A11 Bionic also integrates an Apple-designed GPU with a three-core design that delivers up to 30 percent faster graphics performance than the previous generation. We've got you covered.

The Cupertino-based technology giant claims that the new iPhone X is "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone" and that it "will set the path of technology for the next decade". However, the phone comes with a hefty price tag: $999 for the base model, which includes 64GB of internal storage. The 8 has a 4.7-inch display while the 8 Plus is bigger at 5.5 inches.

As for the screen, the X is equipped with a 5.8-inch OLED display called the "Super Retina Display" which packs a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels. Users can also reach Siri by simply saying "Hey Siri" or by pressing the side button. It links up with your iPhone network, so you don't need to memorize a different number. It has 458 pixel per inch, which has the highest pixel density of any smartphone in the iPhone line.

Around the back there's a dual-lens 12MP camera, vertically aligned, to produce photos and videos that Apple says are sharper and better than ever.

The iPhone 8 64GB variant will be priced at Rs 64,000.

Apple's special event also saw the launch of Apple Watch Series 3. Users can also expect a wireless charging stand, which is a feature some Android users have had for a while.

For the average phone buyer who decides the sparklier device isn't worth a few extra Benjamins, the iPhone 8 is here as a backup. Both devices can now capture 4K video at 60fps as well as 1080p 240fps slow motion. To do this, Apple has implemented an electronic SIM to let the Watch connect to mobile networks. It's also added a barometric altimeter. Then there is an ambient light sensor, speaker, microphone, proximity sensor and front camera. Both will have glass on the front and back and come with wireless charging, called qi (pronounced chi).

The new iPhone also comes with a seriously powerful new camera.

The cameras, incidentally, hogged some of the focus of the presentation.

-The iPhone 8 will come in silver, space gray, and a new blush gold.

Apple has finally taken the wraps off the new iPhone X, confirming details that have been widely rumoured for months.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will cost $399+ (including cellular) and $329+ (without cellular).
