The new processor is supported by a new Apple designed GPU that is up to 30 percent faster than previous iterations of iPhone.
According to Apple, the battery on iPhone X can last 2 hours more than the iPhone 7. The new handset supports wireless charging via Qi wireless charging standard. The company has also introduced a new AirPower charger that allows you to charge iPhone X, Apple Watch and the AirPods.

The iPhone X comes with 3D face recognition feature called Face ID. It uses Apple’s TrueDepth camera system to detect your face. A dot projector puts out thousands of invisible IR dots which are checked by an infrared sensor to find a match. It is powered by an A11 Neural Bionic Engine with a dual-core design which can perform 600 billion operations in a second.
Apple claims that Face ID will work even if you put on glasses, grow a beard or get a different hairstyle. However, it will not be fooled by photographs or the like. The Face data is protected in a secure enclave on the A11 chip. The new feature even works in the dark, thanks to a Flood Illuminator.
The Face ID features can be used to authenticate Apple Pay payments and open other third-party apps. Apple has also released customisable animated emojis called Animojis. These can be controlled with your face (up to 50 facial movements). The company has removed the traditional Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The new iPhone X also comes with a new ‘Tap to wake’ feature.
The Apple iPhone X runs iOS 11 operating system. It measures 143 x 70.9 x 7.7mm and weighs 174 grams. Sensors on the device include a Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Gyroscope, and Barometer. The single SIM (Nano-SIM) smartphone includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, 3G and 4G as connectivity options.

The Apple iPhone X sports a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED display with a resolution of 1125 x 2436pixels and million-to-one contrast ratio. The ‘Super Retina’ display supports HDR 10, Dolby Vision and Apple’s TrueTone technology (similar to 9.7-inch iPad Pro).
The bezel-less redesign includes a polished stainless steel frame and glass on both sides. It does not feature a home button. A larger side button can be now be used to talk to Siri. The new smartphone is also water and dust resistant. It comes in two color options – Space Gray and Silver.
