The phone has a 5.8-inch OLED screen, which fills the entire front of the device. Apple has removed the iconic home button to make way for the display, replacing it with facial recognition software called Face ID.

Face ID is used to unlock the phone, authenticate Apple Pay and cutomise the new animoji.

The phone starts at £999 in the U.K for the 64GB version, going up to £1,149 for the 256GB model.

The smartphone comes with dual 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras with ƒ/1.8 aperture and ƒ/2.4 aperture respectively. Both the sensors come with optical image stabilisation.

The camera setup is accompanied by quad LED True Tone flash. The iPhone X can shoot 4K video recording at 24 fps, 30 fps, or 60 fps.

The smartphone also has a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, which can also take Portrait mode photos.
