Baku, September 13, AZERTAC
Apple has unveiled their newest smartphone, the iPhone X, during a news conference commemorating the ten-year anniversary of the release of the original iPhone, according to Sputnik. The phone, which is to retail for a staggering $999, has a bevy of new features and improvements to offer Apple’s diehard fans.
The iPhone X (pronounced "iPhone Ten") was described by Apple CEO Tim Cook as "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone" during the reveal. The biggest change from an aesthetic perspective is that the X's screen covers the entirety of its face, save for the front camera on top. The frame is razor-thin. Like the iPhone 8, the front and back are made of glass with a stainless steel band around the sides.
One major change to the X is that the famous "one-button design" of the iPhones has gone to a "no-button design." The home button has been removed entirely, and all navigation is done through the screen.
More importantly, the facial tracking can be used to make emojis that replicate your facial expressions. Open your mouth in shock and then send your friends an "animoji" of a cartoon panda or poop or robot doing exactly that. Truly, the future is now.
The back camera is fundamentally the same as its predecessors, but more powerful with an automatic video stabilizer. The front camera meanwhile, has added automatic portrait mode and portrait lighting for selfies.
The battery life has been improved as well, two hours more than the iPhone 7. The 7 was much-maligned for its low battery life, which was one of the main changes between the 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. The X also has a charging mat that allows for wireless charging of as many as three Apple phones, watches, and airpods at once.
The iPhone X 64GB and 256GB is available for preorder October 27 and goes on sale on November 3. We appear to have skipped over the iPhone 9 entirely.
