After waiting a long time and after so many rumors, Apple has finally officially unveiled the new crown jewel of the iPhone 5. Although technically it is whether the sixth revision of the device, the new Apple smartphone is called as expected, the iPhone 5. Yes, there is some interesting news on this device, but a question arises. Is it enough to counteract and especially with android Samsung Galaxy S3?
Apple makes me think more and more a Microsoft or RIM. Their new devices are interesting, but innovations are rare. In addition to the device screen is slightly larger, a new connector and some technical improvements to the side of the camera, the upgrade is slight.
iPhone 5 Design & Display
The new iPhone comes with new design made of glass and aluminum unibody structure. Now the thickness is 7.6mm, 18% thinner than the iPhone 4S , also have made it lighter, weighing 112 grams, making it 20% lighter than its predecessor .
This update has added a Retina display of 4 inches with a resolution of 1136×640 pixels and a density of 326 pixels per inch. This enhancement adds a new line of desktop applications for a total of 5. To avoid compatibility problems with applications that do not include the new screen adaptation to be added two horizontal lines, adapted to the screen size of previous iPhones. The screen has a 44% saturation over its predecessor (uses the same technology as the new iPad).
The processor of the new iPhone 5 is a completely new model called A6, which according to Phil Schiller summarizes: Is twice as fast as the iPhone 4S A5 processor”
It was hoped that this new smartphone from Apple will incorporate the same processor included in the third generation iPad ie the A5X, however, the Cupertino have chosen a new CPU that looks really amazing, especially in the event show held in conjunction with EA Games, where a new game called Real Racing 3 demonstrated the potential of the GPU graphic incorporating the iPhone 5.
iPhone 5 Camera
The camera is still the same 8MP. This chamber of the iPhone 5 is named iSight, is 25% smaller than the iPhone 4S and more powerful and stunning, even when the same 8 MP maintains its predecessor , and is that not everything is to have more Megapixels but the advantage of technology. Your lens is 5 items with f/2.4 aperture. This is much better in low light, has a sapphire crystal to protect the lens and through A6 chip technology, their catches are much faster.
Interesting feature about the camera is, can take Panorama pictures. This feature lets you take panoramic pictures in a very simple, only moving the iPhone to be doing shots then the device will handle assemble them into one amazing panoramic picture up to 28MP.
From the point of view of the video can be recorded at 1080p HD and improved video stabilization and now you can take pictures while recording videos.
Now you can use over the cellular network , obviously it’s likely that other operators charge this service.
Headphones are fully renovated and now have that name. They are designed to fit as many ears and the sound quality. A color data is that the headphones come with a carrying case is very cool.
A new connector : Lightning
The connector is completely redesigned, allowed the old 30-pin connectors giant smallest one above is reversible, no matter how you connect, work anyway. This new connector, Lightning , allows connection of both sides and is 80% smaller than the previous one (8-pin).
