On Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone X will be available to customers for pre-order in India, starting from October 27. The iPhone X comes with an all-new design with a stunning all-screen display, wireless charging, augmented reality-ready rear camera with dual optical image stabilization.
Apple iPhone X is also listed on the e-commerce platform, Flipkart, which will start pre-orders at 12:31 p.m. onwards on October 27. The device will go on sale on November 2. iPhone X will be available in silver and space grey in 64GB and 256GB models starting at Rs 89,000.
iPhone X features an all-glass and stainless steel design fitted into a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, A11 Bionic chip with neural engine for powerful machine learning, augmented reality and immersive 3D gaming experiences, wireless charging, and Face ID.
Face ID on iPhone X introduces a new way to securely unlock, authenticate and pay. Face ID uses a TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera, and flood illuminator to accurately map and recognize a face.
Face ID projects more than 30,000 invisible IR dots. The IR image and dot pattern are pushed through neural networks to create a mathematical model of your face and send the data to the secure enclave to confirm a match while adapting to physical changes in appearance over time. Face ID only unlocks iPhone X when customers look at it and is designed to prevent spoofing by photos or masks.
However, owing to some technical faults that iPhone X is facing in its Face ID feature, Apple is likely to ship only 20 million iPhone X units than the company originally planned for this year, a report in Nikkei Asian Review has said.
iPhone X also features a redesigned dual 12MP rear camera system with dual optical image stabilization. The ƒ/1.8 aperture on the wide-angle camera joins an improved ƒ/2.4 aperture on the telephoto camera for better photos and videos.
The camera app in the iPhone X also offers Natural Light; Studio Light; Contour Light: Dramatic shadows with highlights and lowlights; Stage Light: The subject’s face is spotlit against a deep black background; Stage Light Mono: Like Stage Light, but in classic black and white filters.
Apple has also added True Tone technology that dynamically adjusts the white balance of the display to match the surrounding light for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience.
