Apple Officially Unveils Redesigned iPhone X, Featured With 5.8-Inch Super Retina OLED Edge-to-Edge Display, Face ID

Apple announced the iPhone X during its special event at Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, Cupertino today. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone X was "the future of the smartphone" and will "set the path for technology for the next decade". The new model is available in two colors: space gray and silver. Its new Super Retina Display uses a 5.8-inch OLED display with a full-screen design.


"For more than a decade, our intention has been to create an iPhone that is all display. The iPhone X is the realization of that vision," said Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer. "With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionized the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone — one in which the device disappears into the experience."

The iPhone X, pronounced "ten", features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, including HDR, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and  It also supports True Tone like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus announced earlier today.

Since the Home button was removed, the device uses touch-based gestures to interact with iOS 11 in lieu of a home button, and is powered by a next-generation A11 Bionic neural processor that handles world tracking and scene recognition, backed up by a GPU that enables graphics at 60 frames per second. The handset comprises a glass and stainless steel design, which features a front-facing camera with advanced facial recognition called Face ID.


According to Apple, the Face ID can’t be spoofed by photographs, masks, and even makeups, whilst changing your actual appearance with a hat or beard or makeup won’t prevent Face ID from working. Apple says all the processing is completed locally and securely, and the feature only works when you’re eyes are open and you’re paying attention and not looking away.

Speaking to security, Touch ID already has a 1 in 50,000 stat for security. While Face ID easily beats that score with 1 in a million. Since Touch ID was removed, Face ID now taking the role to use with Apple Pay and the new side button and in apps that already support Touch ID. In addition, iPhone X also uses facial recognition for Apple’s new Animoji feature in Messages. This uses facial tracking to capture your expressive as well as your voice to send animated emoji.


The new flagship smartphone is also features with a redesigned, vertically aligned dual-lens TrueDepth 12-megapixel rear camera, equipping Quad-LED True Tone flash with dual optical image stabilization, while Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting on both the front and rear cameras offers dramatic studio lighting effects for creating portraits with a shallow depth-of-field effect in five different lighting styles.


Meanwhile, iPhone X features 2 hours more battery life than the iPhone 7. Wireless Qi charging is also available through the glass back. Apple also gave a sneak peek to AirPower, an wireless charging accessory designed by the company itself which coming in 2018, it also can charges for Apple Watch Series 3, and a new optional AirPods charging case.

The iPhone X is fast-charge capable, while its surgical steel band is said to enhance its water and dust resistance. The handset will be available in 64GB and 256GB storage capacities, priced from $999. The iPhone X will be able to pre-order from October 27 and will ship on November 3.
