3D Touch Feature Done In 2019?The other two more-expensive iPhones, the iPhone X with 5.8-inch OLED display and the iPhone X Plus with 6.5-inch OLED display will still possess the feature.
When the X launched past year, Apple paid handsomely for the new Face ID system, stainless steel casing and sharper, more efficient OLED screen technology.

Kuo also claims that this may just be the beginning of Apple's 3D Touch phase-out.
