Apple iPhone X Pre-Orders Begin Today
Apple launched the iPhone X on the 12th of September in the US and announced that the phone will be available to pre-order from the 27th of October in markets such as India. Priced at Rs 89000 for the 64GB variant, the Apple iPhone X will be the most expensive iPhone ever launched in India and the pre-orders begin at 1. Reports suggest that due to the intricate manufacturing process of the FaceID technology, Apple has only been able to produce half the iPhone X’s it expected to make in 2017. This means that the demand will be high and you will have to be extremely diligent to successfully pre-order the iPhone X when the bookings go live.
The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch 2436 x 1125 px OLED True Tone Super Retina display with minimal bezels around it. The phone runs iOS 11 and is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery which charges through the Apple signature lightning port placed at the bottom of the phone. Under the hood, the smartphone has the Apple A11 Bionic chipset with a neural engine, a hexa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and storage options of 64GB, and 256GB. As is with every iPhone, the onboard storage can not be expanded via a microSD card. The small bezels mean there is no physical home button, which is now replaced with gestures for navigation. Siri is activated by pressing the now larger lock/unlock button. The iPhone X is also IP67 certified for water and dust resistance.
The iPhone X has dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, and it’s equipped with dual optical image stabilisation. The sensors are both larger and faster, according to Apple, and the main camera is equipped with a wide angle lens and has an f/1.8 aperture while the secondary telephoto lens has an f/2.4 aperture. In between the two cameras is a quad-LED True Tone flash. Both the front and back cameras have the portrait mode. The rear cameras have the portrait lighting feature, just like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
