But because Apple's strategy this season was to reveal an even better phone as well in the iPhone X, things are a little bit different.

iPhone X hands-on : Apple’s OLED flagship up close

Familiar, and yet so very different. That's my first impression of the iPhone X, Apple's brand new flagship iOS smartphone, revealed today at the Steve Jobs Theater in California. First things first, arguably the most important thing if you don't want to look stupid when you walk into your nearest Apple Store: it's pronounced "iPhone Ten", not "iPhone X".

Animoji is Apple’s animated emoji for iPhone X only

Your face will be tracked by the iPhone X, and in turn the emoji you send to your best friend will make your facial expressions. It's a concept Apple calls Animoji, and it'll be coming to iOS 11 very soon. Users will be able to access iOS 11 on September 19th - but the iPhone X will be the first with Animoji in full effect. This is all thanks to the numerous sensors and camera up front of the iPhone X, all there primarily for face authentication, AKA Face ID.
