iPhone 5 launched; is thinner, lighter & lightening fast

Finally the day arrived for which every tech geek was longing for. Yes, the launch event just wrapped up. Don't start getting jealous,I wasn't invited to the event. :-P
I'm listing down the quick points jolted down by my inside sources:
The iPhone 5 is officially called "iPhone 5."
The Skeleton:
The full body is made up of glass and aluminum, and as always, the handset reflects pure elegance. iPhone 5 is 18% thinner and 20% lighter than it's prequel device. Lighter is better,I believe.
Display: Putting all the speculations about the display at rest, the screen size finally did make a jump; from the 3.5 in the oldies to the 4 inch screen in the current one. The half inch surge is achieved by an increase only in the height (to avoid handling with one hand problems). The old apps are supposed to be updated to benefit from the increased display.
The resolution is 1136x640 with 326 ppi and 16:9 aspect ratio. The color saturation of this one is a whopping 44% higher than in 4s, thus it is bound to give a better viewing experience.
The display has been made 30% thinner this time as Apple has integrated the touch screen sensor into the display.
Camera: It has a 25% smaller 8MP camera which comes with a f/24 aperture and backside illumination. The low light mode is supposed to enhance picture quality in dim lit conditions. 1080p HD video recording is supported by the camera while the front camera will shoot at 720p.
The back camera will be protected by a sapphire crystal lens cover.
Processor: Claimed to be twice as fast as the one in 4s. The new A6 processor is 22% smaller. Graphics processing is also said to be 2x 4s.
Sound: Instead of two, three microphones have been included for better sound quality. The speakers are about 20% smaller. The new earphones come with the touted noise cancellation technology which will enhance your music experience.
LTE compatible (4G connectivity).
New "lightening"connector chord is 80% smaller, is more durable and will support older cords via adapters.

Available for pre-orders from 14th September, units to be available from 21st September.
Availability in India:
No words about price or launch date in India, but given the low presence of Apple in India and also the previous launches, we know it's going to take some time before it hits the Indian Stores.
