Today was a big day for Apple, as expected, the Cupertino based company presented at its conference today three phones for iPhone, two as usual the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, but launched a whole new category named the first version of it “iPhone X” at the on more thing moment we expected.
The phone has a similar design with others on the one hand using glass from the front and back, but there is no key button and the screen covers almost the full width except for a small area at the top.
The phone comes with resistance to water and dust, in silver and gray colors. The screen is 5.8 inches wide with a resolution of 2436 x 1125, with a density of 458 ppi pixels.
As expected, Apple the first time used OLED displays that provide HDR colors and supports 3D touch. Since there is no key button so to go to the main screen you have to pull from the bottom up, and also to wake the phone you can click on it.
The volume of the side buttons is maximized, also power and sound, and the power button can be pressed at length to activate Siri.
Apple introduced a new way to identify the user and protect the phone through Face Recognition called Face ID by using special sensors and cameras rather than just using the normal front camera. The company has set several sensors and cameras in the top of the screen and through the TrueDepth sensor to see how far the image is being recognized.
Apple added the A11 Bionic processor with a neural drive to process this new data, document user identity and support machine learning techniques. It says it has collaborated with multiple partners to prevent the phishing of unlocking the phone through the face.
The phone comes with a new type of emoji called Animoji, symbols that change the design according to the gestures of your face, for example, if you draw the form of surprise, the expression symbol is modified to be surprised, that is the same code is modified and not choose another icon to provide the desired shape.
