iPhone X goes hi-tech, introduces Face ID
This new phone from Apple features an edge-to-edge screen with a notch at the top to accommodate the front-facing camera and sensors. It also has the highest pixel-density (458ppi) display ever in an iPhone, and Apple has termed in the Super Retina display.
Apple announced three new iPhones : iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the new iPhone X. The X is the phone for a world where pricing isn’t an obstacle for users who simply want the latest and best of everything packed into one device. It’s at once fan service as the phone hits a big milestone and a tactic acknowledging that we’ve crossed a threshold into a world of truly premium flagships where a $999 price tag is, for many, an afterthought.
