iPhone 5 Announced, Price, Pre-Order & Release Date Details
iPhone 5 has been revealed with a new, wider screen, updated A6 chipset and other improvements across the board.
iPhone 5 will follow the traditional iPhone pricing model – pre-orders start in two days, on Friday 14 September, and the device will ship to customers in Europe and North America from Friday 21 September.
Apple’s reveal event claims that the A6 features a CPU and GPU that are each twice as quick as that featured in the A5 architecture of the iPhone 4S.
Apple demonstrated the power of the iPhone 5, which has an almost 16:9 ascpect ratio, with Real Racing 3 courtesy of EA.
The visuals, below (courtesy of Engadget) show off some beautifully rendered Porsches, while the phone is powerful enough to offer players a rearview mirror for the first time in the series.
Real Racing 3 will also offer asynchronous multiplayer – but there was no mention of realtime multiplayer across the 4G connection.
