iPhone X, the rumored Apple flagship iPhone for Apple’s 10th year anniversary has been announced in the recent Apple Special Event held on September 12, 2017 in Cupertino, California.
Called as the “iPhone of the future”, it looks very different from the previous iPhone models. It has an edge-to-edge display glass on front and back with a 5.8‑inch Super Retina display. This iPhone also has an OLED screen which supports HDR (both Dolby Vision and HDR10). As a result, it produces accurate, stunning colors, true blacks, high brightness, and a 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio. It's available in silver and space gray finish.
This iPhone model no longer has a Home button. A simple swipe from the bottom of the screen to the top quickly takes you to the Home menu. Aside from the swiping gesture function, the iPhone X uses Face ID which replaced the Touch ID. Just place the iPhone in front of your face to unlock it. What’s good about this is that the face data is stored in the device and not on the web or cloud. This new security feature is made possible by iOS 11 and A11 Bionic chip that has a new neural engine and computer vision array. This all‑new CPU is up to 70 percent faster than A10 Fusion.
Similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone X has dual cameras at the back but with a larger and faster 12MP sensor. It has optical image stabilization and fast lenses. Its wide-angle and telephoto cameras enable optical zoom. It can also perform digital zoom of up to 10x for photos and 6x for videos.
Along with a nice camera comes a new added feature which is the Portrait mode wherein you can adjust the lighting effect on photos even before taking it.
Apple also introduced Animoji, which is animated emojis. The TrueDepth camera capture your facial expression and mirror it with an emoji.
Since Augmented Reality has become popular, Apple made sure to make this iPhone compatible with AR so you can experience AR games and apps.
Available storage capacities are 64GB and 256GB.
Same as the iPhone 7, this phone is also water and dust resistant but this model lasts up to 2 hours more. It also supports the Bluetooth 5 and LTE Advanced. And finally, this iPhone supports Qi wireless charging so no more charging cables.
iPhone X will be available for pre-orders on October 27, 2017 and will start shipping on November 3, 2017.
