Used phones could be traded for the iPhone 4

Those with a used phone who want to upgrade to a newer model now have the chance to own one of the most powerful and sleek smartphones on the market.

Mobile giant Apple is releasing its iPhone 4 in the UK on June 24th and, at 9.3mm thick, the device is the thinnest smartphone ever, boasting a 960-by-640-pixel touchscreen display and a sophisticated glass and steel design, the firm claims.

Announcing the launch in the US, Apple chief executive Steve Jobs, said: "iPhone 4 is the biggest leap since the original iPhone. Our new retina display is the highest resolution display ever in a phone, with text looking like it does on a fine printed page."

The high-definition screen, along with Wi-Fi connectivity, has also enabled the new FaceTime app, which offers users a high-quality video calling capability.

Apple has also said the device features a more powerful processor that allows those with the iPhone 4 to multitask and easily switch between apps.
