Apple will announce the iPhone X price and release date today and it’s set to be the 10th anniversary iPhone so the iPhone X name would be fitting for that reason
Apple’s next iPhone is due for a major redesign, not just a minor refresh. What will its best features be? When will it be released?
For anyone who has been living under a rock for the past 24 hours a huge leak has been reported to provide details of the upcoming launch – perhaps this is all a PR stunt from the company, not forgetting the handset that was reported to be found in a bar a few years back.
Here is what we know so far:
The actual iPhone X release date is expected to be in October, according to several leaks that have it going on sale after the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus, which are expected to get a relatively routine spec bump – although if the iPhone X is indeed called that then those phones may be called the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.The iPhone X price is expected to be $999 (£900, AU$1,250). That’s a 54% price increase in the US over the iPhone 7, which costs $650 (£599, AU$1,079).
The iPhone X is going to look radically different to every previous iPhone, with a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen that rids Apple’s smartphone of bezels, but also its usual home button.
The device won’t have a typical home button thanks to that all-screen display which will take up almost the entire front of the phone.
Instead, it’ll have an on-screen button, though not even the leaks really give us an idea of what this new button will look like or how it will work.
Some important iPhone X specs have been leaked ahead of the launch event, tipping developers off to the fact that Apple will use an A11 Fusion chip.
What does that mean? The iPhone X should be seriously fast, with the specs leak indicating a six-core A11 Fusion processor with four high-performances cores.
That’s significant because the A10 Fusion chip in the four-core iPhone 7 series has two high-performance cores. In case you’re wondering, the other two cores we never mention in each are energy-efficient cores – there’s no need for powerful chip engines running when your phone is lying idle.
Multiple iPhone X leaks have shown that Apple is changing the orientation of the dual-lens camera in its new smartphone.
We look forward to the launch event this evening where we will be providing further information on the handset as and when the information becomes available.
