NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 22 – Apple’s iPhone x has officially been launched in the Kenyan market, featuring an OLED screen that rises to the standards of iPhone and elevates the handlers’ usage capacity.
The iPhone X comes in silver and space grey colors, all-glass front and back featuring a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X.
A seven-layer color process allows for precise color hues and opacity on the glass finish and a reflective optical layer enhances the rich colors, making the design as elegant as it is durable.
“This device has an all-screen display that precisely follows the curve of the device with no border allowance. The entire face of the phone is a screen, and now here we have iPhone X,” said Sajan Thomas, Regional Business Head East Africa for Redington during the unveiling of the device.
It’s 5.8-inch Super Retina display employs new techniques and technology to precisely follow the curves of the design, all the way to the elegantly rounded corners.
While the new 7-megapixel TrueDepth camera enables Face ID features wide color capture, auto image stabilization and precise exposure control, and brings Portrait mode to the front camera for stunning selfies with a depth-of-field effect.

The TrueDepth camera brings emoji to life in a fun new way with Animoji. Working with A11 Bionic, the TrueDepth camera captures and analyses over 50 different facial muscle movements, then animates those expressions in a dozen different Animoji, including a panda, unicorn and robot.
Available as an iMessage app pre-installed on iPhone X, customers can record and send Animoji messages with their voice that can smile, frown and more.
