Two Smart iPhone X Features Revealed Ahead Of Launch
The iPhone X is one of the most anticipated smartphones is years. First major revamp in the iPhone design in three years, and first of its kind ever.
There’s was a lot to talk about a month back for Apple at the Steve Jobs Theater as pretty much the entire smartphone had been redesigned ground up. It might have not been just a case of limited time but Apple probably wanted to keep some features under wraps for the launch, or to be unveiled during the waiting period.
Now, two features previously not revealed have surfaced. And they are pretty impressive.
First there’s a feature that combines iOS notifications and the new TrueDepth camera. As you turn on the display you’ll see the app notifications, just like you would on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 7.
However, Phone Arena has discovered that on iPhone X the Face ID camera detects whether it is you holding the phone and shows further information instead of showing just the name of the app.
Reddit Thread Showing iPhone X Running Pokémon GO Sparks Discussion About Screen Estate
There’s still almost a month until Apple’s hyped iPhone X will hit the Apple Stores – and Town Squares, *sigh*. Since there’s been an unprecedented amount of time between the unveiling and release of iPhone X, people have been paying close attention to all the pictures posted online.
One of them is a picture showing an iPhone X users playing Pokémon GO on the streets of perhaps Cupertino. Likely held by an Apple employee, this iPhone X revealed on Reddit shows how not all screen estate is in use, contrary to the way you’d probably want it to be.
Obviously its just a pre-production model, and only one app, but it does spark an interesting discussion about what type of concerns people have with the new aspect ratio.
Of course iPhone X’s screen is the first time iOS device has a 2.17:1 aspect ratio – close to 2:1 aspect ratio in many Android phones – which means that apps need to be customized for it if they want to use all that extra space. As this picture shows at least Pokémon GO, one of the more popular mobile games, does not take advantage of this and there’s a visible forehead and chin.
