1.- Screen without bezels
It is one of the most relevant novelties of the iPhone X. A bezel-less display that changes the design of the iPhone almost since the original iPhone was introduced. However, yesterday the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was presented. And the previous year the original Xiaomi Mi MIX was presented. They are two phones with screens without bezels, and screens without real bezels. But in addition, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has also been presented this year with the Infinity Display without bezels. And they are not even the only mobiles. It is not a novelty.
2.- OLED screen
Now, having claimed for many years that LCD screens were better than OLED screens, Apple is introducing the new iPhone X with OLED screen. The Samsung Galaxy have had AMOLED screens for a long time. Even the entry-level Galaxy J (2017) have an AMOLED screen.
3.- Higher resolution screen
The new iPhone X has a higher resolution screen. Apple’s highest resolution mobile does not have a Full HD screen, but a resolution of 2,436 x 1,125 pixels. It’s still not quite the resolution of 2,560 x 1,440-pixel Quad HD displays.
4.- Available in more colors
In short, there is little to say about the new iPhone X being available in more colors. It was logical, and there are also many mobiles in different colors on the market. From the electric blue color in which so many mobiles were presented in 2016, to editions in green or purple.
5.- No Home button
It is a novelty in the iPhone, because Apple mobiles always had a Home button. The iPhone X no longer has a Home button. However, that is not new in the world of smartphones. In fact, many Android phones do not have a Home button. Google Pixel, Galaxy S8, LG V30 …
6.- Facial unlocking
By dispensing with the Home button, Apple also dispenses with the fingerprint reader, so now the smartphone will have face unlock. Logically, it is not a novelty, the Samsung Galaxy S8 also has an eye-recognition unlocking system.
7.- 3 GB of RAM
The new iPhone X has 3 GB of RAM. There are mid-range Android mobiles that have 3 GB of RAM. There are even smartphones that have 8 GB of RAM.
Before, iPhones were innovative smartphones. Today, iPhones are simply mobiles that have technical characteristics that were already presented months before in many other smartphones.
