Apple has announced the brand new iPhone 5 at this morning's iPhone 5 event, and it's a significant upgrade over the current iPhone 4S smartphone. The new iPhone features a 4-inch 1136 x 640 display, and is the first phone from Apple to feature 4G LTE. In the US, LTE will be supported by AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint.
The new iPhone measures in at 7.6mm thin and weighs 112 grams, making it the thinnest and lightest iPhone that Apple has produced to date, noting that it's made entirely of glass and aluminum. Powering it all is the new Apple A6 processor, which the company says will double the performance when compared to the iPhone 4S, while also providing double the graphics power.
