Apple’s iPhone X, that is 10 and not the letter X, is finally here. The Apple iPhone can be now pre-ordered in India, but that is if you are lucky. The pre-orders for the iPhone X, which will cost about Rs 89,000 for the 64GB variant and a whooping Rs 1,02,000 for the 256GB version, started around 12.30 in India. But obviously the number of units are so low for this phone right now that within minutes Flipkart stopped taking any pre-orders.
However, this doesn’t mean you can’t pre-order the iPhone X in India anymore. There are chances that offline retailers (and there are many Apple-authorised retailers) will still be taking pre-orders. So one should call them and book a phone if you want it. Next there will be also a chance to purchase the iPhone X on November 3, but then again supply is going to be an issue. Apple had told that if you want to buy the iPhone X, you need to head to the store ASAP on November 3.
The key question, however, is should you spend Rs 89,000 on the iPhone X? That answer is going to take time, but for now here is something that you should know if you are hoping to get the X.
Apple announced that the X is the 10th anniversary edition of the iPhone. But what is special about it? Well, the design to start with. The iPhone X is the first Apple phone without the iconic iPhone home button. In its place on the front of the device is a 5.8-inch screen. The iPhone X is the first iPhone to come with OLED screen. However, even after using OLED, Apple says that the iPhone X screen can show very accurate colours and comes with features like the support for DCI-P3 colour space.
iPhone 8 vs iPhone X
The iPhone X is size is slightly larger than the iPhone 8. This could be useful if you have small hands. But it has a better design than the iPhone 8 Plus, that is unnecessarily large. Also compared to the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus, the X will also be coming in a design that uses more glass.
The iPhone X, will be having a starting price of Rs 89,000. In comparison, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus are quite cheap. The iPhone 8 will be starting at Rs 64,000 whereas the iPhone 8 Plus sells for Rs 73,000 for the 64GB variant.
Most importantly as far as the Touch ID is concerned, Apple will be replacing it with the Face ID in the iPhone X. In other words you will have to unlock it by looking at it, and it is being tipped to work in even in darkness.
Hardware wise both the iPhone 8 Plus and the X is mostly similar, other than the screen of course. Overall if you are really a fan of the Apple devices you should go ahead and buy it.
