iPhone X features edge-to-edge screen, Face ID and no Home button

This new super flagship phone from Apple features an edge-to-edge screen with a notch at the top to accommodate the front-facing camera and new Face ID sensors. It’s also, along with the new iPhone models, one of the first iPhones to support wireless charging.

The iPhone X is Apple’s new flagship 10th anniversary iPhone featuring a 5.8-inch OLED edge-to-edge display, facial recognition, 3D camera functionality, a glass body, wireless charging, and an A11 processor.

Today at the 2017 Apple Event, Apple has announced a new iPhone X featuring a radical redesign. Some of the main features available with the new iPhone X and iOS 11 GM are:

  • 5.8″ OLED display
  • Faster A11 processor
  • Glass body
  • Edge-to-edge display
  • Facial Recognition
  • No Home button
  • Wireless charging

Apple CEO Tim Cook opened the iPhone X presentation with:

Over the past decade, we’ve pushed forward with innovation after innovation, bringing us to this moment, when we can create devices that are far more intelligent, far more capable, and far more creative than ever before.

The iPhone X has glass on both the front and the back, and it has “surgical-grade” stainless steel around the sides. It is water-resistant and comes in two colors: space gray and silver. It also has the highest pixel density (458ppi) display ever on an iPhone, with Apple calling it a Super Retina display. It measures 5.8 inches diagonally and has a resolution of 2436 x 1125. It’s the first OLED display in an iPhone, which Phil Schiller explains bluntly: it’s “the first OLED display great enough to be on an iPhone.” Like the iPhone 8, the iPhone X also has True Tone display technology.

The iPhone X has dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, and it’s equipped with optical image stabilization on both lenses. The sensors are both larger and faster than previous generations, says Apple, and the main camera has a f/1.8 aperture while the telephoto lens has a f/2.4 aperture. In between the two cameras is a quad-LED True Tone flash that is claimed to provide scene illumination that is twice as uniform as previously. The new phone also offers 4K video recording and stereo speakers for better audio playback.

What’s the iPhone X price?

The iPhone X is priced at $999 with 64GB of storage or $1,149 with 256GB. Preorders open on October 27th, and shipping begins November 3rd.
