After the presentation of this in this afternoon’s keynote, we already know all the details of the new iPhone 5S. A terminal that will not leave anyone indifferent and that comes loaded with great news to return to the top of the mobile phone market. The great incorporations in this terminal are the fingerprint reader of the home button, the camera and its double led flash and its processor the Apple A7.
During today’s keynote Apple has presented its new mobile phone, the much talked about iPhone 5s , a phone that brings a lot of new features and with which Apple expects to return to the top of the market of smartphones in which lately it seems that airs are blowing a little more favorable to Samsung and Android phones in general. Below we tell you the main news of this new terminal.
The iPhone 5s will be sold in three models, slate, gold and an aluminium-like grey . Unlike the iPhone 5c, this terminal will have a much more elegant finish, although it will allow users to choose between three finishes of the phone, something unheard of until now, as we could only choose between black and white iPhone.
The screen has not changed its shape or size , the 4-inch Retina screen is maintained, as well as the shape of the terminal, all this has not changed if we compare it with the previous iPhone 5.
The iPhone will be sold for 699 euros for the 16GB model, 799 euros for the 32GB model and 899 euros for the 64GB model . We will be able to reserve our terminal from the 13th of September in the United States, although to see it in Spain we will have to wait until December of this year.
Without a doubt this has been the most talked about part of the whole phone and that is that the Touch ID sensor incorporated in the Home button makes this not a simple button as in most terminals, but it takes a lot of prominence when using the phone.
Simply by resting your finger on the Touch ID sensor, it will read your finger and unlock your iPhone or access your iTunes account without the need to enter a username and password. The sensor is capable of reading even the deepest layers of the skin, making it highly reliable. The sensor is made of sapphire and cannot be scratched. It also reads the fingerprint in 360º.
As we already told you, this sensor will allow us to do many things with the phone such as unlocking the terminal by simply pressing the button or make payments and transfers safely with the help of our finger . This sensor also incorporates NFC technology so that some applications could also take advantage of this for transferring files between devices.
The heart of the beast is the Apple A7, which finally runs at 64 bits and is 20% more efficient than its predecessor , the Apple A6. This processor is based on the ARMv8 architecture and is 40% faster than its little brother, which will allow us to run iOS 7 much more smoothly on our smartphone .
It is also worth noting the existence of a chip specially dedicated to motion recognition , the M7 motion coprocessor, which will collect data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass to remove workload from the A7 processor and will be used by sports applications, fitness … Something that could be a replacement for Nike + bracelets and devices and would be integrated into the bowels of the phone natively.
The battery on this phone has been improved from its younger brother, the iPhone 5. This battery has more capacity than in its predecessor, we will be able to use our phone for 8 hours in 3G navigation, which is the most common in everyday life with our phone.
The iPhone 5s will have 250 hours of battery life in standby . This time, Apple has put the batteries in this aspect and we will see the phone’s autonomy improved to a great extent, something that we will be very grateful for in our day-to-day life, in which we will not have to be on the lookout for charging it every two or three days.
This is a 8 megapixel camera which, thanks to the incorporation of the rumoured double LED flash, has significantly improved the quality of photographs taken in low light locations. In addition, with the two flashes, the colour of the photograph will be regulated by combining them.
The video camera has also been improved on this occasion, since it will be able to capture video at 120 fps and 720p , which will allow us to create recordings at slow motion in HD , something that many cameras today do not allow.
The opening diaphragm of the iPhone 5s is 2.2 . Compared to the iPhone 5 the difference is remarkable as the latter was 2.4.
On the other hand, the camera incorporates a capture mode in which 10 shots will be shot and the phone will choose the best of them thanks to a software for recognition of the best shot .
We are facing a great evolution of the iPhone 5 and more if we think it is an iPhone 5s and not an iPhone 6. This time Apple has incorporated many more new features than we are used to in S phones and it seems that this is due to the great efforts and good work being done by competitors.
The smartphone market is more interesting than ever and Apple has just made a splash on the table with the inclusion of a more than interesting Touch ID sensor in the Home button of the new iPhone as well as the double LED flash in the camera that will prevent the Finns from laughing at the iPhone camera in upcoming Nokia Lumia ads.
