In a splashy launch event, Apple has announced its high-end model, iPhone X, pronounced iPhone 10 and is widely considered to be the final product designed by Steve Jobs, who passed away in the year 2011.
iPhone X is considered as a premium smartphone costing with an eye-watering $999 showcasing the latest technology, embracing an edge-to-edge OLED display, wireless charging, and the first iPhone to feature facial recognition technology! Amazing!
The iPhone X is the first Apple product to feature a bezel-less design. It comes with 5.8-inch display and is powered by the A11 Bionic chip.
For all the Apple fans out there (including me) let’s catch up with some of the best features of the super-hit iPhone X:
Meet the iPhone X… I’m pretty much excited!
Well, as far as the design is concerned, the iPhone X offers an all-screen display that correctly follows the curve of the device. The smartphone is available in Silver and Space Grey colors. There is a surgical-grade stainless steel band that holds the glass body and strengthens the device. The iPhone X is water and dust resistance.
The latest iPhone X comes with a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display reportedly made by Samsung. It is the very first time Apple has used OLED tech in an iPhone, and it offers some huge advantages too! The HDR display backs the Dolby Vision and HDR10 which collectively make photo and video content look good. Apple has also integrated its TrueTone Technology for white-balancing the screen in various conditions to make everything look better. The iOS 11 is redesigned to take full advantages of the Super Retina display and substitutes the Home Button simple swipe gestures. Thus, permits the users to naturally navigate on the iPhone X by just swiping up from the bottom to go home from anywhere. Isn’t that cool?
Hold on… As there is no room for the home button on the front, few of the features are given to the power button, which Apple apparently calls the “side button.” Long press the side button to activate “SIRI” and Double click for Apple Pay.
The new Face ID is the most important new feature of the iPhone X. on the security front, this Face ID facial recognition is used to unlock the device. This technique is achieved by using a new TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, an infrared camera and flood illuminator powered by A11 Bionic to precisely map and recognize the face of the user.
Initially, while going through a short setup, the face version of registering your thumbprint, you will peer into the front-facing camera. Hold your face, turn left and right so that iPhone sensors can get a good look at you.
How Face ID, Facial Recognition works in iPhone X?
The Face ID projects more than 30,000 invisible IR dots, the image and the dot pattern are pushed through neural networks to build a mathematical model of your face. It then sends the data to the secure zone to confirm a match. Apple says it has done comprehensive work to make sure the masks and photos do not fool the app. Apple described Face ID as more secure, fast and convenient than a fingerprint.
Technology seems to be advancing in every way, and yes, the tech giants are making good use of it. Cheers!

The latest quad LED True Tone Flash allows twice uniformity of light making the camera work superior.
Augmented reality is another one of the most touted features of the iPhone. The cameras on iPhone X are custom tuned for the excellent AR experience.
