The basic version of the iPhone with the new X display, facial recognition system Face ID and a powerful chipset will cost $999. And if you still think that it is expensive, we suggest to familiarize with the price of Huawei Mate Mate 10 and 10 Pro. SmartPad will show only on October 16, but unofficial sources have already revealed the cost of new items. The so-called Huawei Mate 10 Pro will ship with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory and cost $1 138. The price of other models Mate 10 will be slightly less:

Apple will continue to try to install the fingerprint scanner under the display
Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said that all the Apple smartphones will be equipped with face scanner Face ID. However, this does not mean that Apple plans to completely abandon the fingerprint scanner. Engineers continue attempts to integrate a fingerprint scanner under the glass screen to achieve a reading of skin pattern of a finger through the front glass of the screen.
It is curious that the final decision has not been made by the company’s management, as the use of a particular technology depends on several factors: whether Apple can achieve the quality performance of the scanner of prints of a new type and how Face ID will satisfy the needs of users. It is not excluded that unlocking smartphone by face and camera will not take root in smartphones, although this outcome is hard to believe. So after a year the iPhone and iPhone 8S 8S Plus debut a special system of sensors, and the iPhone X (2018) — Touch ID 2.
iPhone X will be available for pre-order on October 27, the start of sales is scheduled for November 3.
