UPDATE: iPhone 4S is confirmed shipped with 512MB. Apple has yet to confirm how much RAM the iPhone 4S has. Based on the current A5 configuration in the iPad 2, we expect the iPhone 4S to have 512MB of RAM. Some observers are saying the iPhone 4S will ship with 1GB of RAM. Guess we will have to wait till it ships to know for sure.

With the iPhone 4S revealed, let’s compare it against other flagship smart phones. We compare it spec by spec against the BlackBerry Bold 9900, HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XE, Nokia N9, Samsung Galaxy S II and the existing iPhone 4.

We’ve also included the Nexus Prime which is expected to be revealed next week with its unconfirmed specs.

While the iPhone 4S is similar in terms of dimensions compared to the original iPhone 4, it is actually 3g heavier. Just to recap, internally the 4S runs on a dual-core A5 processor, increased RAM, a new 8MP camera and supports both CDMA/GSM networks.

With all of them compared, the iPhone 4S isn’t really ground breaking. If this is going to be Apple’s flagship device for another year, they are seriously being left in the dust as the Android contenders are gearing up in terms of hardware specs.
