The face ID has been enabled by TrueDepth camera. The facial mapping is used to project and analyse over 30,000 invisible dots and create a depth map of your face.

Machine learning lets Face ID adapt to physical changes in your appearance over time.
Expect a larger and faster 12MP sensor. Both rear cameras have optical image stabilization. It gets a new colour filter, deeper pixels and a telephoto that comes with OIS. The wide-angle and telephoto cameras on iPhone X enable optical zoom, as well as digital zoom of up to 10x for photos and 6x for videos. The front camera will let you create selfies that are capable of artfully blurring the backgrounds.
iPhone X will come powered with the A11 Bionic. It claims to be the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone, with a neural engine that’s capable of up to 600 billion operations per second. It is up to 70 percent faster than A10 Fusion.
This is a fun feature that allows the TrueDepth camera to analyse 50 different muscles movements and mirror your expressions using 12 animojis like panda, pig and so on.
It runs the latest iOS 11 that will let users pay friends in Messages. Siri has been improved further, and it can even be your translator.
