Iphone X "New" Features That Already Existed by PhonePlanet(m): 9:39am On Sep 14
So the all new iPhone 8/8+ and iPhone X where all announced 2 days ago and although it came with thier impressive features, most of them already existed and not like it was a first on the iPhone like most people (especially on twitter) take it to be. So im going to mention each iPhone "new" feature and what phone it appeared first on

starting off
1. FaceID
FaceID is simply a method of authentication using your face in which the device would be able to recognise you. Although i admit apple made the technology work better, face recognition first showed up on the Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL as well as the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 in 2015. The Lumia 950XL was also the first to appear with quad LED true tone flash, another emphasized feature of the iPhone X


2. Wireless charging
Wireless charging seems to be the future now that its on the iPhone but no it was not the iPhone that "invented" it. No neither was it Samsung. Wireless charging was first ever introduced with the launch of Nokia Lumia 920 in 2012. The Lumia 920 was also the first to introduce OIS(Optical Image Stabilization) in it's camera and true tone HDR screen using AMOLED. This is what apple called "Super Retina"


3. Swipe to Home
With the removal of Home Button on the front of the iPhone, it seems Apple came up with a great idea to go back home by swiping up from below right? We'll, not really. Don't say blackberry! Not only was Nokia N9 the first to remove any sort of buttons from the front of the phone, it was also the first to implement "swipe up to go home" as far back as 2011. The Nokia N9 also switched between apps by swiping from the edge left or right. Apple did the same on the new iPhone, but the "swiping" has to be done on the bar below the phone.

4. Bezel-less Display
You should know obviously that this can't be a first on apple, flagships of both Samsung and LG had bezel-less displays this year. I still prefer the way Samsung did it over any other phone. Anyways. I can't really tell who did it first but Xiaomi Mi Mix Was on of the first phones (if not the first) to be announced with a bezel-less display some 2-3 years ago.


Although with no doubt i can say Apple really improved on those technologies to make them work better
But it's not like the iPhone did not come with some "first on the iPhone" features
1. Animoji is first on the iPhone X
2. A Neural engine on a chip is also first on the iPhone
3. As well as the new portrait mode that changes the background. (forgotten what they called it grin)

And that is that.
Wassup guys! It's been a while i wrote an article smiley

Facial recognition has been on Android for ages though, I had it on my ancient HTC sensation long before there was Windows phone.

Lol. You think those that can AFFORD it look at all these as reason to buy They buy because its from apple and they are just happy it has those features. Some wont even use any of the features. They just want to buy d latest iphone. Not the latest phone.

How many android users even use the wireless charging feature Im sure you dont see it around. Wait for iphone users to start buying d new models and u will now see wireless chargers everywhere(airports and restaurants). Thats d power of APPLE.

I must admit, FaceID is excellent, but Samsung has something similar on the Note 8. Not that advanced, though, but still very cool!
