To vastly oversimplify, it's Apple's high-end internals stuffed into an iPhone 5 case, albeit a case that now supports fingerprint authentication via Touch ID.

How much will it cost? The 64 GB model will set you back a very reasonable $499 USD outright, or a somewhat less reasonable $709 CAD. Apple doesn't have much faith in the Canadian dollar, it seems.
