We see a quite similar advertisement of Google Pixel that looks similar to that of iPhone X. The main focus of both the advertisements is simplicity and articulated description of its features. It would be interesting to see the competition between iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 which are both about to hit the floors at the end of this year.
