actually talk to your device through an integrated intelligent assistant who gets things done just by asking. Eg. What is the weather like? Where is this restaurant? Your device gives you all the answers you are looking for. Compose and dictate email right to your device. Set timers. Look up contacts, create notes, and search the Web.
More Languages: The intelligent assistant will have built-in with support for English, French, and German. More languages will be added over time.
It's out: iPhone 4S 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.
