After much time and anticipation as well as a slew of online leaks and speculation, the iPhone X is finally upon us. This being said, this computer repair downtown Los Angeles based company is not disappointed.
The new iPhone X, pronounced iPhone 10, sports an edge to edge glass display. The front of the phone has a small notch that houses the iconic front facing camera, as well as a new face ID sensor. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple prefaced the reveal of the new device with the words: “we can create devices that are far more intelligent, far more capable and far more creative than ever before.”
The new device will also feature surgical-grade stainless steel on the sides of the device to round out the body of the phone. The initial release will feature two color choices: space gray and silver. The display dubbed the “Super Retina Display” will feature a pixel density of 458ppi, the highest pixel density display ever featured in an iPhone. The screen measures a total of 5.8 inches in diagonal length with a resolution of 2436 x 1125. The iPhone X will make use of an OLED display that is, as the company explains, the first OLED display that was good enough to feature in an iPhone.
Probably the biggest upgrade to be featured is the addition of Apple’s Face ID sensor. This will effectively replace the iconic home button and will function as the new unlocking mechanism for the phone.
In addition to the features listed above, the iPhone X will also include:
- 12 megapixel rear cameras
- A11 processor with two performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores
- The first Apple designed GPU
- Wireless Charging
- LTE Advanced Support
- Bluetooth 5.0 Support
The iPhone X’s starting price will be $999 for a 64 GB system. An additional upgrade to a 256 GB system will also be available at an additional cost. Pre-orders for the iPhone X will begin on October 27th, with shipments beginning on November 3rd of this year.
