As part of the press conference, Apple announced the iPhone 6 Plus smartphone, which has long been rumored. All the details about the new flagship and the first phablet of the Cupertinians are below.
The device is notable for its 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. It has 185% more pixels than the 4-inch iPhone 5s! The case of the iPhone 6 Plus is made of glass and anodized aluminum (the Apple logo is made of "stainless steel"), the screen is covered with the so-called. "Ion-strengthened glass". For ergonomics, the Power button is now on the side rather than on the top. The thickness of the novelty is only 7.1 mm (for comparison, the iPhone 5s has 7.6 mm).
The new iPhone is powered by the 20nm Apple A8 processor. The processor performance has increased by 25% of the graphics - one and a half times, it works more stable and heats up less. Apple also introduced a new version of the M8 co-processor, which is responsible for the high-quality operation of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and built-in sensors. The M8 “understands” the differences”between running and cycling, and can accurately calculate distance and altitude difference.
The significant difference between the iPhone 6 Plus and the “plain” iPhone 6 is the redesigned user interface. Apple made its “iPad mini miniature” out of its phablet - there is a landscape orientation for both the home screen and the application interface. The keyboard has two new keys for copying and pasting text.
There was also a new gesture called "Reachability" - the user touches the Home button twice, and the display "slides" down, so that you can easily get to the top icons.
iPhone 6 Plus has become the most powerful smartphone in Apple in terms of battery life. In audio playback mode, the novelty works up to 80 hours (for comparison, iPhone 5s - no more than 50, iPhone 6 - 60 hours). In video playback mode, the smartphone will work up to 14 hours. The battery lasts up to 12 hours for surfing the Internet (both via LTE and 3G). You can talk on iPhone 6 Plus on 3G networks for up to 24 hours (compare to 10 hours for iPhone 5s). In standby mode, Plus will last up to 16 days.
iPhone 6 Plus operates on LTE networks (more than 20 frequencies), theoretically the maximum achievable speed is up to 150 Mbps. The technology of high quality voice over LTE (VoLTE), which is not widely used yet, is also supported. The Wi-Fi connection on the smartphone is three times faster than before, and calls over Wi-Fi are supported in the US and UK.
The iPhone 6 Plus has an 8-megapixel camera with f / 2.2 and True Tone flash. The smartphone is equipped with a new generation iSight sensor. With it, autofocus works faster (as well as detection of smiles), and "noise" in pictures is much more effective. Now it is possible to scale panoramas up to 43 megapixels.
An important innovation - optical image stabilization appeared in the iPhone 6 Plus (in the iPhone 6 - only digital). Now, even with trembling hands, the picture will turn out to be successful. "Feature" will definitely be appreciated!
Vice president of Apple Phil Schiller also said that the camera iPhone 6 Plus shoots video in 1080p at 30 frames per second or 60. Optionally, you can record slo-mo at 120 or 240 fps.
The colors remained the same - champagne spray, silver and dark gray.
Apple has priced the most affordable version of the iPhone 6 Plus - with 64GB of internal storage - at $ 299 with contract. In Russia, prices for the iPhone 6 Plus will range from 36,990 rubles to 46,990 rubles (version with 128 GB of internal memory). Sales of the smartphone in the US will begin on September 19, pre-order can be left in three days - September 12.
