[Developing] The iPhone5

35alpn9.jpg

The new iPhone is finally official. Apple has named its sixth-generation smartphone the iPhone 5 and Phil Schiller is presently detailing its full set of features, specs, and release details.

Measuring 7.6mm in thickness and 112 grams in weight, this is the thinnest and lightest iPhone that Apple has ever made, and is constructed "entirely" out of glass and aluminum. The device shown behind Schiller looks pretty much identical to all the leaks and mockups we've seen in the past few weeks — looks like Apple wasn't able to keep a lid on its most anticipated product after all.

"We're able to add a 5th row of icons."

And yes, it has a 4-inch display! The new screen resolution is the oft-rumored 1136 x 640, meaning the display of the iPhone 4 and 4S has simply been elongated, both physically and in terms of pixel rows. To quote Phil, "you see, we're able to add a 5th row of icons." All of Apple's own software has been updated for the new resolution and screen size, while older third-party apps will be letterboxed where necessary. Also in line with pre-launch rumors, the new iPhone's display features in-cell touchscreen technology, integrating the touch sensors right into the display itself. This should make for a thinner panel, though Apple also touts it as "the most accurate display in the industry."

Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T LTE flavors will all be supported by the iPhone 5

There's also LTE connectivity, with a single chip, single radio, and what Apple describes as a "dynamic" antenna. Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T LTE flavors will all be supported by the iPhone 5. Apple rates this new handset's battery life at 8 hours of LTE web browsing.

A new 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a hybrid IR filter will be present on the iPhone 5, with a promise of improved low light performance and 40 percent faster photo capture. The sensor is backside-illuminated. Catching up with the competition, Apple is also adding in a new Panorama mode to its camera software. Much like with HTC's ImageSense, the new iPhone 5 camera will allow you to also take still photos while recording video, which maxes out at 1080p resolution.

The iPhone 5's processor has been upgraded to Apple's A6 SoC, which Apple suggests will result in double the CPU performance and two times faster graphics. There are three microphones in the iPhone 5, which should aid with noise reduction during calls, while the loudspeaker has been shrunken by 20 percent with an improved design.

Members of Open Carnage never see off-site ads.

So, basically, there really aren't any new features other than LTE? Surely they could have thrown in that holographic keyboard everybody is expecting for some reason.

Something like console quality gaming. (inb4lolconsoleisshit)

White or black...cant decide D:

I love the black look, but I wanted to get white cause I'm sick of having a black phone. But now the black looks the best imo. Damn it.

The description is so dumbed down it's quite amusing, lol.

They gives numbers without any sources. I'd say they could've just gotten a 3rd party company to make some user-friendly graphs but Apple's way too arrogant for that. :lol:
