Apple revealed new iPhone 6 on Tuesday at an event near its headquarters in Cupertino, California, alongside another model, the larger iPhone 6 Plus which is a Phablet!
So we have iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display and iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5-inch display.
New iPhone 6 features is a 4.7-inch display, larger than any previous iPhone model. The screen has a resolution of 1,134 x 750, for a pixel density of 289 ppi (pixels per inch). For sure is not the best resolution that we so, as today we have many smartphones with a higher resolution, I personally don’t think this is the Retina Display, as usually this is just promoting the products.
New iPhone 6, and new iPhone 6 Plus (Phablet) have a new design with interesting curved glass sides. the glass is “ion strengthened”. Apple marketing head Phil Schiller said at the unveiling. The design is 6.9 millimeters thin, which compares to 7.6mm for the previous generation, the iPhone 5S. Also new feature called “reachability” will be available to aid with one-handed operation. When you double-touch the home button, the active part of the display slides downward about halfway, seems to be cool.
iPhone 6 uses the Apple A8 processor. The A8 is the successor the A7, which introduced 64-bit processing to iOS. The A8 is also 64-bit, but it’s faster and more efficient, built with 20-nanometer tech. Apple says the chip is up to 50 times faster than the one in the original iPhone Apple says the chip is up to 50 times faster than the one in the original iPhone, with graphics up to 84x faster.
iPhone 6 will support 200 LTE networks worldwide with speeds up to 150 megabits per second, also LTE (VoLTE). Support of 802.11ac Wi-Fi networks will be new feature which is up to 3x speeds.
Apple says iPhone’s camera gets an upgrade, 8-megapixel sensor, focusing is almost twice as fast, Apple says, thanks to “Focus Pixels,” which takes advantage of phase-detection autofocus.
iPhone 6 has digital image stabilization, though it lacks just one feature that’s on the iPhone 6 Plus: optical image stabilization. Camera can capture 1080p footage at 60 frames per second, with continuous autofocus while recording. Slow-motion mode with 240 fps.
