8 features in the iPhone X that were already available on Android

We are going to look at some of the new features in the iPhone X that were already available on Android. Put together by Phandroid, they reported there are 8 features that Apple stole from Android with the iPhone X.

Wireless Charging
Since 2011, Wireless “Qi” Charging has been a longstanding feature in Android devices. We have seen Qi wireless charging in an array of devices including many that have already launched in 2017.

Bezel-less Design
Since the launch of Mi Mix, we have seen LG, Samsung, and a few other OEM already offers bezel-less screen for users.

Facial Recognition
The facial recognition feature was introduced back to the Ice Cream Sandwich days with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Today, Apple claims that you no longer need a fingerprint scanner as you can use the built-in facial recognition software to unlock your device quickly and securely.

Dual OIS Cameras
Last month, Samsung beat Apple to introduce its Dual OIS Cameras in Samsung Galaxy Note 8. They both are capable of dual OIS cameras now.

Quick Charging
Qualcomm debuted Quick Charge 1.0 in February of 2013. We have seen other OEMs develop its own quick charging technologies in recent year. After 4 years, the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X finally have fast charging capabilities.

OLED Displays
The first OLED smartphone launched with the Samsung Galaxy back in 2009. LG also made the same switch to OLED with LG V30. It is been 8 years for Apple to catch up.

HDR Content
The LG G6 launched earlier this year with the ability to view HDR content from Netflix, followed by Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, LG V30. At least Apple joined the bandwagon early, instead of waiting until the market is saturated.

Augmented Reality
Lenovo PHAB 2 Pro was launched and provided access to Google’s Tango AR capabilities last year. Followed by ASUS ZenFone AR which not only included Augmented Reality but also support for Google’s Daydream VR technology.
