Apple’s latest venture iPhone X pounded on all previous records of pre-orders in the history of company for its state of the art OLED panel and industry first Face ID feature. Although the thousand dollar price tag remained in discussion for a while but after putting on shelves, the most expensive smartphone sold like a hot cake.
Unlocked & SIM-Free Version of iPhone X
Here comes another fortune for those who missed the first chance to get the latest smartphone in their hands as the unlocked version of iPhone X has been made available for purchase in the US market. The device is offered with full support for both CDMA and GSM networks.
Earlier, if you wanted to buy iPhone X you have to choose one of the carriers from AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint. The latest development has now removed this very hurdle and you can get iPhone X in silver or space grey colour options.
Although there is no difference of specs or features, between the Verizon version of iPhone X and SIM-free iPhone X, however, you need to enter Verizon account credentials in order to make a purchase through it.
The unlocked iPhone X is considered helpful for those who do a lot of international travel or who like to frequently switch networks. When you buy iPhones with specific carrier plans, you are often locked into multi-year deal that makes it costly to use competing services.
However, buying an iPhone X with a carrier plan often comes with discounts or incentives, like the ability to trade an older for the newer version. The unlocked iPhone X with 64 GB of storage costs $1,000, which people will have to pay all at once as opposed to monthly installments like they would when buying a carrier-specific iPhone.
