Leaks suggest we should expect Face ID, all-screen design , no home button, multi-purpose side button, animated poo emojis and a $1,000 price tag

The iPhone X is expected to be announced on Tuesday- but the company’s usual code of secrecy has broken down, signifying we already know a lot about the machine. With its junking of the home button it represents the biggest change to the design of Apple’s pivotal smartphone in years.

A leak of the final version of Apple’s upcoming software for iPhones and iPads, iOS 11, resulted over the weekend, exposing that its most important new smartphone will be called the iPhone X, and will probably launch alongside two new versions of Apple’s current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, renamed the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The iOS 11 leakage, dug through for details of new iPhones by developers Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo among others, also disclosed several key details of the next iPhone. We can expect the iPhone X to have 3GB of RAM, the same sum of remembrance as the current iPhone 7 Plus. It will use a new 6-core Apple A11 processor and have at least one 12 -megapixel camera on the back, perhaps two, and 7-megapixel selfie camera on the front.

All-screen , no home button

But arguably the biggest change for the iPhone X is a new all-screen designing, similar to that produced by Samsung for the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, and LG for the G6 and V30. It would be the first time Apple has significantly changed the design of the iPhone in three years. A leak of an internal software update entailed simply for employees testing Apple’s upcoming HomePod smart talker disclosed many details about the codenamed “D22” iPhone , now known to be the iPhone X, including its silhouette indicating the all-screen design.

The top of the device is expected to have a cutout in the screen for the earpiece speaker, selfie camera and sensors, similar to that of Android-founder Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone. Apple is also were supposed to do away with the traditional home button on the front, replaced with a virtual home button and possibly a new gesture panel that will respond to swipes, taps and other gestures to navigate the interface. Most of Apple’s competitors, including Samsung with its Galaxy S8, had now been ditched physical navigation buttons for dynamic soft keys that they are able perform a greater number of tasks.

With the loss of the home button, it is unclear whether the iPhone X will have a fingerprint scanner placed somewhere else on the machine. Instead the leaks prove iPhone X will have a new “Face ID” facial acceptance system to unlock the device.

Similar systems have been fitted to certain Windows PCs for several years, while Samsung’s latest smartphones have IR-based iris scanning systems as well as camera-based face acknowledgment- a mainstay of the Android operating system that has proven to be relatively easy to fool. Apple’s IR-based camera system is expected to create a 3D scan of a user’s face and recognise its unique shape. Leaks also propose the system will work at a wide range of angles, although it’s not yet known how effectively it can recognise a face from an iPhone laid flat on a desk.

Face ID is expected to be used for unlocking the phone, authenticating payments and unlocking security features in the same route Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint scanning system does on previous iPhones.

Leaks also point to the phone being able to tell when a consumer is looking at it to automatically silence notifications, but it is unknown if Apple will also fit a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device.

With the loss of the home button, what is known as the lock or power button will be delivered a new role. For instance, the leaks recommend the “side button” will trigger Siri when held down, and pull out Apple Pay cards when doubling pressed, in a similar way to the side button on the Apple Watch. How the multi-function button will also operate as a power button remains to be seen.

Alongside new hardware features, the iPhone X is also expected to introduce a new kind of animated emoji, called Animoji, which appears part of the new iOS 11. The 3D animated emoji can be created from face scans, and maybe your voice, to reflect facial expressions in animated characters including a monkey, robot, feline, bird-dog, fox, rabbit, pig, chicken, panda, unicorn, alien, smiley poo and others.
