What you need to know about iPhone X

By Andonijah Ochieng’
With a starting price of about Sh 102,000 ($999) many might be wondering what new features the new iPhone X will offer. It will be the most expensive phone the company has ever released to the market.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook announced during the Tuesday launch of the new iPhone X (pronounced as "ten" and not “X”) that the company has made "the biggest leap forward since the first iPhone".
Tim Cook said that the new iPhone "will set path for technology for the next decade". As many wait to see what the phone will offer compared to competition, here is what you should expect to get with the high price tag.
New design
The new iPhone comes with a new design, an all glass design which apple describes as "the most durable glass ever in a smartphone". This means the front and back glass design is hard to break. The sides is made of surgical grade stainless steel and to top it all, the design is dust and water resistant.
No home button
Apple has done away with the home button which was in the previous iPhones in iPhone X. The front design is a 5.8 inches super retina screen from edge to edge with only a small sleeve at the top for camera.
Some features that were previously on the home button have been moved to the power button but most to the screen. According to the company, the screen display is 1125x2436 OLED making it the first iPhone with such a screen.
Facial recognition
The iPhone X has facial recognition technology and now will enable users to unlock the device and applications using their faces. The company says the face recognition technology used in the design has the capability of adapting to facial changes overtime including aging.
Camera
The new Apple phone will have “a larger and faster dual 12-megapixel sensor” camera. The new camera has telephoto capabilities making it easy to take picture of objects that are far. Besides taking quality pictures, with the new iPhone one will be able to capture high resolution 4K videos.
Longer battery life and wireless charging
The new iPhone will have a longer battery life. Compared to the iPhone 7, apple says the new iPhone will have two hours more battery life. And just like iPhone 8, it will have a wireless charging based on the QI wireless technology.
Augmented reality
iPhone X is a clear statement that Augmented Reality is the next big technology in the smartphone market. The AR features in the new phone will finally bring the technology to the masses. AR helps users superimpose digital information onto human's view of the real world. It is also important to note that the iPhone X unlike some previous models will only come in two colours: space grey and silver.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should publish more on this
    topic, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people don't speak about
    such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!

    You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I to find this
    topic to be actually something which I feel I'd never understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely vast for
    me. I am taking a look ahead for your subsequent publish, I'll attempt to get
    the hold of it!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
