It appears what we have been calling up until now is just an unofficial name. The 4th generation of iPhone is not called as iPhone 4G, iPhone 4 is the official name unveiled by Steve Jobs in WDC yesterday.
This new iPhone 4 smartphone from Apple is featuring a stronger stainless steel body paired with a sturdy black glass. Unlike its predecessor, iPhone 4 looks quite blunt and solid. It doesn’t has a capsule like design anymore. Measure in just 4.5 x 2.31 x 0.37 inch, this 137 grams iPhone 4 carry a 3.5-inch multitouch screen that support larger resolution at 960 x 640 at 326 ppi (Apple called it Retina Display).
Apparently, the Retina display is capable of displaying up to 4 times better than its predecessors iPhone 3GS. The retina display can provide an impressive sharpest, vibrant, highest resolution phone screen ever, with 800:1 contrast ratio, fingerprint resistant oleophobic coating on front and back side.
Even better, iPhone 4 has a built-in 5-MP camera complete with the LED flash at the back side, while you can also do video chatting (with FaceTime) with your friend using this new iPhone 4 thanks to the front facing camera. The camera itself has the capability to record video at 30 fps, and it can also do video geotagging easily using the built-in apps.
iPhone 4 is powered by a new Apple processor called A4. This processor could provide an immersive power and graphic performance and the processor was first used in Apple iPad tablet. So you can expect the iPhone 4 to perform as great and your iPad.
iPhone 4 provides up to 10 hours of web browsing on WiFi, or about 6 hours via 3G network. You can also use it as your PMP to watch movie (about 10 hours) and playing your favorite songs and music (for 40 hours per charge).
Apple iPhone 4 also support three axis gyro, accelerometer, proximity sensor, display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously and ambientlight sensor.
