iPhone X Display & Design

iPhone X is made of 'the most durable glass ever' it has a surgical steel like a premium watch band wrapped around it and also comes in Space Grey or Silver.

It comes with a 5.8-inch display which is phenomenal, with 448 pixels per inch and a 2,436 x 1,125 resolution. It's has HDR10 and Dolby Vision support and features Apple's True Tone tech.

The iPhone X comes with Apple's new processor A11 Bionic chip, just like in the iPhone 8. It's available in 64 or 256GB versions. Apart from the new display, there's also two hours more of battery life than iPhone 7.

 

It has also wireless charging just like the iPhone 8 via the Chi standard - Apple has a new AirPower charging mat that you can also charge your Apple Watch Series 3 on.  That's coming next year in addition to a wireless charging case for the AirPods.

 

iPhone X Camera

The front of iPhone X has two cameras including one infrared camera for Face ID. Both the front and rear cameras have portrait mode. According to Jony Ive, the rear dual-camera setup has been completely redesigned and there's now a Quad LED True Tone flash.

The 'True Depth' camera array features dual 12MP sensors, with f1.8 and f2.4 (wide angle) apertures. It seems very advanced, such as tracking your face in order to animate an emoji.

Face ID and Absence of Home Button

Face ID has been introduced, so you can now make use of it instead of Touch ID. Though, it is not clear if we will have Touch ID as well but we assume not as there is NO HOME BUTTON. It's a two camera system and you can use it for Apple Pay as well as unlocking your phone.

With this features, it's been specifically designed so you can't erroneously unlock - you have to be actively looking at the phone. It can recognize your face even if you wear hat, and will discount someone wearing makeup to resemble your face.

With the home button gone, you can now swipe up from the bottom to multi-task or activate Siri vocally or via a 'larger side button'.

iPhone X Release date and pricing

The iPhone X actual release date is November 3rd.  All the new iPhones will be waterproof and dustproof. The iPhone X price is from N470,000 Jumia Store for 256GB iPhone X
