Upon first glance, one of the most immediately striking standout features of the iPhone X is the lack of a physical home button. Unlike its predecessor, the iPhone X is designed with an edge-to-edge screen that renders the need for a physical home button nonexistent.
Rather than needing the pressure from the push of a thumb to initiate user recognition, the iPhone X has been designed to employ a cutting-edge facial recognition function. In order to verify that an individual meets the criteria for acknowledgment as the phone’s owner, iPhone X make smart use of infrared dots. With 30,000 infrared dots, the iPhone X has a smaller margin of error in its user recognition functionality than it did when employing the touch ID system.
Not only do using the infrared dots is to make it much easier for the phone to recognize the true owner, but at the same time, this technology also makes it very effective at exercising its facial recognition function in the dark.
So far, the iPhone X has gained no lots of coverage due to its status as the most costly model to date. The 256 GB storage iPhone X can be acquired for just over $1100, with a more wallet-friendly 65 GB edition available with for $999.
From what market experts can deduce, it would appear to be that this phone is meant to act as a pioneer for setting a new precedent for smartphone technology. Should the investment prove worthwhile, Apple could effectively raise the bar for the standard of quality expected of its iPhone X models.
On a grander scale, it could be deduced that Apple aims to break new ground in the standards of the iPhone X consumer market wide. Essentially, if Apple can manage to deliver on its ambitious new innovations in these areas that the iPhone X is been designed to hit, it will effectively have managed to both carve a new niche and dominate it at the same time. Should Apple manage to overcome the challenges necessitated by its need for sufficient supplies to create these organic light-emitting diode (OLED) models consistently, it may open the door to a brand-new average capacity for the color accuracy of handheld devices.
