Apple fans would have already heard about the spanking new iPhone X – a stunning smartphone designed to commemorate 10 years of the iconic phone that many of us now own. And according to Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, the new iPhone X is “the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone”, boasting a whole slew of features to (hopefully) justify its hefty price tag.

It’s All Screen

The phone will have a 5.8-inch OLED screen filling the entire front panel, stretching all the way to the rounded edges to provide. The Super Retina display will also mean that you’ll get to enjoy vibrant colours and stunning displays like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. Not bad, for a comfortable 5.8-inch.

Smart Phone, Smarter Camera

It comes loaded with dual-lens 12-megapixel rear camera, dual optical image stabilization, wide-angle f/1.8 aperture lens and a telephoto f/2.4 aperture lens. Or in simpler terms, this means that the iPhone X’s rear camera function is pretty dope (as compared to the iPhone 8 Plus).

But for those who are a little more narcissistic (we are definitely guilty), the front camera and its portrait mode will allow you to up that selfie game to the next level. And beyond that, Apple’s latest technology, the Face ID, will allow you to unlock your phone with just your face. You can also turn yourself into an animated Animoji, thanks to the TrueDepth camera that’s unique to this iteration of the iPhone.

Wireless Worry

Say goodbye to misplaced wires or frayed charging cables. The new iPhone X supports wireless charging, allowing you to go anywhere without worrying about bringing an extra equipment. Upgraded power cores will also mean that the new phone runs much faster, and uses less battery power.

The Downside

Slated for release in November, the iPhone X is a truly remarkable gadget. But this also makes it the most expensive iPhone ever. Here’s how the 64GB iPhone X compares in terms of price in various markets.
