The iPhone 5 is official

There have been many rumors that have been heard in recent months on a new smartphone from Apple, but today at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, California, has put an end to all speculation, since Phil Schiller has just introduced the new iPhone 5, or whatever it is, the most anticipated phone of 2012.

From the beginning it was thought that Apple surprise us with a spectacular end, and thought well, since the new comes fulfilling expectations and even confirming many of the rumors of those who had spoken before her birth, especially regarding your screen, which has grown significantly, pleasing much of his audience who craved.

New 4-inch screen

His panel is really amazing, as they have managed to make a thinner iPhone with a 4-inch screen and a 16:9 aspect ratio with 1136×640 resolution Retina Display 326ppi pixel density, ie larger, more elongated, equal quality and of course maintaining that quality of tenderness that has characterized the iDevices from the start.

Finally we can see on your screen is not four but five rows of icons thanks to new dimensions, but there ends the advantages of having a longer panel, but, as Schiller says: “you can simply enjoy more of your applications.

Design and Materials

Why a longer iPhone? Simply because it fits in the hand perfectly, and that’s the¬†intention and Apple with their smartphones, as mentioned in the keynote.

It is manufactured entirely from glass and aluminum is thinner and lighter than its predecessors, only 7.6 millimeters thick and weighs 112 grams.

New Processor: A6

The processor of the new iPhone 5 is a completely new model called A6, which according to Phil Schiller summarizes, “is twice as fast as the iPhone 4 A5.

It was hoped that this new smartphone from Apple will incorporate the same processor included in the third generation iPad ie the A5X, however, the Cupertino have chosen a new CPU that looks really amazing, especially in the event show held in conjunction with EA Games, where a new game called Real Racing 3 demonstrated the potential of the GPU graphic incorporating the iPhone 5.

New cameras

The main chamber of the iPhone 5 is named iSight, is 25% smaller than the iPhone 4S and more powerful and stunning, even when the same 8 MP maintains its predecessor, and is that not everything is to have more Megapixels but the advantage of technology.

Your lens is 5 items with f/2.4 aperture. This is much better in low light, has a sapphire crystal to protect the lens and through A6 chip technology, their catches are much faster. With respect to video recording, the main chamber of the new iPhone is able to record 1080p (Full HD).

Also, how Apple introduces “Panorama” to capture panoramic photos, but with great quality, even can take photos up to 28 megapixels thanks to technology that is responsible for aligning the image to compose several catches.

Finally, the front camera can now record video in HD (720p), especially great for video calls via FaceTime.

New connector “Lightning”

As speculated for weeks, the iPhone 5 features a new dock that will supplant the classic 30-pin which was presented on iDevices since 2003, and is referred to as Phil Schiller: “Much has changed in nine years.”

The name of this new port is “Lightning” referring to the rapid speed that will for data transfers. Lightning is reversible, ie, the problem of searching over which is the correct side to try to insert the plug into the port on the iPhone, it is also 80% smaller than its predecessor.

Of course, Apple knows that there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of accessories for the iPhone in the world from bases loaded, portable horns, bases for vehicles and more, so the market will launch a series of adapters designed for this new dock, so you can still use our same accessories, soothing and fantastic idea.

LTE Connectivity

Met and the rumors about his appearance and display, LTE connectivity (4G networks) is also present in the new iPhone, as dozens of rumors claimed. Apple finally takes the next step to have a connection to mobile networks on their smartphones faster and did so with the third-generation iPad.

The big difference with respect to LTE between the new iPad and the iPhone 5, is that the new iPhone has LTE support in many territories worldwide, including Europe and Asia.

Apple announced that the new iPhone will be available at the same prices with the iPhone 4S born, namely:

  • 16GB model for $199.
  • 32GB model for $299.
  • 64GB model for $399.

Of course these prices relate to purchase through an operator, in the case of United States with two-year contract, so we’ll have to wait a little more to know its price in factory released version.

The iPhone 5 may be reserved from September 14 in the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, to be sent on 21 September, the day in which goes on sale .
