Apple introduces iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X with 4K 60p H. 265 - and Face ID for iPhone X

Apple introduces iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X with 4K 60p H. 265 - and Face ID for iPhone X

[11:06 wed,13.September 2017   by ]    

Apple presented its next smartphone generation at its traditional autumn event last night, which took place for the first time at the Steve Jobs Theater, which has just been completed. The new Apple flagship model is called iPhone X and, like the newly introduced iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, is controlled by an A11 chip with the addition "Bionic" in its name. The most spectacular new feature of the iPhone X model is probably the new feature called "Face ID", where for the unlock function the user only has to look at the iPhone X to unlock it.

To avoid a flop in the new face recognition feature (as other manufacturers have experienced, where photos were sufficient for the unlock function), Apple has done a lot of work on its own data and also worked with make-up pictures to make Face ID secure. According to Apple, the probability of a foreign person being able to unlock the iPhone X should be 1:1,000,000 - in comparison, the probability for the Touch ID is probably 1:50,000 and is regarded as quite safe to date.

Highest



In this context, it should be reassuring for many iPhone users that the biometric facial data will only be stored on the mobile phone and not sent to a server.

When it comes to camera features and functions, Apple once again shows impressively where the journey is heading to when it comes to intelligent, digital image aquisition. A topic that has already been discussed on slashCAM many times in connection with AI: According to this, photo shots can now be made with light effects that imitate soft, modulated studio lighting in addition to the well-known portrait mode, which blurred the background: Portrait Lighting. If we have understood correctly, depth information from both cameras is also used for this purpose.

The cameras themselves remained at the same 12MP resolution. The iPhone 8 offers a f1.8, the iPhone 8 Plus an f1.8 and a f2.8 for Tele and the iPhone X camera comes with a f1.8 for wide-angle, but with a f2.4 for telephoto lens. With the iPhone X, both cameras are optically stabilized, with the iPhone 8 only one. In contrast to the previous generation, max. 60p at 4K is now possible as well as HD slow motion up to max 240 fps. The new compression formats HEVC/H. 265 and HEIF:

H. 265 (HEVC) has been used by Apple for some time now for its FaceTime application - with the iOS 11, which will be available from 19 September, Apple will provide the new, highly efficient video and photo compression formats HEIF and HEVC to its iOS devices from the A9 chip onwards. The space saving with the same image quality should be up to 50%.

Also worth mentioning in the video context is the HDR capability of the so-called Super Retina HD display of the iPhone X (2436x1125 pixel / 458 ppi).

Now that all the new iPhones feature a glass case on the back, the way seems clear for wireless charging. Accordingly, so-called Qi-Chargers will now be used on the iPhone. On the keynote there was also talk of a 2h longer battery life (although we don&t know if this applies to all new iPhone models).

The new iPhone X will be available in Germany from November 3rd. Prices start at 1.149, - Euro.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be available in Germany from 22 September. Prices start here for the iPhone 8 at 799, - Euro or 909, - Euro for the iPhone 8 Plus.
