Apple’s tenth-anniversary edition of iPhone — iPhone X — is available for pre-order in India. At a starting price of Rs 89,000, iPhone X is the company’s most expensive iPhone launched so far. Apple CEO Tim Cook called iPhone X “the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone” at the smartphone’s launch event held at the company’s new campus Apple Park (in California) on September 12.
Though so far there is no announcement, buyers are likely to get cashback offer on Apple iPhone X purchases made via CitiBank credit card. Sources, who didn’t want to be named, told GadgetsNow that a cashback offer is in the works. It may either be flat Rs 10,000 off or 10% off. So far no offer is available on the smartphone on Amazon India’s website. However, Flipkart is offering 10% Instant Discount on EMI transaction on HDFC Bank credit cards.
Apple iPhone X is the only one of the three new iPhones launched (other being iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) this year to have an OLED display. The smartphone with 5.8-inch OLED screen features Apple’s highest resolution phone display: 2436 x 1125 pixels at 458 pixels per inch density (ppi). The company has termed this Super Retina display. The HDR display also supports Dolby Vision and HDR10.
Apple iPhone X comes with an all-glass front and back. It features what Apple claims is “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in silver or space gray, while a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X. A seven-layer color process allows for precise color hues and opacity on the glass finish, and a reflective optical layer enhances the rich colors, making the design as elegant as it is durable, while maintaining water and dust resistance.”
Courtesy edge-to-edge display, there’s no Home button on iPhone X. Users now just need to tap on the smartphone to ‘wake it up’. It also has got a new gesture language, swiping up will launch the multi-tasking screen. To switch to another app, users just need to pause mid-swipe. Holding down the larger side button will launch Siri.
