Apple on Tuesday unveiled three new iPhones, including iPhone X, its most expensive one yet, at its annual event. The event was the first at Steve Jobs Theater, which is part of Apple's new spaceship-like headquarters in Cupertino, California.  The new iPhone X — pronounced like the number 10 — was launched at 10th anniversary of the first iPhone.

With the new premium phone, Apple has crossed $1,000 barrier. The new generation smartphone will be available in two variants - 64 GB and 256 GB in silver and space grey colours. In India, 64GB and 256GB models will be available at the price of Rs 89,000 and 1,02,000 respectively. Apple has priced iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at Rs 64,000 and Rs 73,000 respectively. 

Hours before the Apple event, its market competitor Samsung launched its premium big-screen Note phablet or Galaxy Note 8 at a price of Rs 67,900. 

Since all three phones of Apple and Samsung's Galaxy 8 are in premium category and could burn a hole in your pocket, its only logical to compare their specs before reaching a decision to buy one.
