Apple today launched three new smartphones, a new Apple Watch model and a new version of Apple TV. The most anticipated product was the Apple iPhone X, the smartphone that marks the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first Apple phone. The company also introduced two more new smartphone models, the: Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The iPhone X comes with a new design based on glass and metal frame, wireless charging technology based on the Qi standard and chipset 25% faster than the one in the iPhone 7. The terminal has a 5.8-inch diagonal OLED display called “Super Retina” (2.436 x 1.125 pixels resolution, 458 ppi), which provides HDR support and covers almost all of the front. The new iPhone X features tap to wake to start the screen. The dual camera on the terminal has 12 MP (f/1.8 and f/2.4) sensors. Just like in the case of Samsung Galaxy Note 8, both cameras (wide and telephoto) on the back of the iPhone X benefit from optical image stabilization. According to Apple, iPhone X battery life is two hours higher than the iPhone 7.
iPhone X will have a price that will start at $ 999 and will be pre-ordered in the first wave countries for just over six weeks. The smartphone also includes FaceID, a facial recognition technology that has been promoted as being very secure, but which did not work twice during the Apple presentation. The company still has a month and a half to fix the problems. The Home button on iPhone X has disappeared, replaced by a software button.
The new models in the iPhone 8 series are equipped with a glass back and aluminum frame, while the internal hardware is comparable to the one on the iPhone X. Terminals keep the Home buttons, new stereo speakers (25% stronger than those on the iPhone 7) and have more performance screens (including the True Tone feature on iPad Pro). Screen sizes, which are all LCD, and resolutions have remained unchanged.
