After months and months of speculation that involved various names, features, dos and don’ts, Apple’s September 12th Keynote event brings us to the much awaited release of the 2017 iPhones. As previously stated, Apple indeed released three iPhones this year for the first time in their history with two of the iPhones being customary upgrades upon their predecessor while the third features their special 10th anniversary addition release with a mystery name that has now been confirmed as well. Ladies and gentlemen, behold the iPhone X (pronounced as the iPhone 10).
Back to the times of the iPhone 4
The iPhone 4 was the first time when Apple moved from metallic build materials to a dual-glass panel design that was an excellent hit at its time. That was primarily because of the added premium-ness added by the glass to the smartphone that probably was never seen before as most smartphones docked at metallic build materials and aluminum unibodies at that time.
With the iPhone X, Apple’s back to those days which cannot be labeled as a surprising move by any means. One of the most widely reported rumours prior to the smartphone’s release was that the new iPhones would definitely feature an all-glass build. It wasn’t confirmed whether all three new releases would go that way but that has indeed turned out to be the case. All the new iPhones feature a dual-glass panel design that simply resonates premium-ness.
Another of the rumours that have indeed turned out to be true is that the iPhone X would feature a tad thicker build than the previous iPhone 7s. By a tad, we mean that the smartphone features a 7.7mm width and a 174g weight. That’s amazing considering the fact that the iPhone X also features improved IP68 certified dust and waterproofing as well as an improved battery over its predecessors.
