Washington | Apple has launched the tenth-anniversary edition of iPhone — iPhone X. At a starting price of Rs 89,000 ($999), iPhone X is the company’s most expensive iPhone launched so far. Apple CEO Tim Cook called iPhone X “the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone.”

Apple iPhone X is the only one of the three new iPhones launched (other being iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) to have an 5.8-inch OLED display. It features Appleā€™s highest resolution phone display: 2436 x 1125 pixels at 458 pixels per inch density (ppi). The company has termed this Super Retina display. The HDR display also supports Dolby Vision and HDR10.

Apple iPhone X comes with an all-glass front and back. It features what Apple claims is “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in silver or space gray, while a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X. A seven-layer color process allows for precise color hues and opacity on the glass finish, and a reflective optical layer enhances the rich colors, making the design as elegant as it is durable, while maintaining water and dust resistance.”

There’s no fingerprint sensor in iPhone X. The TouchID has been replaced by FaceID. iPhone X uses facial recognition to unlock. Users can set up FaceID by letting their iPhone X make a detailed digital “map” of their face. Apple claims that FaceID is much easier and safer. According to the company, there’s a one in a million chance of someone being able to ‘hack’ your phone. FaceID is said to be powered by ‘neural engine’ powered by the company’s A11 Bionic processor.
