After almost countless leaks about its design, Apple celebrates the tenth anniversary of iPhone with iPhone X, a unique sample of the (probably) the most popular flagship with an all-glass design. An advanced unlocking using Face ID and TrueDepth camera are few of gifts added to it, along with a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, A11 Bionic chip, wireless charging and an improved rear camera with dual optical image stabilisation.
The TrueDepth camera can recognize over 50 different facial muscle movements and animate those expressions in a dozen different Animoji. Available as an iMessage app pre-installed on iPhone X, now customers can record and send Animoji messages with their voice that can smile or frown.
Much like the recently launched Galaxy Note 8, iPhone’s HDR display supports Dolby Vision and HDR10. True Tone dynamically adjusts the white balance of the display to match the surrounding light and gives an experience similar to Amazon Kindle.
For optical excellence dual 12MP rear camera system with a dual optical image, stabilisation is there with ƒ/1.8 aperture and a wide-angle camera. Also, an improved ƒ/2.4 aperture over the telephoto camera is there for better closely shot photos and videos. Opticals are tuned for AR experience with gyroscopes and accelerometers for accurate motion tracking.
iOS 11 is redesigned as Super Retina display replaces the Home button. It has smoother gestures and Face ID using TrueDepth, infrared camera and flood illuminator, to unlock the phone. It also has A11 Bionic to accurately map and recognise a face. If you were expecting an on screen fingerprint sensor, you will be disappointed though.
The smartphone is available in silver and space grey colours in 64GB and 256GB models at Rs 89,000 ($999) from November 3 in India. Its pre-orders are open from October 27.
