All those features have been available on other smartphones that sold for less than $1,000, but Apple's sense of design and marketing flair has a way of making them seem irresistible - and worth the extra expense.

The front-facing camera has been fitted a new technology called TrueDepth that allows it to support a new unlocking method that Apple calls FaceID.
The biggest competitor to the 5.8-inch 64GB iPhone X is the 5.8-inch 64GB Samsung S8, which also has an edge-to-edge display, facial recognition and wireless charging. The iPhone X with its refreshed design is expected to inspire rival brands to launch similar phones in the near future.
The iPhone 7 Plus 128GB variant is listed at Rs 68,000 on the company's website.
Manufacturers embedded the new camera which has the faster autofocus in these phones.

The iPhone line has quite a few SKUs now, a bit confusing but covering price points down to the lowered SE at $350 and providing a 4.7 " screen in the $400-500 range.
Forrester analyst Julie Ask said she's more excited about the cellular Watch than the iPhone X. Apple iPhone 8 comes with IP67 rating, which makes the splash, water, and dust resistant. Launched with a hefty price tag of almost Rs 1 lakh, Apple's iPhone X has no novelty factor.

And now we have flagship iPhones that can harness the power of this capability which will be a transformative experience for a user.
