Here's how the iPhone X compares to the Galaxy Note 8

The finish is made using a seven-layer colour process for precise hue and opacity, delivering a rich depth of colour with a colour-matched aerospace-grade aluminium bezel. That's a USP Apple has retained since the first iPhone was launched a decade back. According to them, Qualcomm will begin to mass produce the technology as early as January next year and will debut just in time of Q1 2018.

After months of rumours, leaks and plenty of speculation the iPhone 8 has finally be unveiled. Other technological wizardry offered by the iPhone X includes a new facial recognition system called Face ID, and a front-facing TrueDepth camera which enables cartoon animals called "Animojis" to replicate your facial movements, expressions, and speech. That bodes well; it speaks to the tech giant's boldest, priciest handset yet. Just watch out in low-light conditions. Many won't have an excellent camera - but depending on your photography skills, you might not even notice.

People often looked at us aghast or with pity for our palm-sized phones.

With Apple showing the home button the door in the iPhone X, the new Face ID feature has been brought in to take charge of unlocking the phone. "It has been a great experience collaborating with Himax on the project to enable 3D computer vision technologies in smartphones, virtual reality and augmented reality products".

Samsung barely beat Apple to the punch with this particular feature, as it only introduced facial recognition to unlock the Galaxy S8 when it came out in April this year.

The much talked about Super Retina display is basically an OLED display - something that has been found on Android flagships (and even mid-range smartphones) for quite some time now.

I loved that my iPhone 4 refused to download apps.

It also runs on Android, which is obviously more customizable but less optimized to the device's hardware. However, those hoping to sink their teeth into Android 8.0 Oreo OS will also have to wait, which is disappointing. The curvature of OLED screens make that transition incredibly subtle, but it's still there. The 32Gb variant of the phone is currently available on Amazon for Rs 49,200. Everything from the display to the camera could be described as 'extra, ' based on what you need from a smartphone and how satisfied you are with the one you carry today.

With its gorgeous, nearly borderless OLED display, wireless charging, and facial recognition tech, Samsung's flagship smartphones are the closest you'll get to the iPhone X without actually buying one.

Shrinking the bezel to nothingness seems to be the last conquerable frontier of phone design. At 5.8 inches, the Galaxy S8's display is the same size as that of the iPhone X, while the Galaxy S8+'s 6.2-inch screen is slightly larger.

Face ID looks futuristic, but Touch ID is trusted, and not exactly outdated either. In a sense, this is good news for Apple which enjoys a better reputation as a more sustainable gadget. Talking poop emoji, anyone?

So what about "the rest of us"? It wasn't an endless roster of likes and comments and quickly finding an answer that interrupts a dinner conversation simply because you can. Face detection is a convenient but unsafe option since it can be tricked with a photo. Battery life is two hours longer than the iPhone 7, it's overwhelmingly faster and an integrated graphics processor means new AR apps and 3D games. Again, Android paved the way for Apple - something which has become a trend of sorts. Apple has been holding on the apparent premise that it needed to get color rendering and other aspects of the display up to its exacting standards, but now that it has, it'll be very hard to look at its older mobile display tech in the same way.

APPLE also announced successors to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
