Apple iPhone 5 Announced!

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.

Yes, I’m talking about Globe Telecom who just announced yesterday that it’s going to offer the “revolutionary Nano-SIMs” in Globe stores beginning this month. And though Globe Telecom, in a blog post, just said that it has ordered as much as more Nano-SIMs than its regular SIM stocks” – in anticipation of high customer demand when smartphones using such type of SIM hit the market – it’s actually an indication that Globe is prepping for the land fall of the iPhone 5 on its warehouse very, very soon!

Why just iPhone 5, you ask? Well, so far I haven’t heard yet of any other smartphones featuring Nano-SIM, but back in July, it has been reported that several Apple partner-carriers in Europe are purportedly stockpiling Nano-SIM cards in preparation in time for the iPhone 5 launch. And yes, Globe Telecom isn’t the only telco amassing these tiny SIMs; but knowing Globe when it comes to making announcement about the iPhone – I would put all my cards on the table that the recent announcement has something to do with #GlobeiPhone5. And that complements to previous rumours that the Apple iPhone 5 will indeed feature Nano-SIM.
