iPhone X, which is the tenth-anniversary special smartphone, brings a blend of both new and old. There’s a familiar glass sandwich design, along with a dual-camera setup at the back. One of the talking points of the phone is that it features a bezel-less display with an unusual notch-design at the top. The second important feature of the phone is that it does not come with the standard fingerprint sensor, but includes what is called as Face ID, which authenticates by using facial mapping with machine learning.
