The iPhone X is coming to Three with world-beating specs

After months of anticipation the iPhone X is finally here and it looks like it was worth the wait. Not that you can buy it quite yet, but you will be able to soon and Three has already confirmed that it will be stocking the phone.

Pricing and Pre-Order

There’s no word on what it will charge, but expect to find the phone on top price contracts from around £45 per month, which is a lot, but far more affordable than paying the £999 SIM-free price.

And the iPhone X really justifies its price, with a whole new, super-premium design, composed of a glass back and a metal frame, while there’s a massive 5.8-inch screen on the front and almost no bezel, to the point where even the home button has been removed.

You can pre-order the iPhone X from 27th October.

iPhone X Features

iPhone 8 coming to Three

Sharp screen

That screen is sharp too, at 1125 x 2436 for 458 pixels per inch, so you can expect one of the best viewing experiences you’ll find on a phone, especially as the screen also supports HDR content for videos that truly pop, and sports True Tone technology, allowing it to automatically adjust white balance to optimal levels.

And it uses OLED, for bright, vibrant visuals and great contrast. It's so good in fact that Apple has given it a new name, dubbing it a Super Retina display.

But the lack of bezel around it means Apple has managed to keep the iPhone X's size down, so it won't feel gigantic in the hand. One thing that hasn't been kept down though is storage, as there's up to 256GB built in, and there’s also a whole lot of power in the iPhone X, thanks to a six-core A11 Bionic chipset, which is far faster than the quad-core processor in the iPhone 7 and should outpower just about any other handset this year.

Upgraded camera

The camera has had a big upgrade too, as the rear snapper has two 12MP lenses, letting you zoom in up to 2x without any loss of quality, and fiddle with depth of field effects in photos so you can blur the background for more striking portrait shots.

That camera boasts optical image stabilisation on both lenses to keep shots in focus, a quad-LED flash to keep them bright, plus advanced augmented reality skills, allowing for precise navigation and for you to project video games onto your dining room table, among many other potential uses.

Face scanner

There’s also a 7MP camera on the front, complete with its own depth-adjusting skills and a face scanner, so you can unlock the phone just by looking at it.

This is supposedly far more secure than a fingerprint scanner, and works even if you're wearing glasses or a hat. And that face scanner also allows for animated emoji that can mirror your facial expressions and mouth movements when you talk.

Video has been upgraded too, with the iPhone X allowing you to film 1080p slow motion footage at up to 240fps, while 4K video can be filmed at up to 60fps.

Dust and Water Resistant

The iPhone X is also IP67 certified dust and water resistant, so you can submerge it up to 1 metre deep for up to 30 minutes, and the glass on both the front and back is supposedly the strongest of any phone, so the X is tougher than it looks.

It also runs the brand-new iOS 11 operating system and it supports wireless charging for the first time on an iPhone, as well as promising improved battery life over the iPhone 7 and offering loud stereo speakers. With all that in mind, it looks to be one of the very best phones of this or any year.

You can pre-order the iPhone X from 27th October.
