I’m planning On putting a wireless charging pad next to my night table and since I sometimes check my phone when I’m half asleep in the middle of the night ...it may be a possibility that I mistakenly lay my phone on the pad by the front glass instead of the back

Will it still charge? Will it damage the phone?

I believe it will not charge. I do not know this from personal experience, just my understanding of the technology.

Here
iPhone 8 Plus does not charge face down so I would expect the X to act in the same manner.
I know it’s not necessarily the answer, but you can always activate DND when you charge it at night to avoid notifications.

Will probably brick the phone. You should probably get out of bed and make sure you put your baby back in its cradle correctly.
