Named top cost of iPhone X

Apple is charging a quite significant premium for the iPhone X, so is this justified based on the qualities of the two devices?

In his latest research note with KGI Securities, obtained by MacRumors, Kuo said customer demand for the iPhone X won't be fully met until at least the first half of 2018 due to supply constraints.

The supplied 5W charger in the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X retail box is the same old charger Apple has been bundling for ages. This year the company launched the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus in addition to the new iPhone X, the 10th-anniversary phone. However, the fact that a mobile chip is capable of matching the performance of a computer processor in terms of raw benchmarks reiterates that the iPhone X is a powerful device, and perhaps makes it even more worthy of that $1,000 price tag. And now Flipkart has confirmed things for buyers.

Available for pre-ordering starting October 27, Apple's next-generation iPhone, the iPhone X, will set buyers back $999 or more. A video purporting to show an internal Foxconn presentation, posted on a Baidu social media site, shows slides discussing a "2017 iPhone" codenamed "Cyclops", and featuring text referring to a "Cyclops - ID Rear Touch Relocation" and a "Mesa cutout relocation and water ingress blocking issue". While the iPhone 8 contains 2GB of memory; an identical quantity to last year's iPhone 7.

Apple announced new details about how Face ID works. via an email. However, it is obviously important to bear in mind that some of the premium features from the new iPhone X do not appear in its smaller cousin. I do believe it's true that they never got Touch ID working, but that's because they abandoned it in favor of Face ID early. Indeed, according to media reports, this puts the Apple smartphone in the ballpark of the Google Pixel 2; excellent news for Apple considering the extra cache its branding undoubtedly carries.
