The special Apple event held on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater unveiled iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, as well as the updated Apple Watch Series 3 and the Apple TV 4K. The excitement was in the air months back and there were a lot of rumours before the official announcement. Some proved to be true, others did not. Here’s what the new devices will bring, and when!
The iPhone X: Say Hello to the Future
This new Apple smartphone is available for pre-order from October 27 and available for shipping on November 3. Facial recognition and an all-screen design with no physical home button are the highlights of this handset. The manufacturer’s vision was to create a device so intelligent that it responds not only to your voice or your tap but even at a glance. Their dream of creating an immersive device has become a reality.
It has a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, the first OLED iPhone screen with stunning colours and an impressive 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ration. Wireless charging was introduced, together with water and dust resistance and an all-new iPhone X design with durable glass, front and back.
The Face ID secure authentication is a new way not only to unlock your device, but also to use bank apps and pay. You can check out at a glance with Apple Pay. The TrueDepth camera brings precise and deep facial mapping.
The 12MP dual primary cameras simplify the art of photography with fast lenses and optical image stabilization and zoom, while the 7MP front camera allows you to take beautiful portrait mode selfies with lightning effects of studio-quality. The camera even analyzes muscle movements and turns your expressions in Animoji (panda, pig, robot etc.).
The A11 Bionic neural engine can perform up to 600 billion operations in a second. Powerful and smart, as is the groundbreaking iOS 11! Besides improved performance, the power-efficiency has also been upgraded, so the new battery design allows it to last 2 hours longer compared to the iPhone 7. And you can charge it wirelessly on mats and charging stations.
This engineering marvel deserves only the best iPhone X accessories, and there is no easier way to get them all than to visit MyTrendyPhone’s online shop.
