The iPhone X is slightly larger than the iPhone 7. Its height is listed at 5.65 inches (143.6 mm), compared to the iPhone 7 which is listed at 5.45 inches (138.4 mm). The iPhone X is smaller than the Plus models which are around 6.24 inches (158.4 mm). This means your current iPhone case will not fit the iPhone X no matter what device you own. Even though the iPhone X is around the same size as the iPhone 7, it has a larger 5.8-inch Super Retina HD display thanks to its bezel-less design. This is something you will need to keep in mind when shopping for a new screen protector, or you can just pre-order the new Zagg invisibleSHIELD for the iPhone X and save yourself some time.
Not only is the iPhone X bigger than previous models, but it also has a different camera design. The dual 12MP cameras on the iPhone X are vertical, while the iPhone 7 camera has a single round 12MP camera. You will need different cutouts in your case so it will fit the iPhone X.
