The iPhone X was presented on the 12th of September 2017, at the same time as the iPhone 8 and 8 plus. It's the anniversary model of iPhone, made to celebrate the 10 years since the release of the first model. The iPhone X was released in the United Kingdom on the 3rd of November 2017. It features the A11 "Bionic" processor with 3GB of RAM memory, a 5.8" OLED "Super Retina" screen produced by Samsung, and a storage capacity of 64 or 256 GB.
It's different to the older models thanks to the borderless screen, Apple finally giving in to the temptation. There isn't, therefore, a home button, putting an end to Touch ID. To unlock the iPhone X you can use Face ID (facial recognition), providing improved security (according to Apple).
The battery has a capacity of 2716mAh, giving the phone a total weight of 174 grams. The iPhone X is compatible with WiFi and Bluetooth networks. It also possesses GPS/GLONASS, NFC, and Wireless charging technology. It's resistant to splashes of water and dust, rated as IP67 norm. For cameras, it has wide-angle 12 Mpx and telephoto rear cameras, and a TrueDepth 7 Mpx front camera for even more natural lighting and contrast on FaceTime.
It's price is unheard of for the Apple brand (and most other brands for that matter), with the basic model selling for £999 and the 256 GB model selling for £1,149. It's available in 2 colours: Silver or Space Grey. The back panel is glass, like the iPhone 8 released 1 month previously. It is sold in only one size unlike all models released since the iPhone 6, and has a screen of one 5.8" - matching the smaller versions of the iPhone 6/7/8 models. It features the basic iOS 11 software.
Identifying the iPhone X is simple, all you need to do is check the model number written on the back of the phone:
If these numbers aren't legible or available, you can also recognise it via it's characteristics:
