On its tenth anniversary, Apple introduces iPhone X along with iPhone 8 series with similar designs and different features. The iPhone X comes with slightly advances feature as compare to iPhone 8. Its seems strange why the company released iPhone X in this year.
According to the Verge report, the company was planning to release iPhone X for the next year. In an interview, Dan Riccio, the SVP of hardware engineering at Apple explains the interest of releasing flagship smartphone in this year. He stated as:
Apple had originally intended for the bezel-free iPhone X to launch next year, but “with a lot of hard work, talent, grit, and determination we were able to deliver them this year.”
Moreover, Riccio believes the shortened timetable for the designing of the smartphone with the idea of a facial recognition feature and a fingerprint sensor inside the display force the company to release the smartphone in this year instead of delaying next year on compromising any of the technology. He said:
“we spent no time looking at [putting] fingerprints on the back or through the glass or on the side,” with the design of the X apparently locked down as early as last November.“I think the toughest challenge we had was to replace Touch ID. Very, very hard
Market competition was another factor for iPhone X, Samsung, LG and many other smartphone manufacturers was focusing on the bezel less design for this year smartphone, so the company considered it right time to launch the smartphone in this year instead of waiting for next year.
