The last and final announcement from Apple is the iPhone X. It’s pronounced as ‘iPhone 10’, which could be to commemorate iPhone’s 10 year anniversary. Apple says the iPhone X lays path for the coming decade with the new all-screen design on the front. To achieve an all-screen, Apple killed the ubiquitous home button, which incidentally, also killed off the Touch ID. However, to circumvent this, Apple introduces Face ID that uses user’s face to unlock the phone. Apple claims their face unlock tech is better, more secure and accurate than the competition as it relies on TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera and flood illuminator.
The iPhone X is also the first iPhone to come with an OLED panel and boasts a large screen size of 5.8-inch and Super Retina display (2436×1125). The screen also supports HDR and can play any content that supports either Dolby Vision or HDR10.
The iOS 11 running phone is powered by Apple’s new A11 Bionic chip and has a redesigned dual 12-megapixel rear camera system with dual optical image stabilisation and Portrait Lighting support. Just like the iPhone 8 dup, the iPhone X is optimised for AR and even supports Animoji and wireless charging.
The iPhone X will go on sale from November 3 in India starting at a price of Rs. 89,000 for 64GB and Rs. 1,02,000 for 256GB.
