This iPhone X-Like Device Has A Front Facing Fingerprint Sensor
The Apple iPhone X was launched in September of 2017 along with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. While the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus seemed, more or less, an incremental upgrade over their respective predecessors, the iPhone X represented the future of Apple’s iPhone lineup. Weeks before the launch, there were speculations that Apple would implement facial recognition technology and get rid of Touch ID altogether.
Apple did that, and it resulted in the display of the iPhone X having a cutout at the top. The notch on the iPhone X was met with a conflicting response but, one thing was clear, that the notch would be embraced by more smartphone makers in the coming months.
Taking “inspiration” from the iPhone X, iLA has launched its new smartphone, the iLA X. Whether the name of the smartphone “iLA Ex” or “iLA 10” is still confirmed. What is confirmed though, is the uncanny similarities between the iPhone X and the iLA X. The iLA X has a vertically placed dual camera setup at the back of the device with the LED flash placed between the two sensors. However, the company has listed the device as having a single 13MP camera along with a 5MP front-facing camera.
On the front is a 5.5 inch display with a 1280 x 640 px resolution. It has an 18:9 aspect ratio as compared to the 19.5:9 aspect ratio found on the iPhone X.
The iLA X comes in three colours, black, blush gold and silver. People planning to buy this device should keep in mind that the blush gold and silver colour variants have white bezels on the front. A few weeks before the iPhone X launch, a leaked image revealed the iPhone X with white coloured bezels. There is a reason Apple went for black bezels and the iLA X is the perfect example of why exactly.
The iLA X is powered by the MediaTek MT6737 chipset, has 3GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage which is expandable via a microSD card. The iLA X however, has a feature that a lot of iPhone X users would’ve liked on their device, a front-facing fingerprint sensor.
The Apple iPhone X is one of the best smartphones launched in 2017 but, it also comes with a hefty price tag. The iLA X however, looks close to the real deal and costs about US $120.
