And so, after countless tech tsismis, it can now be said: The iPhone 6 is now official!

But, just like last year, not one but two new handsets were unveiled. In Apple's big event, which happened earlier this morning (around 1 a.m. Manila time), the iPhone 6 was accompanied by its bigger bro, the iPhone 6 Plus. "Plus" for plus size? Puwede!

But enough talk, meet below the two new participants of the heated smartphone wars!

The spiritual successor to the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6 is larger than any of its predecessors (hey, we got that one right!). With a 4.7-inch display size, it offers squint-free viewing at an impressive resolution of 1334x750, which Apple dubs Retina HD. Retina what? Basically, that's a resolution higher than 720p HD that makes individual pixels look almost invisible to the naked eye.

On the inside, the iPhone 6 also had a few major improvements. For starters, it comes with a new A8 processor that reportedly offers a 25-percent improvement in CPU performance and as much as a 50-percent boost in graphics processing power over the older A7 chip found on the iPhone 5S. With that, expect the iPhone 6 to be faster both in running mobile software and rendering visuals for your apps, games, and whatnot.

Another biggie: Apple also decided to include a 128GB iPhone 6 into the mix, offering twice the capacity of the max storage option for the iPhone 5S (64GB). iOS 8 is also packaged with the device (check out the new features of the operating system here), which makes it even more impressive. Sweet!

And because thin is currently "in" in the world of gizmos, Apple scraped off a few millimeters off the iPhone 6 to make it significantly slimmer than its predecessor (7.6mm vs. 6.9mm). The downside: It's a tad heavier at 129g. That shouldn't be a problem though; that's still pretty light.

So there, the all-new, mainit-init pa iPhone 6. Looks to be another impressive device, no? Now let's get to know its bigger sibling, the iPhone 6 Plus. Deets on the next page, geeks!
