Apple iPhone 4 has been released few hours ago by Steve Jobs at WWDC 2010. iPhone 4 comes with many new and better features than previous iPhone 3GS. Read on for iPhone 4 features, price and availability.

Features of Apple iPhone 4

Apparently, the leaked iPhone in April is the final version of Apple iPhone 4. So, not surprised about the phone design, though still looks great.

iPhone 4 is 24% thinner than the iPhone 3GS and is made from stainless steel and glass. The stainless steel band is also part of the antenna system (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, UMTS, GSM) of the phone. iPhone 4 has secondary mic for noise cancellation.

The front and back glass cover of iPhone 4 is chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic, plus ultra-durable and more scratch resistant (read: Bye-bye, iPhone cases).

iPhone 4 has two builtis-in cameras: 5 megapixel back-camera with LED flash and backside illumination sensor; a front camera for video calling. The back-camera is also capable of taking HD videos (720p) up to 30fps with audio.

With the new technology called Retina Display, iPhone 4 screen is 960×640 pixel with 326 pixels per inch, the highest resolution phone screen ever. Graphic and text would be super sharp.

Like Apple iPad, iPhone 4 is powered by A4 chip handle complex jobs, such as multitasking, editing movie on iPhone using iMovie for iPhone and, at the same time, maximizing battery life. The iPhone 4 has up to 40% longer battery life than iPhone 3GS.

iPhone 4 is the first phone with built-in 3-axis gyroscope for more motion gestures and greater precision for better gaming experience.

Confirmed. Gizmodo’s iPhone 4G is real. No matter it is the final next iPhone or a prototype, it is genuine and Apple want it back.

Forget about how Gizmodo settle the case with Apple. The question now is “Will you buy the Apple iPhone 4G?”

Based on the prototype (I believe), you might get a iPhone 4G with: new design, front-facing camera, better back-camera with flash, better display, noise cancellation, and micro-SIM slot.

Buy iPhone 4G?

Are the new features enough to convince you to swipe your credit card?

Not for me, an existing iPhone 3GS user. I am happy with current iPhone 3GS. Though the new features make iPhone a better smartphone.

If I don’t own an iPhone now, I will get the iPhone 4G (provided that my local telco will support mico-SIM card).
