Apple kicked off its event today by removing the wraps off the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The two have joined the phablet category now.

The new iPhones see curved edges, and the design is beautiful. It is also thinner than before, with the iPhone 6 measuring 6.9mm while the Plus at 7.1mm.

They employ Apple's latest Retina HD display. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7" display while the Plus sports a 5.5" display.

The new phones are powered by Apple's A8 chip, offering up to 25% faster processing power and 50% faster graphics. It is basically 50 times faster than the original iPhone.

There's faster LTE too, and its Apple iSight 8MP camera features 1.5µ pixels, ƒ/2.2 aperture, and an all-new sensor along with DSLR-inspired Focus Pixels and software improvements like faster autofocus, next-generation local tone mapping, and advanced noise reduction


Available in gold, silver, and space grey with 16, 64, and 128GB of storage, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus start at $199 and $299 USD and are due out September 19.
