The iPhone X will go on sale from November 3, and the product has already received an overwhelming response. However, it isn’t known how many units were up for pre-orders on Amazon India and Flipkart. But it has been reported for many months now that Apple will be facing shipping delays with the iPhone X.
Even at a global scale, Apple is predicted to reach a balance of demand and supply only by 2018. Nonetheless, the response Apple has received for the iPhone X on the first day does say a lot about the anticipation people have for the device.
The iPhone X being the anniversary edition has introduced many firsts for Apple, the highlight being its bezel-less OLED display. Ditching its famous Touch ID fingerprint recognition, Apple introduced Face ID on the iPhone X. In terms of specifications, the iPhone X flaunts a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED Super Retina Display. It is powered by an A11 Bionic 64-bit chipset paired with an M11 motion co-processor. ALSO READ: Apple states accuracy of Face ID in iPhone X hasn t changed, terms Bloomberg report false
