4 things that unfortunately Apple borrowed from Android

Technology is advancing every day at faster pace, and it is almost impossible to put things on mobile devices that we have not seen before . From the fingerprint reader to facial recognition, there seems to be no technology that has not been previously used in one form or another.

However, even though Apple is not recognized for its innovation, it does so by upgrading existing technologies to excellence. However, this does not exempt you from guilt. Here are some things that Cupertino have included in their new iPhone X that we have already seen on Android .

1. OLED display 

Apple has finally changed the formula. No more LCD screens, it's time to make way for a new era for iPhone devices. Yes, OLED screens have arrived , and we all know Apple was not the first to bring them .

Almost 10 years ago, in 2008, Nokia launched the first mobile device with AMOLED screen , and it was the Nokia N85. It would not be until a year later that Samsung would launch its Samsung i7110, the company's first terminal that had such technology.

Then, Samsung would release its Samsung Galaxy S, which would arrive with a full-screen OLED , being the first of many.

2. Face Recognition 

Face recognition is not something new either ... or not exactly. This idea had already been used by Google in its Samsung Galaxy Nexus of 2012, although it must be clarified that not by far worked the same as the iPhone X.

While the iPhone X uses special sensors to map the surface of our face, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus used an Android 4.0 tool , which allowed us to unlock our device using our face and camera device.

Of course, there were some problems in its operation. The light conditions had to be appropriate and, furthermore, you could unlock the device using a simple photo of us . Tragic.

3. Screen without frames 

It should be made very clear: the new iPhone X's unframed display is impressive. All people who have been able to test the device before its release date agree with this point. However, Apple was not the first to do so, as you should know.

A device called Sharp Aquos Crystal, which hit the market in 2014, brought with it the first "edge-to-edge" screen , to call it somehow. So no, they were neither Xiaomi nor Samsung the first to bring a borderless screen to market.

4. Wireless charging 

This last point is one that already takes a long time between us but that, for strange reasons, Apple has not decided to implement until now .

However, the first appearance of this technology was seen in 2009, or so we remember, with the Palm Pre. Of course, unlike the iPhone X which you only have to place in its base, with the Palm Pre you had to buy an additional accessory that was placed in the area of ​​the battery, and allowed the magnetic charge using a base of 70 dollars.

In 2012 this technology appeared in other terminals , such as the Nokia Lumia 820, the Nokia Lumia 920, in the HTC Droid DNA, and the Nexus 4. Since then, this inductive charging method has become popular in multiple technology companies. 

Be that as it may, if there is something that highlights those of Cupertino is for its ability to improve all existing technologies. For this reason, we will not be surprised when the iPhone X destroys all the terminals that are currently on the market, including their younger brothers iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

What do you think of all these new features that will come with the iPhone X? Leave us your answer in the comments!
