Next iPhone Details

Stainless steel all around and glass on the front and back.  It’s really thin at 23% thinner than the 3Gs and the “thinnest smartphone on the planet.”

Pretty much as expected like the prototype eventually bought and exposed by Gizmodo.

  • New design
  • Front facing camera
  • Microsim
  • Camera and LED flash on the back

As presented yesterday on Leo Laporte’s This Week In Tech podacast, there is a new screen called “Retina Display”

  • 326 pixels per inch (like a laser printer)
  • 800:1 contrast ratio
  • 3.5” IPS technology “for superb color and wide viewing angle”
  • 960x640 resolution
  • iPhone OS 4 will automatically scale apps to run on Retina Display

The new iPhone will be running the same A4 chip that is in the iPad.

  • Larger battery plus A4’s optimization leads to:
    • 5-7 hours talk time on 3G
    • 6 hours browsing on 3G
    • 10 hours browsing on Wi-Fi
    • 40 hours of music
    • 10 hours of video
