iPhone X Drops Home Button, Fingerprint Sensor but Adopts FaceID, OLED

Apple iPhone X, also called “ten,” will be priced at a US$999 from November 3 for its 64 GB model. The company’s most expensive phone yet has been equipped with FaceID capable of working in the dark with the help of 30,000 infra-red dots. It does not have a physical home button and has been equipped with an edge-to-edge screen. The absence of fingerprint sensor could be the steepest hurdle for the high-end smartphone. The switch to organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display could mean the possibility of more accurate colors and true blacks to be produced by the phone.

Apple’s Most Detailed Phone Display Branded “Super Retina”

The iPhone X boasts of 458 pixels per inch in its 5.8 inch display screen. It has two hours of greater battery life than the iPhone 7. The criticism that Apple is slow to new tech could continue considering the fact that wireless charging has been introduced years after rival Samsung first opened the curtains on. The phone uses Qi wireless charging. The lack of iconic home button also makes the phone look similar to the freshest Samsung Galaxy Note edition. Unveiled in the new purpose-built Steve Jobs Theater, the phone lets users control the facial expressions of new animojis using face-mapping sensors.

Apple has unveiled Watch Series 3 with the company’s own 4G link. Users will be able to stream music, access the internet, and receive calls without linking the smartwatch to an iPhone. As per a study, the company has been tied with Xiaomi to top the charts of worldwide wearable tech-makers. The 4G Apple Watch has been scheduled to be released on September 22 at a US$399. Supporting high dynamic range (HDR) content and 4K video, the company’s latest version of TV set-top box has also been announced.
