the new apple iPhone 5s – features a fingerprint identity sensor


along with the new iPhone 5c, today apple also unveiled their most technical advanced iphone to date, the iPhone 5s. the most significant new feature in the iphone series is the addition of a fingerprint identity sensor and 64-bit A7 processor. it also boasts the first ever 64-bit a7 processor in a smartphone – A7 supports OpenGL ES version 3.0 to deliver the kind of detailed graphics and complex visual effects once possible only on mac computers, PCs, and gaming consoles. a fingerprint sensor built into the home button to unlocks phone and verifies iTunes or Appstore purchases. apple reassures customers that non of the fingerprint info ever leaves the phone’s memory – it’s not stored on apple servers or available to third parties. the phone comes in space gray, gold, silver and will be available in the USA other selected markets from september 20 at a cost of 16GB $199, 32GB $299 and 64GB $399.




M7 motion coprocessor – the new M7 coprocessor is like a sidekick to the A7 chip. it’s designed specifically to measure motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass — a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip. but M7 is much more efficient at it.







the back camera has 8MP with, photo burst feature (takes several photos of an action sequence) HD video and slow motion video (video capture at 120 frames per second). a white LED and an amber LED work with intelligent software algorithms to adjust the flash intensity and color temperature, using over 1000 unique combinations to light your subject perfectly. the front camera has 1.2MP with 720p HD video recording.

  • Change the front button with fingerprint sapphire, add a new colour and voilá! Same iphone but twice the price, frankly, I dont see how consumers dont get it, they do this so you buy it, then a new product comes, slightly better, 6 months later, so you can re-buy it… Thats how apple is making tons of money.
    Thats why I stopped in the iphone 4, until they come with something trully innovative, design and UI wise, i´m not buying anything else…
