iphone-x

All of know that the launch of the iPhone X was one of the biggest events this year. Not only did Apple launch the iPhone X on iPhone’s 10th anniversary, but they also priced it to be the most expensive iPhone yet! The new iPhone X will cost you a whopping $999. Which means, only technology enthusiasts with a lot of money will buy it (or you could sell your kidney!)

Released on the same day as the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have received some backlash. This was based on people believing that these phones are exact copies of their predecessors (the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus) only with a better chipset. But, the iPhone X has faced no issues like these. Apple got rid of their iconic home button as well as Touch ID in the iPhone X. The smartphone also supports a 5.8 inch edge-to-edge display, and a glass back. In addition to all of that, the iPhone X has a better camera than most phones out there, with a wider aperture of f/2.4 and optical image stabilization.

The iPhone X, just like all the other iPhones, will come in 3 models for specific markets and carriers. The models are iPhone X A1865, A1901, and A1902. These models have all the same features, except the variety of modem chips. Apple uses modem chips from 2 different manufacturers; Intel and Qualcomm. Hence, the different models would have separate cellular bands. Here are all the differences.
