It was a secret voicing. After introducing the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple has introduced the iPhone X, the device we have been talking about for months, the device that commemorates the tenth anniversary of the smartphone that changed Apple, and its users. And it has been with a one more thing …
As we expected the most striking feature is its screen increase, removing both the upper and lower edges and, of course, the Touch ID from the bottom where the Touch ID sensor was located. The screen has dimensions of 5.8 inches with 458 pixels per inch, A great screen for a great device.
The iPhone X, an open secret finally revealed
The iPhone X screen is a Super Retina display with OLED technology, a screen with dimensions of 2436 x 1125 which presents great advantages that we will analyze later. In addition, it is resistant to Water and dust. On the other hand, the finishes of the iPhone X are Silver and space gray. There are different additional technologies on the screen of this iPhone but the most important thing is the inclusion of OLED technology in the Apple smartphone.
The new iPhone X has technology Dolby Vision, HDR10, 1: 1 million contrast, True Tone and of course, 3D Touch Like his predecessors. The finish of the back is similar to the iPhone 4 and the new iPhone 8: crystal.
The removal of the Home button has made it possible for the new iPhone to be unlocked lifting him from the table, or simply by touching it, integrating seamlessly with iOS 11. Starting from the premise of the nonexistence of the Home button, Apple has presented Face ID, the new iPhone X unlock system.
For the correct operation of this technology a large number of sensors and cameras are necessary, in addition to the A11 Neural Engine chip, able to work with neural networks and depth maps to work with faces even in the dark.
This security system is protected by the Secure Enclave system and can be used wearing accessories like glasses, hats … all based on the neural network that we have talked about in the keynote. In addition, it is not only necessary to lift and activate the iPhone to unlock the system, but you have to pay attention to the device, to avoid possible unintended unlocks. If the device is placed in front of the face without the eyes looking at the screen, Face ID will not be invoked.
The security of Face ID is much larger (1/1 million) than its predecessor the Touch ID (1 / 50.o00) and can be used by Third-party applications and Apple Pay.
Another of the novelties that we already knew were the emojis, that we can customize with our face features and send them to different applications like iMessages, fully adapted to our face movements. Around the cameras, may be used by other applications as shown with Snapchat
The 2 rear cameras of the iPhone X have improved: larger, new color filters, optical stabilization in the 2 cameras and improvements in low light conditions. In addition, the sensors 12 megapixels are now faster.
All the news announced for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus around portrait mode are available for the iPhone X: different portrait modes for incredible results, thanks to the chip A11 Bionic. The novelty is that The front camera of the iPhone X also has portrait mode.
The battery is another aspect that has been treated: at least two hours more than the iPhone 7. A wave of applause has sounded in the Steve Jobs Theater, but we will have to prove the autonomy of this new device to empirically check if what Apple tells us is true.
Like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X has wireless charging. It is based on the Qi standard, therefore, those chargers that are compatible with this technology will also be used to charge the new Apple iPhones. But in addition, Apple has introduced a wireless charging base called Airpower.
