iPhone 4 in Singapore – Are you getting it?

The iPhone 4 was announced last night with an obscene amount of features, major changes to the hardware, and of course as we all know, iPhone OS 4 which is now renamed iOS 4.

Here are the features covered during the keynote:

Feature 1: New hardware design

2 aluminosilicate glass on the front/back with a stainless steel band around it that also functions as an antenna. Dual microphones noise canceling for a clear voice.

Feature 2: New Retina display

IPS for great viewing angle. The 3.5″ multi-touch 960-by-640 backlit LCD display with 800:1 contrast ratio boasts a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, making it the highest-resolution phone screen ever.

Feature 3: A4 chip + more battery life

The A4 chip found in your iPad will be on your iPhone 4. This enables longer battery life, at 7 hours of talk time, 6 hours of internet use, 10 hours of video playback, 40 (1 2/3 days) hours of audio playback, 300 hours (12.5 days) on standby.

Feature 4: Three Axis Gryoscope

A new hardware, the Gryoscope, also found in your Wii controller, will provide developers with much better control over the roll, pitch, and yaw of your iPhone 4. This allows more possibilities of new types of games and applications on the iPhone 4.

Feature 5: 5 MP Camera + LED Flash + 5X digital zoom + Backside Illuminated sensor + 720p video + iMovie

Better pictures and video. Not that interesting, but at least it makes this new iPhone 4 better to produce content.

Feature 6: iOS 4

Multi-tasking. Enough said.

Feature 7: iBooks on iPhone

Those without iPads, you’re not left out.

Feature 8: iAds

More data usage on your Telco’s data network. Let’s hope it wouldn’t over-stress our existing infrastructure and make the experience bad.

Feature 9: FaceTime (video chat)

Long awaited, but only available on iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 using WiFi, not available for 3G.

In Singapore?

When? Near or together with the iPad launch in Singapore.

Where? Not confirmed, but *possibly* all telcos. Will keep you guys updated.

All telcos, including SingTel, M1, Starhub.

Note: Remember the iPhone 4 uses micro-sim.

So are you getting it?

  1. I am waiting for it to launch man! Haha, my contract ended 6 months ago, but I’m waiting for iPhone 4 to launch nia.. 🙂 so excited that it is finally coming. HD Video is definitely one of the killer features. FaceTime is wifi only, but I think after jailbreak, should be able to bypass it? Haha! :X I am hoping that video chat can be in skype too, rather than only in facetime.

  2. Great post, dude… battery life time is impresive..

  3. Camera – not that interesting!???
    decent pictures + night photography + HD video – very very interesting – that is the killer app for me: don’t need to plunk down for a new compact camera!

  4. @Iphonatic: That’s true. But it’s not interesting as in it is just updating the specs to something better, with iMovie. It’s not as revolutionary as a new “Retina Display”, or “Longer Battery Life”, or the others.

    @TobiasCai: I think it’s just a matter of time that skype will enable video chat. Also, trust the jailbreak hackers to bypass it. 🙂 I’m sure. Go get it! I’m trying to figure out how to get it myself. My contract isn’t up until next year.

    @Michael Sync: Thanks. I know, very impressive battery life. A lot better than current battery life.

  5. I’m already in the queue for it. Wahahahah…. :p

  6. wah.. DK, benefits of being in Company A ah?! How come u in queue liao?

  7. @DK: don’t friend you lah. Queue for me also leh. Help me cut queue. 😛

  8. #2 and #3 sound really good. I’d love to see how long the batt life is with the A4 processor. 🙂

  9. @Ivy: Yeah, I think it will definitely be good. Looks long enough for an almost full day heavy usage.
