Apple’s tenth-anniversary iPhone, iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10), is here. The all-new Apple iPhone is surely one of the most impressive iPhones to launch so far. It packs loads of new and cool features. These features not only enhance the appeal of the iPhone X, they also offer a glimpse into what future iPhones may look like.
Here are seven new features that iPhone X brings to Apple’s smartphone range …
Radical new design
One of the defining features of iPhone X is its design. The all-new iPhone is the most complete redesign of the iPhone ever. After almost 10 years, Apple has given us something new with iPhone X. Its bezel-less edge-to-edge display and the missing Home Button gives it a look, unlike any other iPhone. The stainless steel bands further enhance the appearance.
iPhone X finally brings bezel-less displays to the iPhones. The smartphone’s bezel-less edge-to-edge display is almost like a screen up front. The phone’s glass front and back make it appear like as many say ‘a showstopper’.
iPhone X features what Apple claims is “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in silver or space gray, while a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X. A seven-layer color process allows for precise color hues and opacity on the glass finish, and a reflective optical layer enhances the rich colors, making the design as elegant as it is durable while maintaining water and dust resistance.”
Another new feature that Apple’s top-of-the line iPhone brings to its smartphone lineup is OLED screen. Apple iPhone X is not only one of the three new iPhones launched (other being iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) to have an OLED display, it is also the first. iPhone X’s 5.8-inch screen is the company’s highest resolution display with 2436 x 1125 pixels at 458 pixels per inch density (PPI). The company has termed its sharpest display ever (or so far) on iPhone as Super Retina.
With iPhone X, user’s face becomes the password to unlock the phone. It is an all-new way to unlock an iPhone. The company uses its TrueDepth camera and the FaceID to make this possible. All that a user needs to do is look into his iPhone X to unlock it. The FaceID will also work as authentication for several apps as well as to validate Apple Pay. Users can set up FaceID by letting their iPhone X make a detailed digital ‘map’ of their face.
Wireless charging finally comes to iPhones with iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The wireless charging in the new iPhones uses a standard called Qi, the same which is also used by Samsung. Apple also announced that it is making a charging mat called AirPower that can simultaneously charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods.
Price tag breaching Rs 100,000
Apple’s tenth-anniversary iPhone edition has left most Apple fans awestruck. However, at the same time, what has not gone well with many is its big price tag. At Rs 1,02,000 for 256GB, the Apple iPhone X sets a new high for mainstream smartphones’ pricing. In fact, at a starting price of Rs 89,000 too, iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone to launch so far.
