Apple’s new iPhone 5 features upgraded front camera with FaceTime HD

Apple on Wednesday introduced the iPhone 5, adding FaceTime HD quality video to its front camera. For reference,the front camera on last year’s iPhone 4S offered just VGA.

The new front-facing camera offers 720pixel video and face detection. FaceTime will also now be available over a cellular connection.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 5’s rear camera also got an upgrade, though it didn’t get any additional megapixels. The 8-megapixel rear shooter does now have a dynamic lowlight mode, precision lens alignment and a sapphire crystal lens cover.

Other notable features to the iPhone 5 include the addition of 4G LTE connectivity, an A6 processor and a longer 4-inch in-cell screen.
