This additional RAM will allow this model to run more applications simultaneously, one of the major features in iOS 4.0, the new version of Apple’s mobile operating system that’s going to debut on Monday.
Overview of the Apple iPhone 4
Apple’s fourth-generation smartphone is going to be a significant upgrade from the current one, starting with its 3.5-inch, 640 x 960 touchscreen, a much higher resolution than any previous iPhone has offered.
It’s going to have a new slimmer design and run iOS 4.0, the latest version of Apple’s operating system, on a 1 GHz Apple A4 processor.
The iPhone 4 is going to come in two configurations: a version with 16 GB of storage will cost $200 and one with 32 GB will go for $300. These prices are for new AT&T customers willing to sign up for a two-year contract, or current customers who qualify for a subsidy. Current customers who don’t qualify will have to pay $200 more.
The iPhone 4 will have a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with a flash, as well as support for recording 720p video at 30 frames per second. In addition, it’s going to include a small front-facing camera for video chatting with an app called FaceTime.
Not everything is being improved: Apple’s upcoming smartphone will have the same amount of storage capacity as the current one.
This smartphone will have 3G wireless networking, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver.
The Apple iPhone 4 is set to debut next Thursday.
