The iPhone X, pronounced "iPhone Ten", features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, HDR support, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and True Tone. If Apple makes no changes, the iPhone X will be available for pre-orders starting on Friday, October 27th, which is just two weeks from tomorrow. Even more intriguing is that the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera system is so sophisticated that it may take Android competitors years to implement something similar.

While the report doesn't show suppliers have been able to overcome the issues with the new camera system, research points out that production of the iPhone X has supposedly increased from 100,000 units per-week to 400,000, a considerable jump in the right direction.

DJI's 6K Zenmuse X7 Is a Super 35 Aerial Cinema Camera
The Zenmuse X7 has a new DJI DL-Mount with an extremely short flange distance (distance from the lens to the sensor). The four lenses now available have maximum apertures of f/2.8 with focal lengths at 16mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm.

A big part of the new iPhone, the TrueDepth camera powers the Face ID recognition feature, animoji, and Portrait Mode selfies.

Royal Mail wins injunction against CWU strikes
More than 100 postal workers including Dave Ward, the CWU's general secretary, gathered outside the high court for the verdict. Royal Mail had given CWU a deadline of 12 noon on Monday to call off the strike, which was planned for October 19 and 20.

Yuanti Investment Consulting analyst Jeff Pu predicts that the iPhone X will soon enter mass production and units will start shipping out of China in the third week of this month. Raymond James chip analyst Christopher Caso, who conducted supply chain checks in Asia, also suggested last month Apple could have trouble getting iPhone X unites to customers when it releases. Many reports have actually referred to this issue as the major production bottleneck for iPhone X production. The 64GB iPhone X will be priced at $999, while $1,149 should get you the 256GB model.
