The Cupertino also claims the all-glass sheets on both the front and back panels are the most durable glass ever in a handset.

Face ID uses a cutting-edge and first of its kind TrueDepth Camera System made up of a u dot projector (50,000 dots), 3D infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered a neural engine embedded inside the by A11 Bionic system-on-chip processor to accurately map your unique facial feature to recognize your face.
These advanced depth-sensing technology seamlessly work together to securely unlock the iPhone X, make payment via Apple Pay, securely gain access to secured apps and many more advanced and new features.

It only unlock the iPhone X when user look at it even you’re wearing eyeglasses, hat, change your hair color, had an hair cut as well as whether you’ve gain or reduced weight — all that thanks to the machine learning. The TrueDepth Camera System is designed to prevent getting spoofed by photos or masks.
