Apple Unveils iPhone 4 Complete with FaceTime Video Chat
Steve Jobs in his keynote address at the World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC10) in San Francisco unveiled the new iPhone 4 today. Of course, if you’re an iPhone fan you’ll know that much of this was leaked a few weeks back, which Steve eluded to in his keynote with “stop me if you’ve seen this before.” The new iPhone 4 sports a full redesign and includes many enhancements including a 5mp camera, a front facing camera, new A4 processor and more.
The complete feature set of the new iPhone is impressive. Aside from it’s complete new redesigned form factor (which is made of a glass front and back) the new iPhone 4 has and all new display (probably the biggest improvement) that supports 960×640 resolution at a whopping 326 pixels per inch. The new display is said to be awesome (which I totally believe given it’s pixel density).
Other new additions include:
- 960×640 326ppi 800:1 Contrast Ratio IPS screen
- 3mm thinner (9.3 vs 12.3 on iPhone 3GS)
- Proprietary Apple A4 processor (System-on-a-Chip) – Same chip that the iPad uses
- Bigger battery, more juice for 7 hours of 3G talk time and 10 hours of video
- Cleaner construction free of arsenic and other contaminants
- Two microphones to support noise cancellation
- A new hardware gyroscope specifically aimed at game developers to improve phone orientation and control
- 5mp camera with backside illuminated sensor complete with LED flash that supports HD video (720HD @ 30fps)
- Forward facing camera to support FaceTime (Apple’s branded iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 video chat) although this is WiFi only
The list of improvements in the new iPhone 4 are impressive. While these are the only ones that we are highlighting rest assured that there are many, many more.
