Apple iPhone X
Apple has officially announced the iPhone X at an event held in San Jose, California. The iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10) aptly named to mark the tenth-anniversary of the original iPhone – features a design that is completely different from the company’s previous generation iPhones.
The smartphone has a screen that wraps all the way around the front of the smartphone with all-new Super Retina resolution, a reinforced glass design, and support for wireless charging. It also comes with a system called “Face ID” that lets you unlock it using just your face. You can also control your emojis using your own expressions.
The iPhone X is made with glass and stainless steel, which allows for wireless charging and it is available in Silver or Space Grey. It is still dust- and water-resistant, thus satisfying the IP67 protection standards.
The iPhone X looks stunning, with an OLED display that stretches across the entire front of the phone for an edge-to-edge finish. Apple has called the display Super Retina, and it is 5.8-inches diagonally. The iPhone X will be made available in 64GB and 256GB configurations, which will fetch £999 and £1,149 in the UK, respectively. Pricing in the US starts at $999.
As expected, the iPhone X will not be released at the same time as the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which will start shipping on September 22, 2017. Instead, Apple has announced that iPhone X pre-orders will begin on October 27, with shipping to begin November 3, 2017. Apple will also make the handset available through its iPhone Upgrade Program, with monthly payments starting at £56.45.
In addition to iPhone X, Apple has also announced 2 other iPhones – iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. You can read about the specs, price, and availability of iPhone 8 here and iPhone 8 Plus here.
