As expected, today Apple officially announced the iPhone 5 on the event in San Francisco. There are many new features of iPhone 5. One of the most noticeable new features is its display, which measures 4 inches in size (up from the 3.5-inch display of previous models), just as the prediction from ETrade Supply, an online phone replacement parts store. The iPhone 5’s display also features a touch sensor built directly into it. When it comes to the body of the device, the iPhone 5 measures 7.6mm thick and weighs in at 122 grams, which is thinner and lighter than iPhone 4S. Buried inside the iPhone 5’s body is Apple’s new A6 processor. The new chip said to be twice as fast as Apple’s A5 processor and offers double the graphics performance. It’s also worth noting that the iPhone 5 uses nano-SIM cards, which are smaller than the micro-SIM card used by the iPhone 4S. Its battery has longer stand-by time with 225 hours. Besides, the new features include 8-pin connector port, supporting 4G LTE, new design EarPods, etc.
However, it seems that iPhone 5 is just improved from the former one, which didn’t surprise us too much. Perhaps it’s because that we had too much expectation of it before.
