Yesterday we got to know the specifications and capabilities of the iPhone X. Apple did not say anything about this device during its presentation. I have gathered some trivia that you should know, and which in turn have been silent.
1) iPhone X supports fast loading, but …
On the Apple site we can find out that the iPhone X will be the first Apple smartphone to support fast loading. This is the standard for smartphones with Android on board. Thanks to that, iPhone X will charge up to 50% in 30 minutes . The problem, however, is that the accessories that you are selling do not support this condition, so you will need to obtain a special MacBook charger or charger, which in turn means an additional cost (over $ 300 if you do not have a charger).
2) iPhone X does not have better water resistance
We all thought that the iPhone X would be more waterproof than previous generations of smartphone with a bitten apple logo. However, it turns out that the iPhone X and the remaining editions of this year still have the same IP67 standard, not IP68 – as we expected.
3) iPhone X supports Galileo navigation system
The GPS position is set in the iPhone by using a network of several navigation systems. In the beginning it was an American network, and then there was support for Glonass – the Russian equivalent of this solution. However, the three models this year will be the first iPhone to benefit from Galileo – a European solution that appeared at the end of 2016. It will also support the QZSS for better positioning in the Asia-Pacific region.
4) iPhone X does not have as bright screen as Galaxy Note 8
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a maximum screen brightness of 1240 rivets. This means that the Korean solution has the brightest display among smartphones. The iPhone X does not pretend to be the leader in this matter. The X display has a brightness of 625 nits – it's so much, so it's enough for the optimum work.
5) iPhone X supports HEIF and HEVC formats
They are talking about new formats for video and photos, which will make their quality very good and by the way the files will not take up too much space. It seems to me that thanks to the optimizations, the iPhone X 64 GB may be enough for a standard user, and despite appearances – not all the internal memory will soon fill up.
6) iPhone X can have different modems
One will come from Intel's stable and the other from Qualcomm. They will be delivered in different regions of the world. Once upon a time (in previous iPhones) were the problem, because the performance of one was not equal to the other . It is worth adding here that for the time being we do not know whether this will actually be the case – the answer to this question will be found only at X's first demolition.
7) Cameras on the iPhone X still have the same resolution
The front camera is still 7 Mpix but we have improved sensors and data processing in the system. The dual camera on the back of the smartphone is also 2 x 12 Mpix, with both lenses having optical image stabilization. Such resolutions have already appeared on the deck of "seven".
