Apple iPhone X: Setting criticism aside, look how people waited for the much-awaited smartphone

After all the tech reviews and umpteen iPhone X videos, finally, on 3 November, the iPhone fans will get the chance to buy and possibly get a hands-on experience of the tenth-anniversary edition, iPhone X. Some may have already received their units. After the lukewarm response that iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus received globally, iPhone X has a different story to tell.

Take a look how people sacrificed comforts of their bed and literally camped outside to buy the new iPhone X.

If you thought this was it, have a look on Twitter. This how people kept the anticipation alive on Twitter.

Tim Cook did not shy away from tweeting images of first few customers of this phone.

 

The edge to edge screen display of the new iPhone X comes with a Face ID which would help in unlocking the phone. The phone is available in India at Rs 89,000 for the 64 GB variant, whereas the 128 GB variant is available at a price of Rs 1.02 lakh.
