Here’s what Apple is serving up in the iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus:

A brand new design: The new design is rounder, larger, and easier to hold. The iPhone 6 lands in a 6.9mm thick shell, and 7.1 mm for the iPhone 6 Plus. Both devices are thinner and lighter than the iPhone 5.

Larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display: The iPhone 6 has a Retina HD display, about two times the resolution of the iPhone 5 display. At 1,334 x 750 resolution (or 326 pixels-per-inch) for the iPhone 6, and 1,920 x 1080 resolution for the iPhone 6 Plus, the new smartphones have more than 2 million and 3 million pixels, respectively.

64-bit A8 chip: The two new smartphones contain the next-generation A8 chip, which has 2 billion transistors, double that of the first-generation A7 chip.

M8 co-processor: This new co-processor works alongside the main chip to continuously measure motion data without draining battery life. The M8 co-processor is designed for fitness and activities, it was announced. It can now figure out elevation, such as with a flight of stairs. It also comes with a new sensor called the Barometer, which measures elevation from air pressure.

Improved 8-megapixel camera: The camera is improved from the iPhone 5s, with a few new additions, like a new and improved sensor. The True Tone flash changes color depending on surrounding lighting, and images should come with greater noise reduction technology. The auto-focus is twice as fast as before, executives said. Panoramic photos now go up to 43 megapixels in size. The iPhone 6 Plus, however, comes with optical image stabilization.

Near-field communications (NFC) for mobile payments: Apple’s latest smartphones will come with a mobile payment feature, made possible with a near-range wireless chip that will allow users to pay for low-priced products from their device.

Better battery: At least, proportionally. Apple’s Phil Schiller said the new devices will be as good as, if not better than, the iPhone 5s. Expect about 11 hours of video watching and Wi-Fi browsing, and about 14 hours of video and browsing on the iPhone 6 Plus.

Faster networking, LTE: Next-generation speeds are now up to 150 Mpbs, compared to 100 Mbps in previous models. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus also come with 802.11ac networking for faster home and office speeds.
