Last Updated Sep 12, 2017 at 6:03 pm EST

Apple is releasing a super-premium iPhone with a super-premium price tag, starting at (US)$999.

While Apple is continuing to update its existing, cheaper models, the new iPhone X – pronounced like the number 10 – will have a screen with higher resolution and “OLED” technology for richer colours.

It will also lose a distinct home button to make more room for the 5.8-inch display, which is slightly more than the Plus model’s 5.5 inches. The features are similar to what Samsung offers.

The new, dramatically redesigned iPhone, was just one of many updates shown off at Apple’s new spaceship-like headquarters in Cupertino, California.

BT’s Winston Sih was at the Steve Jobs Theatre to get all the details.
