The iPhone X’s new features
Arriving on the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, the iPhone X is the first model in years to display a radical redesign.
A taller model compared to the new iPhone 8, the X is still smaller than the 8 Plus, with a 5.8-inch display. The major difference is the introduction of a total glass front and back, kicking away the original Home button and thus Touch ID.
However, Apple have introduced Face ID – facial recognition to unlock the phone, working in both light and darkness.
Another change is the swap out of the original LCD screen for an OLED panel. This results in the highest resolution ever used in an iPhone, with better contrast and more colours.
Internally, the specs are similar to the iPhone 8 Plus. A new A11 chip increases efficiency and speeds up the performance overall. This in addition to 3GB of RAM creates a smoother experience.
Camera-wise, like the iPhone 8 Plus, the X offers a larger sensor than previous models for more light capturing, and video can be captured at 4K up to 6- fps.
The final change to mention is the charging. The X and the 8 are the first to offer wireless charging. Simply place the phone on a charging pad and forget about ever plugging in a cable.
