Apple just launched iPhone5 with iOS6.
Details are in:- Live iPhone 5 launch coverage – gdgt live.
The new iPhone 5 is 7.66mm thick, almost a whopping 18% thinner than its predecessor iPhone 4S, weighs just 112 gram, again 20% lighter than 4S. It packs a phenomenal 326 pixel and packs 1136x640 resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio. It has retina display and pixel density of 326.
Under the hood, the Apple iPhone runs on a quad-core Cortex A6 processor, which makes the device twice as fast as its predecessor. In fact, in another first for iPhone, the iPhone 5 uses a common chip for voice as well as data, as well as a single radio chip.
Other features of the camera include dynamic low light mode, sapphire crystal and precision lens alignment, all of which is enough for iPhone 5 to be taken reasonably seriously for a prosumer camera tag. The front camera in the iPhone 5 for FaceTime will now support HD videos at 720p. It has an aluminium rear sensor and features three microphones - one each at the bottom, top and rear.
From economic times.
iPhone 5 Fast Facts: Features, Price & Availability ::
Apple unleashed a pile of announcements this morning at its presser at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. But if you’re looking for a fast breakdown of the iPhone bits, here’s what went down today:
The iPhone 5 in a nutshell
New size: At 7.6mm in depth and 112 grams, the new handset will be 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than the predecessor.
Bigger screen: A taller (but not wider) 4-inch Retina Display at 1136 x 640-pixel resolution, which allows for additional row of app icons on the homescreen.
4G/LTE: Across all the carriers — Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. We don’t yet know what kind of pricing or surcharges may be involved however. Also on board: Support for HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA networks. Also dual-channel WiFi, with support for 802.11a/b/g/n routers and 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency spectrums.
A6 processor: Apple reports it is twice as fast as the previous A5 (which incidentally is being put into the newest iPod touch).
Camera: On the rear camera, there’s the same number of megapixels as the iPhone 4S — 8MP — but it now comes with panorama mode, faster photo capture, sapphire crystal lens, backside illumination, hybrid IR filter, a five-element lens, f/2.4 aperture, spatial noise reduction and a dynamic low-light mode. Notably, the new phone will allow for simultaneous image and video capture, just like many Android devices do.
iOS 6 (of course), plus Siri support for launching apps
FaceTime over cellular networks
New dock connector: Enter “Lightning,” Apple’s newest connection standard that’s 80 percent smaller than the previous 30-pin version. (The company will also be offering adaptors so the new device will still work with old accessories.)
Colors: White with an aluminum backing, and a black version with an anodized rear panel.
Better battery life: 8 hours of talk time (3G), 8 hours of web browsing over 4G/LTE, 10 hours of video, 40 hours of music playback and 225 hours of playtime.
Dates: Pre-orders start this Friday, 9/14, and devices will ship on September 21 in the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. More countries will join in the availability list on the 28th, with a total of 100 countries getting it by the end of the year.
What was NOT announced: Near Field Communication.
They are crazy.
Fiat Punto costs 7.5 L.
What 7.5 L can get you? 5 Tata Nanos!!!
Only Apple can steal from you and make you feel really good about it.
They shot their own foor by saying its the world's thinnest smartphone...and blogs are pouncing all over them now..did not expect such a bland ignorance from apple..
Iphone 5 is 7.6 mm...
Droid RAZR from Moto is 7.1mm
There is ZTE,Huawei & Oppo5 with around 6.5mm...
Many are totally disappointed ..nothing ground breaking..
NFC was left out..which is a big miss in current age...
But still iphone 5 will be a hit...even if quarter of current owners buy them
Best Thing what Apple provided that is iOS6, it's very good than iOS5. Also it will be provided to 4,4S,3GS, Ipad2, Ipad (new) & 4th gen Ipod.
Waiting to update iOS6 in my 4S.
So Guys feel happy, there is no need to go for Iphone5 ( if you have 4,4S) in india with a whooping INR50000. It could have been better if Apple provide the Phone as below price rate in India:- ( Comparison with US market price diff for each model-100USD hike for next model). More than this it's not worthy to buy in India.
iPhone5:- 16GB-35000; 32GB:-40000; 64GB:-45000
iPhone4s:- 16GB:- 25000; 32GB:-30000, 64GB:-35000.
Ask your friend in USA to buy unlock iPhone5 and send to you if you really need iPhone5.
