Apple’s iPhone X will not go on sale until November 3rd, but there are people around the world who already have one in their hands for one reason or another.
Many of them likely work for carrier partners, with Apple getting some test units into the hands of those who need to make sure the new iPhone works as expected for carriers who stand to sell a lot of the new flagship smartphone. Whatever the reason some people have access to an unreleased handset, there seems to be plenty of people willing to share photos and videos of it.
A new video showing an iPhone X in the wild has popped up in the Apple subreddit, with a seemingly anonymous Reddit username being used to share it. The video, similarly to others we have seen in the past, does not really show us anything we had not already been shown by Apple or the press, but it is nevertheless always interesting to see these devices in the hands of real people ahead of launch day.
The iPhone X goes up for pre-order this coming Friday, October 27th, and the devices will arrive in-stores on November 3rd. Supply is expected to be severely limited due to supply constraints mainly relating to the new TrueDepth camera system that makes Face ID possible. Anyone wanting to get their hands on an iPhone X this side of Christmas is advised to have their pre-ordering fingers ready on Friday and to also perhaps not be too picky about which color and storage combination they will order.
Until we get to see one of the new iPhones in person, the best we can look forward to is more videos like this, but we’re much more interested in a nice 4K video from one of the big YouTube personalities than short, low quality clips like this.
