    I can't seem to find Ghz or RAM numbers.

    I assume its 1.2Ghz underclocked to 1Ghz + 1GB RAM?

    Can anyone confirm?

    Probably because it wont make a difference whether its quadcore or not. iPhone aint about the specs, its about the experience.:apple::apple::apple::apple::apple:

    It's already well documented that the new phone is noticeably faster than the 4/4S. It doesn't matter what the exact specs are if you're already a satisfied iPhone user and are stepping up to the new model.

    We already know its faster than the 4s. Can't make a direct comparison to other devices anyway.

    You're referring to the .0001% of buyers who care? The rest don't. My wife likely thinks it's full of rainbows and pixie dust - if she thinks about it at all.

    What else is new? Apple never releases detailed specs on their iOS devices. It has a customized A6 processor, which we think is a Cortex A15. We think it has 1GB of RAM since the old one had 512MB. We know it has a Qualcomm chipset based on the FCC filings. But beyond that, it's mostly just speculation until someone tears it down. What kind of processor or how much RAM a phone has just isn't that important to most people.

    How much RAM and what kind of processor does your dishwasher have, or the automatic transmission in your car? That's what a phone is like to most people.

    Why does it matter? So you can apply the megahertz myth?

    Even if it was clocked at 200MHz, as long as it's super-fast in real-world usage, that's what matters. Even an iPhone 3GS (single core at 600MHz) ran iOS more fluidly than any Android phone (including dual/quad core ones at up to 1.4Ghz) pre-Jelly Bean/Project Butter.

    Let's wait for benchmarks, those are way more useful than just raw numbers. Apple already gave us a couple compared to the 4S and historically their benchmarks have been pretty accurate, even more controversial ones like the A5X vs Tegra 3 comparison. Supposing they are not lying, the iPhone 5 will be the fastest phone on the market both in CPU and GPU for a while.

    Anyway, if you really want to know just for the heck of it, Anandtech's estimate is that it's a dual-core Cortex A15 based on Samsung's 32nm LP HK+MG process running at 1GHz. RAM will probably be 1GB.
