Meet The iPhone X, Apple’s Newest And Most Expensive Smartphone Yet

iPhone X.InformOverload/YouTube

After months of leaks and rumors, Apple finally gave the world its first look of its next generation iPhones. During the unveiling event, the company revealed three new units from the iPhone lineup, which are the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X. Of the three, the X is certainly the most interesting due to its features as well as its absurdly expensive price.

Both versions of the iPhone 8 are pretty much the same as the previous iteration without any major changes, WIRED reports. As such, it’s likely going to be both the device of choice for Apple loyalists and customers who don’t want to spend a fortune on an iPhone. The iPhone X, on the other hand, is basically Apple’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. By the way, it’s pronounced “ten,” not “ex.”

The front surface of the iPhone X is all screen. No home button, no bezel, and the only interruption from the all-encompassing OLED display is the small notch at the top for the front camera and accompanying sensors.

This new phone also brings back some favorite features such as the glass and stainless steel case, like the iPhone 4. All of this combined serves to make the device a striking product, which has a starting price of $999.

As for features, the iPhone X is equipped with Face ID, CNET reports. This is intended to make the device much more secure. Its cameras also sport image stabilization for fewer instances of blurred photos and its front-facing camera even offers portrait mode.

It’s worth noting that the two iPhone 8 units and the X all have Qi (pronounced “chi”) wireless charging, the same as that of Samsung’s own phones. The units also come with the new iOS 11, which comes with a few improvements for security and Apple’s smart assistant, Siri.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and the iPhone X will all be up for sale on October 27th. Shipping will start on November 3rd.
