iPhone 5 Officially Announced: A6 CPU, 2x Faster, 2x Better Graphics, 4-inch Display
After loads of rumors and leaks, the much awaited iPhone 5 has finally been released. At Apple’s San Francisco Event yesterday, the tech-firm unveiled it’s new iPhone 5 which promises 2x Graphics and CPU power of an iPhone 4S, yet consuming very little power. This new device is powered by an Apple A6 chip and is said to be” the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever” weighting only 112 grams. This new iPhone 5 has a Aluminium and Glass finish which not only adds elegance but a touch of beauty to this powerful piece of creativity.
Although, the screen of an iPhone 5 has been up-sized to 4 inches, one will still feel extremely comfortable using iPhone 5 as it still retains it’s previous iPhone 4 width. This means, that you can now view more emails and see more of every webpage. This larger screen will now allow for an extra set of apps to be displayed. iMovie, Garage Band and The iWork suite have all been updated to take advantage of this elongated screen. However, one weird fact still remains unanswered, Steve Jobs once said that “no one” would want a big phone, but this new Apple device dosent seem to obey want the former mastermind of Apple said. Anyways, the 326 ppi screen of iPhone 5 sitting at a resolution of 1,136 x 640 climbs one step closer to 1080p but still falling short, however ensuring crispier graphics.
The iPhone 5 is powered by a 8 Megapixel iSight Camera, backside-illuminated sensor and f/2.4 aperture size. The camera of an iPhone 5 is similar to the iPhone 4S’ camera and offers 1080p video recording at a whopping 30 FPS. The secondary, front-facing camera is a 1.2 MP camera which supports 720p reocording along with online video calls via LTE and WiFi. Lastly, a new mode called Panorama has been introduced which allows a number of photos to be combined into one photo of a shocking 28 Mega Pixel.
Lighting Connector and Apple EarPods:
In this latest smartphone from Apple, a new dock connector has been introduced called the “Lighting Connector”. It is fairly smaller than the existing 30 pin connector. Dont worry, you can still use your existing accessories using the “Lightning to 30-pin Adapter”. Another new addition to the iPhone 5 are the new earphones called EarPods whoch promise much more comfort, fitting and better quality sound.
A6 CPU AND LTE
The new iPhone 5 is powered by Apple’s A6 Chip, although Apple has decided to stay mum on the exact tech specs, a noticeable change has been seen by the guys at EnGadget. As they say, “use it for half an hour and you’ll have a hard time going back to a slower chip. The transitions are smoother, switching between apps is a bit quicker and everything just generally feels incrementally faster.” Another great thing the iPhone 5 carries is it’s support for lightning-fast LTE speeds, with a maximum speed on up-to 100MB/s things could get blazing fast.
