ThisIsMyNext reports:

Two images labeled ‘iPhone 4S’ have appeared on the Apple Store servers. The images are fairly interesting — they show what looks just like an iPhone 4 running iOS 5, but the antenna design is the same as the CDMA version and the ambient light sensor is faintly visible on the black model — it’s been invisible on previous iPhone 4 press photos.

It will be announced officially at Apple’s media event which is happening right now in Cupertino. Check out all the latest iPhone news here.

Update: Apple has just made the iPhone 4S official.

-Features will include Apple-made A5 Processor with dual core graphics (up to 7 times faster than in the previous iPhone).

-8 hours of talk time, 14 hours of 2g talk time, 6 hours of 3g browsing, 9 hours of Wi-Fi browsing.

-iPhone 4S has both GSM and CDMA support — making it a dual-mode world phone.
