iPhone X Launch: 6 Cool Features Packed in Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) Latest Toy
THE LATEST smartphone by Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) – the iPhone X (pronounced 10, not ‘X’) is loaded with more great features since the original iPhone. The iPhone X is the most complete remake of the device ever and even offers a peek into what the iPhone might become when most people are no longer interesteed in smartphones.
The iPhone X’s screen itself, called a Super Retina Display, is a 5.8 inch 1125×2436 OLED display with 458ppi pixel density reportedly manufactured by Samsung: (Talk about court battles and patent wars, it seems these two tech giants have no lost lost!)
No Home Button
The iPhone X is also the first smartphone to get rid of the iconic Home button. It is also the first to offer Facial Recognition as a unique way to securely unlock the gadget.
Like its two other brothers, the iPhone X is powered by Apple’s newest software – the A11 Bionic – along with three gigabyte of RAM.
Apple’s iPhone X is made entirely of strong glass and stainless steel. It comes in black and white, and the stainless steel designed sleek to match the color of the device.
Not too affordable
The iPhone X is not for the average consumer. The device starts at $999, £999 in the United Kingdom and AU$1,579 in Australia. The 256GB version is pegged at $1,149. Pre-orders start on Oct. 27, and the IPhone X ships Nov. 3.
The iPhone X’s latest True Depth camera system also provides a great new feature called Animoji. There are a dozen different animated emojis to start, and once you send them to friends or family they mirror your own facial expressions and movements.
