Lasting two minutes and 25 seconds long, the mostly 3D-rendered video reveals some interesting details, some not known or seen previously.
The new iPhone is a unibody construction which is 9mm taller and 22 percent thinner than the iPhone 4S. The longer form factor encases a 4″ 16:9 widescreen Retina Display (640 x 1136 pixels at 326ppi), a 18 percent larger screen than previously.
While facts point to a non-LTE model, codenamed N42, the video shows the inclusion of LTE.
The video also details the inclusion of Apple’s next generation A6 processor, 1GB RAM and 32/64/128GB storage options. Strangely enough, there is no mention of the main camera, while a 720p front FaceTime camera is shown.
The all-new 9-pin Mini Dock connector as seen in leaked specs and images all over is 50 percent smaller and will support fast USB 3.0 transfer.
The new iPhone 5 will use an Apple-designed 4FF nano-SIM card, which is 40 percent smaller than micro-SIM card.
What’s interesting is a never-before-seen “Fingerprint scan to unlock” function, built into Home button – hybrid fingerprint matching with on-chip encryption.
Some iOS enhancements were also shown including Mission Control (two finger swipe gesture to reveal panel) and new UI for Calendar/Contacts.

The video is incredibly detailed and does have a very legit Apple feel to it, but some missing elements and over-dependence of 3D rendering makes it less convincing. Regardless, some of the added enhancements are interesting.
