iPhone 4 will be available on June 24, what’s new with it anyway?

Steve Jobs has unveiled the new iPhone 4 (not 4G mind you)at the WWDC 2010 and it got a lot of people, Apple fans mostly, excited. So what’s new with the iPhone 4 anyway that would warrant iPhone 3G users to upgrade?

Here are the improvements:

  • It is 24% thinner than the 3G at only 9.3mm with a flat backside like the iPad
  • High resolution display at 960 x 460 with a 326ppi. Apple calls it “œRetina Display” maybe because your eye can’t really process that pixel count.
  • It runs on a 1GHz A4 processor similar to what the iPad has
  • Larger chassis means larger battery. It can now go up to 7 hours of talk time.
  • Improved camera with LED flash. 5mp against 3mp of the 3G and it can do 720p HD recording at 30fps.
  • Front-facing camera
  • It now supports WiFi N and Quad Band HSDPA
  • It comes with iOS 4 already

It’s a pretty big improvement from the iPhone 3G I might say. The bump in resolution makes it much better as a portable HD video playing device.

The iPhone 4 will be available in the US, Germany, France, UK and Japan on June 24. AT&T pricing is at $199 for the 16GB and $299 for the 32GB and both comes with a 24-month contract. It comes in black and white colors by the way.

Heard from a Globe insider that they expect the iPhone 4 to arrive here in the Philippines this September.
