The sides as well as corners are slightly curved which gives it a premium look and holding. Talking about the grip this phone also has glass back with 7000 series aluminium frame. As this one don’t have the home button, so what Apple has done for Touch ID? Well they have removed the Touch ID and added their own face recognition unlocking system, which is named as Face ID. The phone has flood illuminator sensor which detects the face in advance technology. According to Apple this one is more secured than Touch ID.
Now coming to the internals, this iPhone X comes with Apple A11 Bionic six-core processor which is present in iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, two highly powered cores and four power efficient cores.
