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.
