T3 India - - HYPE -

Ap­ple did pull out the big guns this time!

That, they did. This is the new iPhone X, a big step up from all the iPhones we’ve seen so far.

I agree with that. I love the de­sign.

Hey, you’re not alone! The big­gest and the most ob­vi­ous change is how it looks. The home but­ton is re­tired for an all-screen look on the front.

Home but­ton is re­tired, you say? How am I gonna un­lock my phone now?!

Don’t worry! Ap­ple has thought this through. Pre­sent­ing the Face ID. In sim­ple words, the iPhone X uses the user’s face to un­lock the phone.

Tell me more about the Face ID.

Face ID takes ad­van­tage of the TrueDepth cam­era sys­tem that in­te­grates an in­frared cam­era, a dot pro­jec­tor that projects and analy­ses more than 30,000 dots on the face and a flood il­lu­mi­na­tor that throws in­vis­i­ble in­frared light on the face to help un­lock the phone even in dark.

But what about the se­cu­rity? What if some­one clicks my pic­ture and spoofs it to un­lock the de­vice?

Firstly, Face ID is in­tel­li­gent enough to dis­cern be­tween a pho­to­graph and a real per­son. Also, in an ex­treme case, you can ei­ther look away or close your eyes and Face ID won’t un­lock the phone. It also uses ma­chine learn­ing to recog­nise changes in the ap­pear­ance. For in­stance, even with a beard, hat or sun­glasses, Face ID will be able to de­tect the face and un­lock the phone.

What about the screen?

The iPhone X now comes with a 5.8-inch Su­per Retina (2436x1125) dis­play that boasts a dis­play den­sity of 458ppi. It is also the first iPhone to use an OLED panel that has an im­pres­sive con­trast ra­tio and HDR sup­port.

The cam­eras?

It has two at the back, both stand­ing at 12MP with wide-an­gle and tele­photo lens. Both sup­port OIS, faster fo­cus and im­proved por­trait mode. The cam­era can also record 4K videos at 24/30/60fps.

When can I buy one?

It goes on sale from Novem­ber 3 in In­dia in sil­ver and space grey with stor­age op­tions of 64GB and 256GB.

It adopts var­i­ous touch ges­tures for mul­ti­task­ing, con­trol cen­ter, Siri and more
