Apple iPhone X specifications, features
As far as specifications are concerned, the Apple iPhone X flaunts a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED screen. The Super Retina Display features a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels, and a density of 458ppi. Under the hood is an A11 Bionic 64-bit chipset paired with an M11 motion coprocessor.
For photography, there is a dual-camera setup at the back. This setup includes a 12-megapixel wide-angle snapper with f/1.8 aperture, and a 12-megapixel telephoto snapper with f/2.4 aperture. Alongside the camera is a quad-LED TrueTone flash. Up front is a 7-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture, Portrait Mode and a new Portrait Lighting feature.
With an edge-to-edge display, there is no place for a physical home button. So in place of Touch ID, Apple has now opted for a new method of biometric authentication called Face ID. As the name suggests, this feature basically scans your face to unlock the iPhone X. The rest of the features include water and dust resistance, and a battery that is said to last up to two hours longer than the iPhone 7.
