Find out why this is the most sought-after phone of all time.
Undoubtedly, Apple's latest product, the iPhone X - pronounced 10 - is one of the most expensive cellularea on the market and perhaps many of us have considered selling a kidney to acquire it. But, beyond the cost, what new Apple technologies does the new iPhone X offer us?
It is worth mentioning that Apple dressed up to present this model, as it commemorated the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, the company's most famous Apple product. For this reason, he threw the house out the window and showed off with the iPhone X. In other words, it had to be a super special version and surprising in terms of design and technological advances. I'll tell you the details.
1. OLED screen
This model is the first to occupy the entire front as a screen, that is, there are no borders!
Also, it is the only iPhone, so far, that uses OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology. In OLED screens, each pixel has its own light source. This results in higher definition and battery savings.
The new iPhone has a 5.8-inch OLED screen that improves all aspects such as contrast, brightness, and color rendering. Additionally, it is thinner. Therefore, the viewing experience is much more engaging.
It should be mentioned that this solution is not one of Apple's technologies, nor is it exclusive to any other brand, but Samsung has been the leader in the implementation of mobile devices. Let's say the Manzanita brand borrowed this tech idea from one of its main commercial rivals.
2. Goodbye Touch ID, Hello Facial ID
Given the characteristics of the screen, the Touch ID button disappears in this new version.
Instead of the button, one of the most iconic elements of the iPhone, the iPhone X uses facial recognition technology to unlock the phone. Thanks to infrared sensors, it is able to recognize the angles of the face just by looking at it. Boy did they shine!
Although this is one of the most feared Apple technologies for those who have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Well, many could be at risk when sleeping. Since jealous and possessive couples can take advantage of this moment to unlock the smartphone. How many little secrets would they tell you if this happened?
Another criticism that circulated on social networks is that it turns out that the iPhone is so good at identifying faces that not even Arya, from Game of Thrones, could fool it. Be?
During Apple's launch event at Apple Park, the iPhone X failed twice.
Craig Federighi, Apple's vice president of Software Engineering, tried to explain the identification system, but nothing happened. The phone was still locked. He tried one more time and nothing. The third time was the charm. With a nervous laugh, the Apple mogul naturalized an awkward moment during the presentation. Oops, it sparked!
Whether this Apple technology can be 100% secure remains a bit in doubt. If it's not your partner, it could be Arya! Or maybe it will happen to you like Rocky.
Despite the doubts, Apple ensures that it is very reliable, since the probability that a person can cheat the system is 1 in 1,000,000. In contrast, with Touch ID, the probability was 1 in 50,000.
3. iPhone X Cameras
One of the reasons to love iPhones is for the quality of their photos. With this new version, it is intended to establish a revolution in mobile photography and make anyone almost become a professional photography.
Features included are f / 1.4 and f / 2.4 apertures for the wide-aperture lens and the telephoto lens, respectively. It also offers an optical stabilizer. But above all, a series of sensors and image processors ensure that the quality of each photograph is the best.
On the other hand, selfies will no longer be the worst photos. Well, the new iPhone X includes portrait mode and portrait lighting effect. So, you can finally have a decent selfie with this device.
4. Hearing aids?
If you, like me, enjoy music so much from your headphones, maybe this news will disappoint you a bit.
Apple decided to remove the headphone jack in this version, and from the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, so the new phone was no exception.
If you're not ready to make the switch to Bluetooth headphones (which you have to buy on your own), you'd better stick with older versions of iPhone.
5. Wireless Charging
Another of Apple's technologies, which it added to the iPhone X, is the ability to charge your phone without cables. The new cell phone is compatible with the AirPower dock to charge the battery without using cables, of course this charging center must be purchased.
The detail is that it requires a USB-C adapter and the Lightning cable and both are sold separately. A direct hit to our economy, which is already a bit demoralized with the price of the new iPhone X.
There are several advances that the new iPhone presents. Sure I would like to have one of these phones in my hands, but the price is crazy.
This device will be available in two colors: space black and white and you can buy it from October 27, although deliveries will not be made until November 3. So, it will surely be one of the most demanded Christmas gifts.
Honestly, I would rather take a little trip to a Mexican beach like Cancun or Puerto Vallarta.
