Apple reveals why Face ID failed during iPhone X demo

The iPhone 7 meanwhile has a less powerful - but still speedy - quad-core A10 Fusion chipset and 2GB of RAM (the X likely has 3GB, but Apple hasn't confirmed). "The iPhone X is the realization of that vision". And, just as Microsoft did in going from Windows 8 to Windows 10, Apple made a decision to skip a generation in its device numbering system, going straight from the iPhone 8 to the iPhone X (pictured above and pronounced "ten").

And that's no surprise, given that the iPhone X represents a major overhaul from its predecessors, enough that CEO Tim Cook called it the "future of the smartphone". So, what will make it so revolutionary?

Meanwhile, BMO described the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as having "positive pricing surprises", with increases on both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, respectively; when it launched a year ago, the iPhone 7 started at $649. Its sizable 5.8-inch screen will impress the eye with a 2436×1125 resolution spanning 458 pixels per inch. You also don't have to live with a notch or without Touch ID if you don't want to.

The 5.8-inch Super Retina is the first OLED panel with awesome colors, deep blacks, a million-to-one contrast ratio and wide color support. It weighs 6.14 ounces, so it shouldn't be hard to carry around town.

Wireless charging has caught on in some ways in the past couple years, but it's probably not something you see that often, and chances are your phone still doesn't support it right out of the box without a special case.

It has the most powerful and the smartest chip of the processor A11 Bionic with glass on the back as well as on the front of the smartphone that is reinforced by a laser welded steel and copper layering to keep water and dust resistant. The new phone does add a button on the side to invoke the Siri virtual assistant and Apple Pay.

Ultimately these are both premium looking phones, but the iPhone X is both bigger and a little more modern in its design. While the power adapter is compatible with any USB-C-enabled device, Apple recommends pairing it with your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X to take advantage of the fast-charging feature.

The iPhone X is not due to go on sale until November, and journalists at the launch at the company's Cupertino, California headquarters were shown Face ID working in controlled circumstances. Moreover, the rear camera provides support for #Optical Image Stabilization with body and face detection capabilities.

iPhone X vs iPhone 8 vs iPhone 8 Plus: Why one should you buy? Some are positive, others contain lighthearted jokes or express concern over the smartphone. Pre-ordering for both devices will start Friday, and the phones will be available in stores beginning September 22.
