The much-awaited update of Apple’s iconic phone is here. We walk you through some of its new features.
After a period of speculations, leaks and conspiracies, Apple has finally unveiled the new iPhone 4. Among the new features is a front facing camera that enables a video calling application called FaceTime.
A new high resolution display called Retina Display increases the overall pixel count by four times, allowing for an extremely sharp display screen.
The new phone is 25% thinner and sports the A4 processor that also runs the iPad. The camera has been enhanced to 5 megapixels and has a backside illuminated sensor which can now record HD video.
It has a battery life of up to 7 hours on 3G talk time and up to 6 hours on 3G browsing, again much more than its predecessor. The iOS 4 software will also allow for high resolution text and buttons on applications.
iPhone 4 will retail at $199 for the 16GB model in white and black colors and will hit the stores on June 24th in US, France, Germany, UK and Japan.
