Apple has announced details of the much-anticipated iPhone X – and Mirror Online has got its hands on one of the first handsets.
The iPhone X is the company’s most expensive handset to date – with prices starting at an eye-watering £999.
For the avoidance of any confusion it is being pronounced the ‘iPhone Ten’ – and is being boldly described as the template for mobile phones for the next decade.
But iPhone lovers everywhere will be asking what you get for the money?
The Mirror’s Tech Editor Sophie Curtis was at the launch at Apple’s new HQ nicknamed ‘The Spaceship’ in California and got her hands on one of the handsets.
This is her first impression:
“The iPhone X is a stunning device, representing the culmination of 10 years of smartphone innovation at Apple.
“The display is the star of the show, covering almost the entire front of the phone, with virtually no borders around the edge, and its incredibly powerful depth-sensing selfie camera captures your facial expressions in astonishing detail.
“I’m reserving judgement on a few of the design choices. The glass body picks up smudges and fingerprints easily, and time will tell how durable it is.
“The decision to replace TouchID with FaceID may also raise a few eyebrows, as raising your phone to your face every time you want to use Apple Pay could get irritating.
“But wireless charging is a welcome addition, and the new and improved dual-lens selfie camera has some great features for capturing portrait shots.
“The real sticking point is the price. At £999 for the cheapest 64GB model, Apple has a hard sell on its hands, and while FaceID and the new camera features are impressive, are they £300 more than the iPhone 8 impressive?”
