The iPhone X sports an all glass and stainless steel design with all-screen display. The handset features all-glass front and back. It features a 5.8-inch Super Retina display and packs the company's new A11 Bionic chip which comes with neural engine for supporting machine learning, augmented reality and 3D gaming. The handset supports wireless charging and Face ID, which is the company's new biometric feature. The company has been heavily marketing the new camera's Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting which enables selfies with a depth-of-field effect and also Animoji, which captures and analyses over 50 different facial muscle movements to bring emoji to life.
The rear camera now packs dual optical image stabilisation which includes new colour filter, deeper pixels, and image signal processor.
