Apple recently announced three new iPhones—iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus Plus, and the high-end iPhone X.
The phones cost $699, $799, and $999, respectively.
Where iPhone X costs almost $1000, you might be thinking why should I pay so much when the other two newly launched phones cost relatively less and come with almost the same features and costs a hundred dollar less?
It’s true that iPhone 8 is much more affordable than iPhone X, but you will be missing out on some of the most amazing features that won’t be seen in iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. So, make a wise decision.
Here’s everything you need to know about the iPhone X.
The new iPhone X has an all glass enclosure, instead of an aluminium case, which was used in iPhone 7.
Apple has not used a glass in its iPhones for the first time; it has done so in the past as well. If you remember iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s had front and back panel of glass, along with a stainless steel band sandwiched between the two.
However, those models were not really appreciated by the customers as they complained about the phone’s durability; many customers claimed that their phone screens broke too easily when their phone fell down.
Nevertheless, the glass that is used in the iPhone X is one of the most sturdy glass that has ever appeared in any smartphone till date, is what Apple claims.
With practically no bezels, the iPhone X features a new cutting-edge Super Retina OLED screen display, measuring 5.8 Inches diagonally across.
Currently, LCD panels are used in iPhones, but OLED displays are much superior to LCDs. An OLED-based screen lights up individual pixels when required rather than requiring a backlight.
This results in less consumption of power and much faster response times compared to LED displays.
Apple has completely replaced the home button, combined with the new iOS software and with the large touch screen. There is no home button as it used to be in iPhones earlier.
To return to the home screen, iPhone X enables user swipe up directly from the bottom of the screen making it way too simpler.
New Face Recognition Feature
The TrueDepth camera is the handset’s biggest attraction. Using a facial recognition system called Face ID, this feature enables users to unlock their phone.
The system can recognize the user’s face, even in the dark using the depth-sensing technology. Based on the users facial expressions, this technology also enables the user to send animated emojis called ‘Animojis’.
iPhone X specs
The most powerful chip, the “A11 Bionic chip,” has six cores. No smart phone has this chip, but iPhone X has it.
The next version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 11 will function on this very chip and features an advanced version of its Siri voice assistant, a new “Do Not Disturb While Driving” feature, and a new version of App Store.
iPhone X enables wireless charging and charging devices from Belkin and Mophie will be available.
Apple also offers AirPower charging pad, which enables the user to simultaneously charge an iPhone, Watch, and AirPods
The iPhone X can resist itself from water up to 30 Minutes to a depth of 1 Meter. It will not harm your device if you drop a glass of water on it, but yes you cannot take it down the swimming pool along with you definitely.
