Straight from Apple's WWDC - the iPhone 4!

The iPhone 4

The iPhone 4

By now, the keynote's already over, and if you haven't yet slept the past night, then you'll probably know what's in this article and may want to skip to the pretty pictures. To our fresh readers, here's what you missed. The latest iPhone will be called the iPhone 4, will feature a higher pixel density and higher resolution screen that Apple calls the Retina Display (which seems like marketing talk to us), be slightly thinner than the iPhone 3GS, have a slightly longer battery life and will be using the Apple A4 processor that's found in the iPad. it will also be the first iPhone to have a camera on the front and rear.

The iPhone 4, sleek and pretty. Glass on the front and back, while surrounded in stainless steel at the sides.

The iPhone 4 will be available come 24th June for a few countries like the US, UK France, Germany, and Japan while countries like Singapore will be getting the phone by the end of July. It's good news for those who have been holding out for this version of the iPhone, so let's take a look at what are the other features of the new iPhone before we jump back over to the the rest of the stuff mentioned by Steve Jobs in WWDC.

The gyroscope is one of the newer features in the iPhone 4, and will allow you to play games as you move.

So now you have to worry about the iPhone flying out of your hands as you attempt to spin it in a circular motion while dancing up and down to get a perfect score... We jest, but this is going to shake things up (pun intended) for the newer games that will appear in the App Store.

Heck, it's about time. The iPhone's camera gets a megapixel bump to 5-megapixels and will feature LED flash, 5x digital zoom and HD video recording (720p) at long last. You can also edit the clips with a new iMovie app for US$4.99.

The improved battery life is also one of the touted new features, but compared to the iPhone 3GS, it's only slightly better, and we all know how long the iPhone 3GS can last in actual usage. We'll see when the actual unit arrives, so hopefully, it will be much, much better.
