Apple iPhone fans in India have now something to rejoice about as both Airtel and Aircel will bring the latest iPhone 4S to India soon. Both the operators are likely to offer attractive money back tariff plans for the iPhone buyers.
“Aircel brings iPhone 4S to India…launch details coming soon,” Aircel announced on its official Facebook page. A similar update followed on Airtel’s website.
Both the operators are currently offering iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with up to 100 per cent money back offers through discounted tariff plans.
The iPhone 4S comes with the new Siri voice-activated personal assistant, A5 processor, CMDA+GSM chip, 1080p video capability, faster download speeds, improved graphics, improved camera and an intelligent switching antenna. The iPhone 4S also has a new operating system – iOS 5, as well but that will be available for older iPhones as well.
In terms of design, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S look identical as both have Glass Sandwich design. The letter S in the name iPhone 4S probably stands for improved ‘speed’. The storage has also gone too high, up to 64 GB. The iPhone 4 storage went up to 32 GB only. The image quality is expected to be better even in low light conditions, the video resolution would also be better.
The iPhone 4S comes with an 8 megapixel camera compared to the 5 megapixel of iPhone 4. In terms of pixels, the front facing camera goes from 720 pixels to 1080 pixels though it still remains a 0.3 MP one. The iPhone 4S also has hybrid GSM/ CDMA cellular connectivity whereas the iPhone 4 had quad-band GSM/CDMA cellular connectivity.
Will the iPhone 4 be discontinued?
Unlike iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4 will not make sense along with the 4S. However, you never know in India after all five generation of Maruti Zen co-existed in India.
