September 12, 2017. - Apple officially unveiled the latest flagship iteration of the popular iPhone series, the iPhone X. The announcement was made at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, and the Apple TV 4K were also unveiled at the event.
After months of speculation, rumors, and leaks, the flagship model iPhone X was officially unveiled. It has a large 5.8" Super Retina OLED, HDR display with a 2436x1125 pixel resolution at 458 ppi. Powered by the all new A11 Bionic Chip, the iPhone X features Face ID, which according to Apple is a revolution in recognition, and is a secure new way to unlock, authenticate, and pay. It also features wireless charging, a redesigned 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras, with F/1.8 and F/2.4 apertures respectively, loaded with tons of new features. It is also capable of 4K video recording at 24, 30, and 60 fps, with optical image stabilization, and 6x digital zoom, recorded at HEVC and h.264. The dual cameras are now aligned vertically at the back. The front facing camera is capable of shooting 7Mp stills and 1080p HD video.
Perhaps the biggest change in the design is the departure from the Home button which was a trademark of the iPhone since its first generation. Although not a new design in smart phones, the iPhone is now bezel-less. It comes in Space Grey and Silver in 64 and 256 GB variants.
The iPhone X is priced at $999 for a 64GB model, and $1,149 for the 256GB variant. It is available for pre-order on 27 November and will be shipping on the 3rd of November.
