SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA (BNO NEWS) – Apple presented the new iPhone 4 on Monday,

The iPhone 4 features FaceTime, which allows video calling, and Apple’s new Retina display, but maintains its 3.5 display screen - which can show around four times as many pixels than the iPhone 3GS, resulting in sharper text, image, and video.

“iPhone 4 is the biggest leap since the original iPhone,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “FaceTime video calling sets a new standard for mobile communication, and our new Retina display is the highest resolution display ever in a phone, with text looking like it does on a fine printed page. We have been dreaming about both of these breakthroughs for decades.”

In addition, iPhone 4 features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD video recording, Apple’s A4 processor, a 3-axis gyro and a stronger battery that holds up to seven hours of talk time on 3G networks, up to 10 hours of web browsing on Wi-Fi and up to six hours on 3G, and up to 10 hours of video playback and up to 40 hours of audio playback

The iPhone 4 is featured in a glass and stainless steel design that is the thinnest smartphone in the world, measuring only 9.3 mm wide.

iPhone 4 comes with iOS 4, which includes over 100 new features and 1500 new APIs for developers. iOS 4 features Multitasking, Folders, enhanced Mail, deeper Enterprise support and Apple’s new iAd mobile advertising platform. iPhone 4 will be available in the US, UK, France, Germany and Japan on June 24.
