While people anticipated iPhone 8, Apple came up with an ace and called it iPhone X. The whole screen phone marks the a decade of Apple’s dominance in the smartphone market, and to really shake things up, Apple has undertaken a complete rethink of the iPhone as we know it. The OLED screen is 5.8 inch and packs a feature called Face ID that puts the Finger ID to shame, not to mention the wireless charging and water resistance (finally). It also…wait…don’t we love video more?

Here’s the official Apple video that introduced the iPhone X to the world! Have a look and share your thoughts in the comments section about the newest Apple phone.
