iPhone 4 features

Today at , Apple finally announced the . Obviously, the leaks have been coming hot and heavy over the past month, but hey, now that it’s official, let’s take a look at the rundown on all the specs of what is obviously the most feature-packed iPhone to date:

  • Glass on front and back, with a stainless steel bezel
  • The steel bezel doubles as the antenna system for HSDPA/UMTS/HSUPA/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.1, and 802.11b/g/n
  • It’s got a 960x640 LED-backlit display that is rated at 326ppi, which Apple refers to as a Retina Display. It boasts IPS technology and an 800:1 contrast ratio.
  • On the inside, the iPhone 4 is powered by the Apple A4 chip.
  • 5-megapixel camera that also records HD 720p video at 30 frames per second
  • LED flash
  • A second, VGA-quality front camera which can be used for self-portraits and video at 30 frames per second.
  • FaceTime video chat. Connect with other iPhone 4 users and use the front camera to chat using video.
  • Three-axis gyroscope
  • Noise cancellation built-in

This is obviously the most ambitious iPhone upgrade that Apple has ever done, and it looks awesome. Battery life has also been improved, now offering 7 hours of 3G talk time (14 hours on EDGE.) The iPhone 4 is also just 0.37-inches thin, 25% thinner than the iPhone 3GS.

The iPhone 4 will be available in either white or black, starting at $199 for the 16GB model, or $299 for the 32GB model, with two-year contract. AT&T has bumped up upgrade eligibility of a bunch of customers, so if you were eligible for an upgrade anytime in the next six months, you should be good to go if you wanna grab a new iPhone 4! Oh, and the iPhone 3GS has been dropped down to $99 and will only be available in 8GB. You’ll be able to pre-order your iPhone 4 starting on June 15, and the device will be available in the USA, France, Germany, UK, and Japan at launch, with 18 more countries to follow in July.
