Apple has launched the iPhone X (iPhone 10) with a 5 “8-inch OLED screen, FaceID 3D recognition, Bionic A11 chip, Portrait and Front-facing camera support, glossy metallic finish, wireless charging. There is no TouchID and a hard Home button, so every move will be a swipe on the screen. The iPhone X looks and configures almost like what was leaked before.
The screen is the biggest change of the iPhone X compared to the previous generations of iPhone. Apple uses an OLED screen and calls it Super Retina. This screen is 5 “8 and 458ppi pixel density, 2436 x 1125 resolution, higher than 1920 x 1080 for iPhone 7 Plus or 8 Plus. The edges of the machine are very thin and the front is almost the entire screen.
Compared to the traditional OLED display, the OLED on the iPhone X differs in 3 points:
- Wide range color support
- True color
- FaceID: face security, a replacement for TouchID
FaceID is the name of Apple’s new face recognition security system. FaceID can even recognize users face in the dark. The possibility of being insecure is only 1 / 1,000,000 which is even safer than TouchID. Apple said that a total of 30,000 points on the face would be recorded by the TrueDepth camera to form a 3D point-map of the user’s face.
Same resolution, larger aperture, larger sensor, anti-flicker both cams, selfie background eraser
The rear camera of the iPhone X is still equipped with two 12-megapixel sensors. Apple says it uses a larger sensor, enabling faster shooting for this phone compared to the iPhone 7. The pixels are capable of recording better color depth plus the new color filters make the image more beautiful, the transition between colors is smoother.
iPhone X has the back flash with 4 LEDs.
Unlike the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, which is only anti-camera shake for a camera, the iPhone X’s anti-shake for both cameras is similar to the Note 8. So we have a much better zoom with less vibration; we can have brighter images when taken in low light conditions.
Like the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X also features a new Portrait Lighting mode that allows you to tune the light effects on your face when shooting portraits. It can simulate lighting as if shooting in a studio, shooting outdoors, shooting with a dark background … to create the best possible picture. Artificial Intelligence algorithms will run continuously in real time to map light according to the contours of your face.
Wireless Charging: QI standard
The iPhone X uses a back panel of glass, which means it can transmit electricity and so Apple integrates standard Qi wireless charging for the iPhone. Next year, Apple will sell its own charger called AirPower, which will allow you to charge up to three devices at a time, including Apple Watch, AirPod and iPhone. This year is the first time Apple has put wireless charging on its phones, while Android devices have long been available.
The QI charger has been existed for a long time in the market (Nokia has sold many of these accessories) and we can take advantage of the many available QI chargers for iPhone X.
The iPhone X is still water and dust resistant, like other previous Apple iPhone generations.
