Our initial thought? it’s insane to buy a phone at $1,000). The company had originally intended to release the redesigned X in 2018, according to an interview with Mashable about the making of the new phone.
Here’s the drive-by scoop on what you can look forward to:
First, an all screen, super retina display makes it one of the most gorgeous designs since the much-adored glass encased iPhone 4.
Second, it’s got the brains to back the beauty thanks to a new A11 Bionic chip that is just as fast as it sounds (and gives the phone better battery life).
Third, although Face ID sounds creepy, it’s actually really cool and will be just as commonplace as Touch ID in no time (might as well be an early adopter, right?).
Fourth, a newly designed dual 12-megapixel back camera means a major content upgrade for all those IG shots.
And fifth, the TrueDepth camera means awesome AR capabilities like live selfie effects, better lighting, and cool Animojis (because who doesn’t want to see their reactions mimicked on the poop emoji?).
It is set to finally be available on the 3rd of November. Will you be getting your hands on it?
