Apple announces the new iPhone 5





iphone5

Today Apple introduced the new iPhone 5. It has a new design, however it looks a bit like tall iPhone 4S.

It is 18% thinner than the 4S, just 7.6mm. It's even 20% percent lighter at 112 grams. The in-cell retina display is 4-inch with 1136 x 640 resolution. Apple says new iPhone 5 has a better color saturation with full sRGB rendering. That new longer screen allows for an extra set of icons to be displayed on the home screen, and first party apps have already been tweaked to take advantage of additional pixels. The tweaked ratio puts the iPhone 5 display closer to 16:9, but it's not quite there.

iPhone 5 supports worldwide LTE as well as HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA. 802.11n Wi-Fi can connect at 2.4ghz and 5ghz. Performance is said to be 2 times faster with new A6 processor. iSight camera features 8-megapixel sensor, backside flash, hybrid IR filter, five-element lens, sapphire lens, f/2.4 aperture, next-generation ISP, spatial noise reduction, smart filter, better low-light performance, 40 percent faster on photo capture, and HD video recording (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio.
Front FaceTime HD camera has 1.2MP sensor, improved video stability and is capable of recording HD video (720p) up to 30 fps. Audio system was also improved. iPhone 5 has 3 mics and improved speakers.
