In a scheduled event today, Apple has already announced the much anticipated iPhone 5. Apple’s six generation iPhone received too much hype, specs leaks, and now – it’s official. Apple’s next generation smartphone is simply named as the iPhone 5.

The iPhone 5 carries Apple’s latest firmware, iOS 6, which is set to drop on September 19th. Flaunting a 4-inch 1136 x 640 resolution (at 326ppi) Retina Display, the iPhone 5 is powered by Apple’s owned A6 chipset. The iPhone 5 weighs around 112g, making it 20% lighter than the iPhone 4S. And Apple says at 7.6mm thick, it’s 18% thinner than the iPhone 4S and it’s the thinnest iPhone yet.

The iPhone 5 brings an improved data speed performance with support for HSPA+ at 21Mbps, DC-HSDPA at 42Mbps, and LTE at max of 100Mbps. Unfortunately, the iPhone 5 doesn’t have an NFC out of the box. For photography and videography enthusiasts, the iPhone 5 features an 8MP camera with Autofocus and LED Flash, capable of 1080p Full HD video recording/playback, and it comes with a stunning 720p HD Facetime camera as well.

With iPhone 5, Apple made significant changes to Siri. The revamped personal digital assistant can now provide users with the latest updates from sports events such as giving scorecards, or the best movies showing in theatres. And the best update to Siri so far is its capability to launch apps, which we didn’t see in iOS 5.

The iPhone 5 will be available in two colors, either with Black or White frontage. The white version has an aluminium back while the black model has an anodized backing. Prices of the handset are as follows: $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, and $399 for 64GB — of course, with contracts. Pre-order for the iPhone 5 begins this Friday, September 14th, and will begin shipping on the 21st in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. And Apple says it will be available to 20 more countries next month.
