Apple’s new flagship phone is the iPhone X (pronounced “iPhone 10”). As expected from the leaks, there’s an all-new design, featuring what Apple calls a Super Retina display. The new screen is an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch OLED panel with 2436 x 1125 and support for HDR (both Dolby Vision and HDR10).
There’s no home button, with Apple instead using a new 3D scanning system, called Face ID, that unlocks your phone display using facial recognition. There’s also a new A11 Bionic processor that’s more powerful than the previous generation chip, support for wireless charging, and a new animated emoji feature for messaging. The cameras are also upgraded, with dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with dual optical image stabilization, and an improved front camera that supported portrait mode, too. On the battery front, Apple says that the iPhone X will last up to two hours longer than the iPhone 7.
Apple also showed off a new AirPower charging mat that can charge your iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3, and AirPods (with a new charging case) simultaneously, although the charging pad won’t be out until next year.
The iPhone X comes in two colors: space gray and silver. It’ll come in two storage configurations — 64GB for $999, and 256GB for a whopping $1,149. Preorders will start on October 27th, with shipping set to start on November 3rd.
