Here is a full list of all you need to know about the new features and specs of iPhone X, if it’s hard to make your decision to buy it or not.

iPhone X Design

iPhone X features an awesome design with an all glass and steel framework, making it easier to hold. The latest iPhone X has two colors available, Space Grey and Silver. It’s splashing water and dust resistant just like iPhone 7/7 Plus/8/8 Plus. 2 types of storage capacity are for you to choose, 64GB and 256GB.

iPhone X Edge-to-edge OLED Screen

The most noticeable iPhone X change might be the adoption of edge-to-edge OLED screen, which stretches across the front and finish in the edge. A rectangular “notch” cutout is reserved for the camera and sensors, which seems a little bit weird.

The OLED display is officially called Super Retina Display, which measures to 5.8 inch. Apple claims the Super Retina Display boasts true tone display with a resolution of 2436x1125-pixel at 458 ppi and 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, which allows iPhone X automatically adjust the color temperature according to your condition lighting. All of these deliver accurate and adequate color display.

Face ID

Hidden in the rectangular notch cut out is a dot projector, 7-megapixel front camera, microphone and speaker, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, flood illuminator and an infrared camera, These sensors and cameras are integrated to be what is known as the TrueDepth Camera system, which can immediately recognize the iPhone X owner’s face. The camera system works fine even if you wear glasses, beard or under low light condition. Face ID can be used to unlock iPhone X, Apple Pay just like Touch ID. The adoption of Face ID makes the ditching of the physical Home Button, which makes it possible for all-screen iPhone X.

Among all iPhone X new functions, what attracts most people’s eyes is Animoji. Thanks to the TrueDepth Camera system, iPhone X makes it happen that cartoon animals replicate your emotions and movements. The TrueDepth Camera system is able to analyze more than 50 different muscle movements to mirror your expressions in 12 Animoji.


Powerful Cameras

iPhone X has a dual-lens 12MP rear camera, which contains an ƒ/1.8 six-element lens wide-angle camera and a ƒ/2.4 telephoto camera. Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in both cameras makes it possible for taking great video/photos in low light. In addition, a new portrait lighting feature is added to create real studio lighting effects based on core photographic lighting principles.

Battery Life & Wireless Charging

Adopting a 2nd generation performance controller, iPhone X lasts up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7. What’s more exciting is that iPhone X can be charged wirelessly. It works with Qi wireless chargers, which allows you to charge anywhere. Apple also designed a new Airpower mat to let you charge your iPhone X, Apple Watch and Airpods at the same time on one mat. However, it will be available in 2018, not this year.
