Apple iPhone X Release Date 2017: Apple's Anniversary Mobile To Boast iPad Pro-Like Display & More [VIDEO]
Apple's next flagship smartphone has been subject to a slew of rumors and leaks with zealous iPhone fans calling it the "iPhone 8," or "10th anniversary iPhone" or the more esoteric, "iPhone X" - with "X" alluding to the roman numeral 10.
With the advent of Samsung's long-awaited Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+, all eyes are on the anniversary iPhone a.k.a. the iPhone X. There's hearsay that the upcoming iPhone will boast an iPad Pro-like screen. Let's delve straight into the details:
Apple will be equipping the iPhone X, iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus models with True Tone display, just like the iPad Pro, investment bank Barclays analysts, via renowned company insider, told his client investor. The Barclays research analyst note (via MacRumors) further claims the iPhones' display will feature a full spectral sensing ambient light sensor to adjust the color of the screen, allowing just the exact percentage and intensity of white light required while reading. This will enhance the viewing experience for the user by drastically reducing the strain on the eyes.
Although valuable additions to the iPhone X as well as the iPhone 7s series, it comes with a drawback. The addition of integrated sensors, True Tone Display might make the next iPhone pricey. Apparently, it will be acquired from AMS, the same Austrian semiconductor manufacturer that supplied displays for the iPad Pro, and would cost $1 for every iPhone unit. It's worth noting that the regular display panel, used in previously released iPhone, costs around $0.60 a piece, according to International Business Times.
The centerpiece of the iPhone X, which is rumored to hit the store shelves this year, will be an OLED (organic light-emitting diode). This shred of information comes from Raymond Soneira, a display expert who spearheads DisplayMate Technologies and published a report centering on his thoughts about Apple's future phone on the company's official website (via FoxNews).
Moreover, Apple is also likely to bring in facial and gesture recognizable laser sensor with front snapper in order to verify the user's face and scan the eyes iris pattern in order to unlock iPhone screens.
