But with ultra-thin OLED-display.

Apple at a special event introduced the third iPhone in 2017 – the iPhone X. The smartphone received a 5.8-inch diagonal display and wireless charging, but lost the “Home” button. The device works on the same A11 Bionic processor as the iPhone 8.

Unlocking the device will now be done using a face scanner and Face ID technology, including when paying through Apple Pay. The system will remember the user’s face and read it even with other hairstyles, glasses or hats. In this case, Face ID will be built-in protection against reading faces from photos.

The Face ID technology will be used not only to protect the smartphone, but also to “revive” emoji: users will be able to record their facial expressions and transfer it to emoticons in Apple’s corporate messenger.

Despite some leaks, Apple did not add the blackout of the control panel located at the top of the display. Thus, the communication level, time and connection icons to the networks will be displayed in the highlighted “ears”, separated by a frame under the camera.
