Finally, the new iPhones are launched officially! This year, Apple’s launch event was much anticipated as usual, but we had seen pretty precise leaks which had opened up the entire launch show open way before its official date.

At Apple Park in California, on September 12, Apple Inc. launched three of its major handsets as a celebration of marking 10th anniversary of iPhone’s launch. The star product of entire event was – iPhone X – a bezel-less device with no home button, as it was leaked earlier. Another significant feature is the FaceID – which is key to unlock the magnificent device. The Face data on this device is protected by secure enclave on A11 bionic chip. The Face ID also works with third-party apps and Apple Pay. Made with stainless steel and special glass, available in silver and grey colours with a ‘futuristic look’.

Another highlight of the flagship handset is its True Depth camera which comes with flood illuminator, infrared camera, speaker, microphone, portrait feature for better selfies are among other things!

Here it is – iPhone X 64GB costs Rs 89,000 while the 256GB storage version costs Rs 1,02,000, loosen up some stacks of money, would you?

Apart from the star product, let’s not forget the other two new iPhones launched yesterday – iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus which are claimed to be made from most durable glass ever used in a smartphone! Smack that phone and it’d still work, not literally though. iPhone 8 will come with a 4.7-inch familiar sized screen, a home button and all steel look; whereas the Plus sized phone will feature a 5.5 inch big-chunk display for those who like it big, the screen I mean. Both phones will be embedded with new Stereo Speakers and a powerful A11 Bionic chip – which is said to be faster than A10 chip used in iPhone 7. And both will be available in 32GB, 256GB and 512GB with prices ranging from Rs. 64,000 Rs to 77,000 for iPhone 8; and Rs 73,000 to Rs 86,000 for iPhone 8 Plus.
