The new iPhone from Apple looks set to only be an incremental upgrade after an analyst noted the new model will likely be called the iPhone 4S.

In a similar move from the iPhone 3G to the 3GS (which saw only a slight processor improvement, video camera and compass added) the iPhone 4S will only feature slight spec upgrades, according to Jefferies and Co. analyst Peter Misek:

These claims of 'better cameras' have been corroborated by leaked images of the new cameras from to be used in the next version of the phone - the iPhone 4S will reportedly have a separate flash from the main sensor.

The iPhone 4 has the flash built directly into the camera unit, so the new design could herald an even thinner iPhone 4S with that larger screen so many have been harping on about for months.
