It is true, it is official. The Apple’s new flagship smartphone is called iPhone 5.
In a nutshell, the iPhone 5 has a larger touch screen. It is a 4-inch Retina display (326ppi) with a 1136×640-pixel resolution. As for the connectivity, it features 100Mb LTE and dual-band Wi-Fi. As stated by Apple, iPhone 5 is “the thinnest smartphone” out there, measuring only 7.6mm. It weighs 112 grams, which is less than 4S. In terms of speed and processor, the new iPhone runs on an A6 chipset (the latest improvement by Apple), which will provide two times faster speed and graphics rendition.
The smartphone features 8MP camera sensor (the same as the 4S), however, the very sensor is ¼ tinier on the iPhone 5. One of few pleasant surprises is the interesting panorama mode (already seen on some Android phones). It boast about 25MP resolution, which basically integrates full resolution photos together. The easily noticeable novelty is the upgraded front camera. You will be able to shoot 720p videos now.
Besides these features, there are other interesting things new users will love to explore such as: three microphones, noise-reduction earphones, tinier speaker and completely new Lightning connector. The last-mentioned is 80% tinier, has eight pins and is reversible. The designers decided to make the adapter for the standard 30-pin cable, which is excellent because this means that iPhone 5 accessories can be used with previous iPhone models, and vice versa – you will still be able to use iPhone 4S accessories with the new iPhone thanks to this adapter.
As for the software, all that has been said so far is that the new iPhone 5 runs on iOS 6. We are looking forward to seeing what the new operating system has to offer.
