Today, Apple has finally taken the wraps off of their newest gadget: the iPhone 5. The new handset will have a larger Retina display (a 4 inch display, to be exact), with resolution of 1136×640 (326 PPI). Apple’s Marketing Senior Vice President Phillip Schiller said it took “a lot of incredible engineering,” and they’ve made the device even thinner than its predecessors while making the device in glass and aluminum chassis.

Apple also announced that the latest Apple iPhone will have 4G LTE support, and it has the new chip architecture dubbed “A6.” Apple claims the new chip design is 2x faster and has 2x the graphics performance compared to the A5 chip, and it will be more energy efficient. So, that means that the new iPhone battery life of the iPhone 5 could exceed the current iPhone 4S battery life.

The new iPhone 5 specs include:

  • 7.6mm (18 percent thinner)
  • Weights: 112 grams, making it 20 percent lighter.
  • Resolution Display: 1,136-by-640 (16:9 aspect ratio).
  • iPhone Display: Will have 44 percent more color saturation
  • 4GLTE and HSPA+, DC-HSDPA support
  • iPhone’s Carriers: Sprint, AT&T and Verizon will support LTE.
  • Wi-Fi (2.4ghz and 5ghz on 802.11n)
  • A6 chip (compared to the A5— it is two times faster but 22 percent smaller)
  • iPhone’s Camera: 8 megapixels with backside illumination, a hybrid IR filter and a five-element lens. f/2.4 aperture.
