Five new features you won’t find on Apple’s iPhone 8

APPLE'S iPhone X will be released in November and features a stunning new design with an edge-to-edge screen. Here's how the iPhone X looks in pictures.

Apple announced its latest lineup of smartphones last month with the US technology firm unveiling its updated iPhone 8, 8 Plus and all-new iPhone X.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are already on sale with the devices offering more power from the A11 Bionic processor, an improved screen and better camera.

These smartphones can also be charged wirelessly and now come with at least 64GB of memory as standard.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus definitely offer improvements over their predecessors - you can read our full iPhone 8 Plus review here - but the Apple smartphone everyone is talking about is, of course, the iPhone X.

This radically different device will go on sale on November 3 with pre-orders going live from October 27.

And, if you’re seriously considering an iPhone X, here’s five things you won’t find on any other Apple smartphone.

Apple has made some major changes to the look of the iPhone X with this new smartphone now including a stunning edge-to-edge display.

This means the iPhone X features a huge 5.8-inch display in a phone that’s physically smaller to hold.

In fact, the iPhone 8 Plus, which includes a smaller 5.5-inch screen, is over 10mm bigger than iPhone X.

Apple also says the all-glass front and back feature the most durable glass ever in a smartphone.

Ditching the bezels and going for this edge-to-edge design is something we’ve been wanting to see for a while and the iPhone X finally delivers this immersive technology.

If you’re looking for the famous home button on the iPhone X you won’t find one.

Due to the giant display, the Touch ID fingerprint scanner has now been replaced by facial recognition which will unlock the phone simply by glancing at it.

Called Face ID, Apple says it will revolutionise authentication on iPhone X.

Face ID uses a state-of-the-art TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered by A11 Bionic to accurately map and recognise a face.
