  • iPhone 3GS Hardware Specs Leaking Out


    The S is for speed and for more speed one needs some more power. T-Mobile Netherlands has posted specifications for the new iPhone 3G S processor revealing a 600 MHz chip inside.

    The new chip and more ram is how the iPhone 3G S is 50% faster than the iPhone 3G. For the iPhone 3G S Apple has bumped up processor speed from 400 MHz to 600 MHz and doubled the RAM going from 128 MB to 256 MB.

    While no more details about the processor in the iPhone 3G S have emerged yet we are expecting it to be some sort of ARM 7 processor previously rumored.

    Also, Apple's "iPhone How To" area has an entry on cleaning the iPhone which mentions the new iPhone 3GS will have an Oleophobic screen. You were hoping for perhaps OLED? Well how about an anti-climactic anti-oil screen?

    To clean iPhone, unplug all cables and turn off iPhone (press and hold the Sleep/ Wake button, then slide the onscreen slider). Then use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPhone. If your iPhone has an oleophobic coating on the screen (iPhone 3G S only), simply wipe your iPhone’s screen with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove oil left by your hands and face.
    Here's to all you looking forward to simply wiping on June 19th.

      I thought the 3G processor was 620MHz? Or was it that speed and simply underclocked to 400MHz?

      I guess it depends on how you do the math. 400mhz X 50% = 200 mhz. So its 200 mhz faster.

      if you were smart you'd know its not a fail because 50% means half...so saying the iphone 3gs is 50% faster than the 3g means its actually slower

      It's a two part statement. It's
      1- 50% (400x0.5 = 200)
      2- faster (value is ADDED to current specs)

      Are you people really this dumb?

      I got so much more expectation for the new iphone. But the new 3G S seem a big upgrade from the 2G I'm currently using.

      Yea I like the math: 600mhz CPU (up from 412MHz) and 256MB ram, double what we have now = my preorder today

      I wonder why the 'leak' when this is what was rumored. Why does Apple have to hide every friggin thing?

      Much better news for me, not as disappointed now as this was exactly all I wanted in the new iPhone (except for a design change, which I am still disappointed with).
