As soon as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus came out, we began to speculate on the following. And that was still a year away. But the day of the expected Apple keynote has arrived . Finally we have been able to know the iPhone X, to which so much rumor has perhaps done more harm than good. Because much is expected of this new phone from the bite apple.
Many pointed out that it will be the best iPhone in the history of the Cupertino firm. But of course, that also affirmed the own Apple when presented the ones of the seven. In any case, let’s take a look at the specifications of the iPhone X. And so know, at least on paper, whether or not we are the best smartphone company.
iPhone X: Features
This new model seeks to make a difference to others. And it does so with its design, which breaks with everything Apple has released to date. What really stands out is that it’s all screen.
Design and display
It has dimensions of 143.6 x 70.9 mm, weighing 174 grams and a thickness of 7.7 mm. His body is made of high strength glass, according to Apple. We found this material in both the front and back. It is accompanied by stainless steel, since it is resistant to water and dust (IP67 certified).
It is striking that the Home button has disappeared on the iPhone X. So everything works with gestures as intuitive as sliding your finger. It is clear that Apple wants to enter to compete against those Android terminals that bet on a frontal without buttons.
As for the screen, the iPhone X surprises with a 5.8 inch Super Retina OLED panel with rounded corners. It boasts dazzling colors and good gloss, plus more authentic blacks and a contrast of 1,000,000: 1. Like its companions, it has a True Tone screen with 3D Touch. It supports HDR, Dolby Vision and HDR10 content.
Processor and Storage
Like the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, this model mounts a Aion Bionic 6-core processor. It has a 64-bit architecture, neural motor and integrated M11 motion coprocessor. Apple claims that this is an evolution of the A10 in terms of performance and energy efficiency. According to the firm, it is much more powerful and consumes almost half the previous chip.
In addition, one of the great novelties is the wireless charge, apart from the fast charge. So it is expected that with a more efficient chip and an improved battery, the autonomy is superior to other models.
In terms of storage capacity, the same options as the iPhone 8. There are two options: 64 GB or 256 GB. Yes, the average of 128 GB has disappeared. As always, Apple has not provided data on how much RAM has this phone, but it is very likely to be 3 GB.
In the photographic section, the iPhone X matches the iPhone 8 Plus. It has a dual main camera of 12 MP + 12 MP , with wide angle and telephoto (f/1.8 and f/2.4, respectively). It also has dual optical image stabilization, 6-element lens, Enhanced Portrait Mode, 4-LED True Tone flash and 2x zoom, among other features. Supports 4K video recording up to 60fps.
As for the front camera, it is 7 MP as in the other new terminals. It has f / 2.2 focal aperture and also with Portrait Mode. It seems that Apple wants to give greater weight to the camera that is used so much for selfies, direct on social networks and video calls.
Availability and price
The new iPhone X will be available from November 3, although the reservation period has already been opened. As for prices, we are facing the most expensive model that Apple has introduced today. In particular, the version with 64 GB costs 1,159 euros. Four figures up to 1,329 euros for the configuration with 256 GB. The new iPhone X is available in Silver and Space Gray (silver and dark gray).
