- Massive edge to edge screen 5.8inches (compare to 5.5inch in the Plus models).
- Resolution 2436 x 1125 with Super Retina Display which is OLED based.
- No Home button but new swipe up gesture for Home action and another slow swipe for Task manager – quite cool and easy to learn IMHO.
- Wireless charging with lightning (but no headphone jack) based on Qi Wireless tech.
- New FaceID to unlock the phone driven by new Neural engine with real time processing (600B ops per second); use your face to unlock phone even in darkness.
- Better Dual 12MP cameras with new color filter and deeper pixels (f/1.8 & f2.4).
- Animoji to generate custom animating emoji based on your facial gestures integrated into Messages or other apps.
- Faster CPU A11 Bionic(6 cores) & better performing GPU than iPhone7.
- Priced at $999 FOR 64GB & ~$1299 for 256GB.
- Available to book starting October 27, 2017 12:01am PDT shipping early November, 2017. I am sure they will sell out early.
