Not the “New iPhone,” “iPhone 4SE,” “Next Generation iPhone,” or even just iPhone. Apple executives today unveiled the latest model of the iconic smartphone, which will officially be called the iPhone 5.

Boy Genius Report writes that many of the most persistent rumors surrounding the new model were accurate:

 It’s 18% thinner than the iPhone 4/4S at 7.6mm thin, and Apple is claiming it is the world’s thinnest smartphone. It is also 20% lighter than the previous model, and is made out of all aluminum and glass. Since the display is taller with a 1136 x 640 resolution, there’s an extra row of icons and the pixels per inch are 326.

The phone also features a new, smaller “Lightning” docking system and a speedy A6 processor. It will be available starting at $199 on September 21st; pre-orders begin this Friday, September 14.

The event in California also unveiled updates to iOS 6.

What do you think about the new device and features?
