The technology company Apple today unveiled the iPhone X, the new model of its famous smartphone that, to extend the available space of its touch screen, minimizes the frames and suppresses the traditional start button.
Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled today at the event that also serves to officially inaugurate the company’s new headquarters, Apple Park, in the Californian city of Cupertino.
iPhone X is the name of the mobile with which Apple celebrates the ten years of the launch of the iPhone, a key device in the social and technological revolution of smartphones.
In this sense, Tim Cook said today that the first iPhone model was a revolution in mobile technology and predicted that iPhone X will mark the way in this field for “the next decade.”
The screen of the iPhone X covers virtually the entire front surface of the mobile, as it gives up the traditional start button, one of the keys to the iPhone’s usual interface, and eliminates the frames that framed and diminished the touch surface.
The iPhone X display will also feature OLED technology.
Another of the great novelties of the iPhone X is the introduction of Face ID, a new form of access to the mobile phone based on the facial recognition of the users and that supposes an important evolution with respect to the tactile method Touch ID.
This facial recognition technology will also be used for animoji, a personalized version of the emoji that will be created from the gestures of people registered by the camera of the mobile.
The iPhone X will also incorporate improvements in its photographic performance and batteries, which will last two hours longer than the iPhone 7.
On the other hand, the iPhone X will be compatible with a system to charge your batteries without requiring chargers with cables.
The iPhone X, priced at $ 999, can be ordered from October 27 and will go on sale on November 3.
