Tech News: iPhone X Release Date, Price and Features

Gigionthat.com has learned that Apple announced the iPhone X at its event on Tuesday. It’s pronounced “iPhone 10.”

The iPhone X is Apple’s most high-end iPhone to date. It offers a complete redesign from the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and was introduced in addition to the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

It features a new 5.8-inch OLED display that’s more colorful than the LCD screens Apple used in earlier iPhones. Apple is branding it the “Super Retina Display.” The screen runs almost top to bottom and side to side, too, something Apple has never done before.

Apple said OLED displays come with trade-offs compared to its Retina Displays, but that its Super Retina Display supports HDR, offers the best color accuracy on the market and 3D Touch support.

There’s no longer a home button. You swipe up from the bottom of the screen to return home. That gesture also allows a user to multitask — swipe up and pause, and you can multitask and switch between apps. Users can switch between apps by swiping along the bottom of the screen, too. Users can call up Siri by saying “Hey Siri” or by pressing the side button.

Since there’s no home button, Touch ID no longer exists on the front of the phone. Apple will allow users to unlock the iPhone X with a new feature called Face ID. Apple uses an infrared camera, a front-camera and other sensors to first record and then detect a user’s unique face.

Face ID can be used to create special 3-D emoji that share similar facial reactions to you. The feature is called Animoji, and you can control them with your face thanks to its ability to map more than 50 facial muscles. Animoji can be sent inside the Messages app.

Like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X supports wireless charging and is water-resistant.

The iPhone X has dual 12-megapixel sensors just like in iPhone 8 Plus and a newer telephoto lens that lets in more light. The front and rear cameras support portrait mode, which allows users to take professional-looking photos by blurring the background. It also has dual optical image stabilization for both lenses, which helps prevent blur while moving and in low-light. A new Quad LED True Tone flash also improves pictures shot in the dark.

The iPhone X will be available in space gray and silver. 64GB and 256GB models will be available, starting at $999. Orders start Oct. 27 and shipments start Nov. 3.
