Apple’s iPhone X to hit UAE stores on this date

by | News

Tech giant Apple has announced the launch of their newest flagship phone, the iPhone X, (pronounced iPhone 10).

However, it’s not ready just yet. Pre-orders will be available starting October 27, and in stores across the UAE on November 4.

During its introduction event, the iPhone X showcased only the most innovative and futuristic mobile features ever to happen, but would you spend around Dh4,099. The price gets higher depending on the specs of the new iPhone X that you want to choose.

So what is new?

There are lots to discuss at once but some of the features experts and customers are most excited about the iPhone X include its new look, OLED design, upgraded camera quality and the AirPower Mat which is paving the way for the true advent of wireless chargers.

“The device is the display”

Latest reviews say that the new iPhone is easily the best-looking one yet. Apple loyalists may have to embrace the fresh look of the iPhone X lacking the traditional home button and the screen taking up the whole front. Although its appearance and of its Android counterparts are arguably like a two peas in a pod, the strong point for the former is that it is still light in weight and displays a 5.8‑inch Super Retina screen, the largest in screen size yet smaller as a model to the iPhone 7. Moreover, the iPhone X is made out of surgical‑grade stainless steel, the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, front and back.

The most ‘personal’ phone ever built

The previous Touch ID feature is now replaced with the improved, Face ID. Authenticated through sensors of the iPhone X’s front cameras, which are of 8pm quality, the user’s face is now its password. Apple guaranteed that the machine learning lets Face ID adapt to physical changes of the face’s appearance over time.

No cable, no problem

Perhaps the most ambitious change that came to the new iPhone model is wireless charging. The company has introduced the AirPower mat, resembling a beverage coaster, which allows the newest batch of Apple products charge wirelessly. It was also announced that the battery life of the iPhone X has been extended, lasting two hours longer than the iPhone 7 between charges–a feature that many users have since called for.

Deeper pixels, stunning colors

The iPhone X perhaps will take the torch forward and continue to dominate when it comes to camera performance. Still committed to improve quality, the new model has dual optical image stabilization, resulting in even less motion blur. It also enables Portrait Mode with selfies, allowing for a blur effect that improves self-portraits. Moreover, the front camera system includes an all-new novelty feature, Animoji, which allows sending of emojis that takes the user’s face and voice.

It is reported that the iPhone X will retail at  $999 for the basic model, roughly P51,000. Its release date is slated on November 3 with pre-orders scheduled on October 27. Alongside the iPhone X, Apple also unveiled the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the first time the company launch three new phones all at once, together with the updated Apple Watch and Apple TV.
