Apple at an event in San Francisco today unveiled the new iPhone. Dubbed as iPhone 5, the new Apple phone is based on the lines we’ve seen or heard in the past few months. The iPhone 5 is one of the lightest and thinnest smartphones in the market that weighs 112 grams and is 7.6mm thick. Clad in glass and aluminum, the iPhone 5 now comes with a larger display, measuring 4-inches and a resolution of 1136×640 pixels, thus maintaining the 326ppi Retina Display; iOS 6; Ultrafast Wireless which is nothing but support for HSPA+, DC-HSDPA and LTE; dual-band Wi-Fi that gives data throughput of up to 150Mbps; Apple A6 processor that boasts two times graphics and CPU performance; battery life of up to 8 hours on 3G or LTE.
iPhone 5’s iSight features an 8 megapixel camera with backside illumination sensor and hybrid IR filter, panorama support, shared photo streams to quickly share photos with family and friends, full HD video recording support and 720p front-facing camera for FaceTime over Wi-Fi and cellular networks.
Apple also changed the ubiquitous connector cable with a new one called Lightning. Lightning is 80 percent smaller than the current cable and enables better durability and performance. Finally, the iPhone 5 will be bundled with the EarPods that are designed to fit naturally and improve acoustic quality that is generally found in higher-end earphones.
iPhone 5 will be available in white and black for $199 (16GB), $299 (32GB), $399 (64GB) on contract with pre-orders starting this Friday and shipping to customers on September 21 in US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
