Apple iPhone X Specifications, Features and Price

We have finally seen what the Generation X phone looks like after several rumors. 10 years after the launch of the phone that redefined what we know as smartphone today, the iPhone X (marked ten) has been officially unveiled today. 10 years ago, most smartphone owners used keypads but now touchscreen has taken over their fingers.

Today Apple reached the foreseeable decision the only hardware button that controlled iOS has been discharged. It’s now all screen on the front and it marks more than one first for Apple.

The iPhone X uses the company’s first AMOLED display on a phone (after a couple of years of experience with the Apple Watch). The screen panel is called Super Retina Display and measures 5.8″ big with 458 ppi pixel density (the sharpest iPhone yet, the resolution is 1,125 x 2,436px). Both HDR10 and Dolby Vision are supported and the panel offers a whopping million-to-one-contrast ratio (3D touch is still here).

The bezels that are so familiar to Apple buyers have melted away, leading to an odd shoreline up north the selfie
camera, earpiece and several new sensors live there. They enable FaceID, the replacement of TouchID (there’s no fingerprint reader on the iPhone X at all!).

FaceID uses a flood illuminator (so it works in the dark) and a projector that paints 30,000 points on your face (sounds similar to the Kinect). The system is much more secure than TouchID, with a failure rate of 1,000,000 to 1 (fingerprints are good for 50,000:1). Apple warned that identical twins will likely be able to fool it, though.

Also app support is easy – if it works with TouchID, it works with FaceID. This includes Apple Pay, naturally! Note that Apple used 3D masks to test the system and they didn’t work – to unlock the phone, the you need to pay attention to the phone.
