What are the specifications of the Apple iPhone X?


I do not want to push you to buy the phone just like that but I want you to see the phone’s specifications for yourself before you order one for yourself.  The phone features include the following.

  • High-resolution cameras
  • It is unlocked
  • Broad network compatibility

1) Design

This phone measures 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm (5.65 x 2.79 x 0.30 in). It weighs 174 g (6.14 oz). You can see the phone is light to carry around. The body design is also suitable if you want to carry the phone in your pockets. Furthermore, the phone has a Gorilla Glass glass front, Gorilla Glass glass back, and a stainless steel frame. It is such a tough phone and as long as you are supposed to take care to avoid falls, the phone is not easily damaged.

Also, the phone has a Nano-SIM. It is also IP67 dust/water resistant (up to 1m for 30 mins). This explains why the phone is so durable as well as being affordable. It is one of the cheap iPhones without a contract you can get today at Amazon or any other relevant store.

2) Display

The phone has a 5.8 inches Super Retina OLED, HDR10, 625 nits (typ), which occupies an area of 84.4 cm². The phone has an 82.9% screen-to-body ratio. If you like phones whose screens occupy large areas of a phone like me, then you may have this phone.

The screen has a resolution of 1125 x 2436 pixels with a 19.5:9 ratio. It has a 458 PPI density. Moreover, the phone has a scratch-resistant glass with an oleophobic coating. Besides, the phone has a Dolby Vision, wide color gamut, 3D Touch, and true-tone.

3) Platform

Apple iPhone X operates on iOS 11.1.1 which is upgradable to iOS 14.1. This makes it a good option for the MetroPCS free phone upgrade program. If you are a MetroPCS subscriber, then why don’t you consider this phone? Additionally, the phone works on Apple A11 Bionic (10 nm) Chipset.

Furthermore, the phone has Hexa-core 2.39 GHz (2x Monsoon + 4x Mistral) CPU and Apple GPU (three-core graphics) GPU. If you can upgrade this phone OS to iOS 14.1., which is the latest OS for iPhone, then it means that you can experience the best features from the iPhone. Get it and enjoy it to the fullest.

This phone has dual main cameras which are 12 MP (f/1.8, 28mm (wide), 1/3″, 1.22µm, dual pixel PDAF, OIS) and 12 MP (f/2.4, 52mm (telephoto), 1/3.4″, 1.0µm, PDAF, OIS, 2x optical zoom).

Looking at the mains and selfie cameras, you can see that this phone is capable of taking high-quality photos as well as videos. You can use it as a Vlogging phone!

5) Communication

Amazingly, the phone has various communication technologies that will for sure enhance the phone’s usage. It has WLAN which features Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, and hotspot. I personally like hotspots since this technology eliminates the need to have a modem. You can share your internet to multiple devices and browse at high speeds.

Also, the phone has Bluetooth 5.0 (A2DP, LE). Share and receive files easily with your friends and enjoy the most amazing moments ever. The phone also has GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, and QZSS. If you know how to use a GPS, then you will never get lost while having this phone.

The phone has NFC. However, it does not have an FM radio. It features Lightning and USB 2.0 which helps you to charge the device as well as share files with a computer.

4) Battery

It works with a Li-Ion 2716 mAh battery which is non-removable. The phone’s battery is not so large to last for long when under heavy usages like browsing or video recording. However, it has a long talk time of up to 21 hours (3G) and up to up to 60 hours of music play.

The phone has a 15W fast charging which can reach 50% in 30 mins. Also, it has USB power delivery 2.0. And a Qi wireless charging.

5) Network

This is a global phone as it works with GSM /CDMA HSPA / LTE. Furthermore, it is unlocked and thus you can use it with any network of your choice. Change SIM cards and insert your favorite ones to enjoy various networks of your choice. Knowing the type of network a phone supports should be the priority so that you do not end up getting an unsuitable phone.

Interestingly, you can travel with this phone to other countries and still use the local networks with the phone. This is a common feature to many unlocked phones anyway. So if you want to buy an iPhone without a contract, then Apple iPhone X is among the phones you should consider.
