The iPhone X doesn’t have a physical home button. Because of that massive display taking up all the space on the front, there’s no space for it, so don’t expect Touch ID to make an appearance either – 2017 is the year of Face ID.
Last year’s iPhone 7 was all about water resistance, something plenty of Android phones have touted over the past few years, and the new iPhones don’t deviate from that, all with an IP67 rating. Considering Apple is usually one to pick up popular Android features, the iPhone X also launches with wireless charging, the same with Samsung’s Galaxy S8. There’s no word yet on how much these wireless chargers will cost, but expect them to fetch a pretty penny.
Camera-wise, Apple incorporates the same, if not similar, dual-camera tech found inside last year’s iPhone 7 Plus. We have two lenses: one wide-angle and the other telephoto, with both benefitting from optical image stabilisation (OIS) tech for seriously stable shots. A full specs breakdown is below:
