Meet iPhone X. As the wait is over now, Apple has announced the biggest leap for iPhone since 2007. Also mentioned iPhone X specifications, price and USA / UK release date. Here’s everything you want to know about the master of 2017’s era.

What to say about Apple’s new iPhone X model? There is a full detailing ahead of the device’s retail launch on this coming September 22. Ready? Here all we go straight-forward, and no hidden secrets.

iPhone X Review: Complete Description

Starting with the Design. iPhone X’s most important part comes with an all-new framework and a stunning glass back to enable wireless charging and stainless steel design around it. Screen resolution of the edge-to-edge 5.8-inch bezel-less iPhone X display features highest screen-to-body ratio. Thanks to the removal of the Home button and the underlying Touch ID sensor, as we get more space to play with the new 10th anniversary edition. Even though the screen is larger than Apple’s flagship Plus model iPhones, the overall form-factor is much smaller and easy for one-handed use, due to the bezel-less design.

Analysts have been talking about this for literally months now and now it’s official. We know got to know that iPhone X’s 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edgeless display with a notch at top (to house all important sensors – more on the later) and with a screen resolution of 2436×1125 pixels. With a 458ppi, the pixel density is a bit higher in any iPhone till date.

As rumored, the iPhone X comes supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) and is compatible with both Dolby Vision and HDR10 technologies.

How Apple implemented True Tone display technology on iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the screen on iPhone X features the same. This also supports 3D Touch and haptic feedback through Apple’s Taptic Engine specifically on iPhone X.

Face ID

Touch ID is now gone far away, Face ID is literally in. This is by far the biggest selling point of iPhone X. As the technology underneath Face ID facial scanning is the most advanced yet with some even calling it at least two years ahead of competing tech. By all means, you can now get to use your face to unlock your device “X” and provide authentication rather than your fingerprint. Flaw? This level of functionality s provided by the TrueDepth camera which packs advanced 3D facial detection sensors housed in the op notch of the phones display.

How does Face ID works on iPhone X in a better way

These sensors also works their best in most environments, even pitch dark space thanks to the infrared capabilities within it. Demonstrated on stage by Apple, not only Face ID is most secure yet as it takes in equation thousands of points on one’s face for authentication. And also very fast and can authenticate within a millionth of a second without having to put the device right up on the fact thanks to the ability to work from any different angles.

Point to be noted!

Face ID will not only be used for unlocking the device, instead also used for Apple Pay payments. As well as face iTunes/App Store purchases, along with Safari Autofill for passwords.

What does it actually need? The data which Face ID collects is securely saved in Secure Enclave inside the device and is never and never again shared with any cloud-based servers. Do not Disturb!

As expected, Animoji via Face ID is real

Animoji is a new software feature based on Face ID tech that basically takes the regular emojis to another level. Converts regular emoji characters into 3D animated emojis based on facial expressions of a user obtained from the front-facing TrueDepth camera on iPhone X, particularly. These 3D animated emoji characters can then be shared withloved ones via iMessage or other third-party mediums.

Mobile Operating System

The iPhone X software runs a special version of iOS 11 which is tailor made. The gesture driven UI makes for an intuitive and natural navigation of the OS.

Highlights

– The Home and App Switcher, are now invoked with a gentle swipe from the bottom. Similarly, to wake up the Control Center, simply swipe down from the top to reveal the iOS 11 CC.

-Side button is used for multiple things, such as power/shut down, invoking Siri, and more over thanks to its capacitiver nature. For instance, double-tapping the side button will invoke the process to make an Apple pay transaction. In order to invoke Siri, simply hold down on the phone.

-Status bar split action on the top with left portion showing time and right showing signal bars. Wifi and other stuffs including Bluetooth, NFC, etc also there. It can even change dynamically depending on what is being done on the phone.

iPhone X ‘s A11 Bionic Processor & M11 Co-Processor

Similar to what the two iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus features, Apple has moved to A11 Bionic with iPhone X, too. This CPU goes through a 10-nanometer manufacturing procedure to offer 90% faster processing performance and 70% improved graphical performance. Same goes for M11 co-processor.

A11 Bionic Neural Engine Explained

The iPhone X’s A11 Bionic chip also houses Apple’s own-designed Neural engine for handling advanced AI in the device.

Wireless Charging

Through the Q1-standard, Apple has finally caved wireless charging on iPhone X. It does mean that you have to purchase a separate charging pad. Oh, no!

Fast Charging capabilities with the iPhone X’s wireless charging is fancy now. Investing in additional hardware to get wireless charging definitely sound like fast charging and getting more power into the device quickly. So then it’s a bit expensive as well. You can with the iPhone X purchase thanks to the faster Lightning port and the provided USB-C wall charger.

With improved waterproofing certification, the iPhone X has been announced today. For one reason or another, you can release a piece of hardware with stunning features but a lot of consumers seem to only really care about whether or not they can dunk it safely into a bath water tub. Well, with iPhone X, you can try it where its IP68 rating compared to IP67 on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is far better.

Photography

On iPhone X, the camera is also going to be a big selling point for a lot of fans. iPhone X’s camera features a vertically arranged 12MP iSight Duo sensor, complete with OIS on both lenses for improved photos, better low-light performance, and advanced AR features.

Coming down to the specs of the iSightDuo camera, we get a wide-angle lens with an f/1.8 aperture and the telephoto lens packs a f/2.4 aperture.

For video recording? iPhone X adds in support for fullHD 1080p at 240fps, 4K at 24 fps and 4K at crazy 60 fps. Support for 4K recording at 60fps is not only very high-end and expensive DSLRs, like Panasonic GH5, are also capable of recording at that resolution and frame rate.

Regarding photos, Apple has now taken the opportunity to integrate a famous Portrait Mode. iPhone X’s Portrait Mode now features Portrait Lighting which supports Contour Light, Natural Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Studio Light modes for improved DSLR-like shots.

So don’t expect much from an array of intelligent new accessories to accompany it.
