It’s almost final. Apple will launch a special edition phone, along with the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus on Tuesday at an event in the company’s new headquarters in Cupertino, California. While the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus are going to be the successors of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, the special edition iPhone is going to be a tribute to the iPhone’s success all these years as it marks the 10th anniversary. This special edition phone is also going to be named the iPhone X. It’s not official but considering the name appears in the iOS 11 GM, which is the final version of the iOS 11, it is almost confirmed.

There are a lot of new technologies, at least from Apple’s perspective, that we are going to see in the iPhone X (it was earlier known as the iPhone 8). While the phone will be revealed tomorrow, a lot is already known. Here are the 10 features that we expect to see in the iPhone X.

Oh, but before we discuss the iPhone X features, a few words about its price. The phone is likely to come in three variants — read internal storage options — and each of them will have different price (obviously). The starting price of the iPhone X is expected to be $999 while the top variant will cost $1199. In other words, in India expect the iPhone X to be priced around Rs 1 lakh when it comes — hopefully — just ahead of Diwali on October 19.

 On to the features now, given that we have already talked much about the name and the price of the iPhone X.
  1. The top feature of the iPhone X is going to be its screen. With display resolution of 1125 x 2436 pixels, the iPhone X screen is going to be the sharpest screen ever put in an iPhone. The iPhone 8 Plus, meanwhile, most likely limited to 1080P display.
  2. Not just the resolution, the iPhone X screen also comes packed with new features. It will use OLED panel, that shows punchier colours, will have the True Tone colour featured that was earlier seen in the iPad and is meant to show more accurate colours and will be bigger in size, probably 5.7 inches or more.
  3. The iPhone X will come with Face ID, a new feature that will use 3D face-scanning technology to unlock the phone.
  4. The iPhone X is expected to have 3GB RAM. It will come in three variants as far as internal storage is concerned. It will start from 64GB. Then there will be 256GB variant and finally the 512GB variant.
  5. The iPhone X will be powered by the A11 processor, that is likely to come with six cores. Of course, this won’t be the first Apple processor to have six cores. earlier we saw the A10X processor that used six cores but then those were the cores used in the iPad. The iPhone X will be the first iPhone with a six-core processor. The Apple A processor are very fast so expect the A11 to be fast as well.
  6. The iPhone X will come with dual-camera setup on the back. One of these cameras is will use a telephoto lens (56mm) similar to what we got in the iPhone 7 Plus.
  7. The iPhone X will not have the physical home button. Instead of that, it will have an edge-to-edge screen, similar to what you get with a phone like LG V30. For now, it is not clear where the Touch ID (fingerprint sensor) that was inside the Home button is going. Chances are that either it is moving to the back cover, or is going away.
  8. The iPhone X will be powered by the iOS 11. The interesting part is that it may come with similar sort of the iOS 11 software dock that is inside the iPad Pro. In other words, even if the phone gets rid of the Home button, it will come with several on-screen software features that will allow users access to easy multitasking and access to apps.
  9. The iPhone X will have an all-glass and metal design. The iPhone X will use a glass back cover, which will also allow Apple to support wireless charging in the phone, similar to what Samsung puts in its phones.
  10. The iPhone X will support IP68 water and dust-proof design. In this way, the iPhone X will be a step up from the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, which too have waterproof and dustproof design but compatible with IP67 rating.
