Apple has officially announced their flagship product, the iPhone X (pronounced "ten"): as rumored, the handset features a nearly bezel-less OLED display and Face ID, which allows users to unlock the device and make payments using their face with a new camera system dubbed "TrueDepth." The iPhone X is also said to last two hours more than the iPhone 7 and can charge wirelessly via "AirPower."

iPhone X features the new A11 Bionic chip with a special neural engine that helps power Face ID. Apple says Face ID can’t be spoofed by photographs, masks, and makeup, and changing your actual appearance with a hat or beard or makeup won’t prevent Face ID from working. Apple says all the processing is completed locally and securely, and the feature only works when your eyes are open and you’re paying attention and not looking away.
