On September 12, not only did Apple release the iPhone 8 and 8 plus, they also released the iPhone X.
iPhone 8/8 plus
The iPhone 8/8 plus is very similar to the iPhone 7/7 plus. The only thing that is different regarding appearance is that iPhone 8 has an all-new glass design. The whole phone is practically glass, but that doesn’t mean it will be any more fragile than before. It is made from the most durable glass ever in a smartphone. Apple is also introducing wireless charging and that is made possible because of the glass design. Other than the glass, everything is just small improvements like a new portrait lighting feature.
The iPhone X is a phone that Apple released to celebrate their 10th year anniversary. It is the most advanced phone that they’ve released. First off, one of the biggest new features that Apple will be introducing is face ID, instead of touch ID because there is no home button. The new iPhone X will have a screen that takes up almost the whole front completely. You will now be able to unlock your phone by just raising it up and just looking at it. It uses about 30,000 projected invisible dots to map out all of the features of your face, which means even if you are wearing makeup, a hat, or glasses it will still recognize your face. The chances of someone else being able to unlock your phone with their face are 1 in a million. Also, with this feature, Animoji will be introduced. That’s right you will be able to animate emojis using your facial movements.
The iPhone X will be one of the fastest phones out today. The A11 Bionic chip will be introduced in this phone. It is capable of operating over 600 billion operations per second.
It’s charging life will be up to 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7, and the camera will be faster and better by far. It will have deeper pixels and a larger and faster 12MP sensor.
The iPhone 8 was released on September 22, 2017. The iPhone X will release on November 3, 2017 and preorder will start on October 27, 2017.
If you are wanting to acquire one of these be sure to be fast when you order them because they will sell out, the iPhone X is expected to be sold out in less than 5 minutes that it is available for pre-order on October 27th.
