iPhone X With New Dynamic Wallpaper Appears in the Wild

There are still 26 days to go before Apple officially launches iPhone X, but at least one person has already gotten their hands on one of the sought-after 5.8-inch devices, if a video shared on Reddit is anything to go by.

The short clip, embedded below, shows someone swiveling in their hand what looks like a silver glass-backed iPhone X with a new, previously unseen dynamic wallpaper on the lock screen.

As the handset is rotated, the padlock above the time visibly shudders as Face ID refuses to unlock, suggesting the person holding the phone is not the owner.

Speculation is rife among Redditors as to who the owner could be and how they ever got hold of an iPhone X so far ahead of the official launch next month.

According to the original poster, the video was uploaded from the San Jose area, California, making it likely that the clip was recorded by someone who knows an Apple employee with early access to the device. The iPhone X in the clip is also displaying an AT&T logo in the upper left corner, adding further weight to the suggestion this was recorded in the U.S.

An anonymous tipster supplied us with a screen grab of the new dynamic wallpapers exclusive to the iPhone X. Looks like the red background is the one you see in the vid:

This phone looks so dated with it's thickness to footprint ratio.


LG V30 = 7,4 mm
iPhone X = 7,7 mm
Pixel 2 = 7,8 mm
Pixel 2 XL = 7,9 mm
Galaxy S8 = 8,0 mm
Galaxy Note 8 = 8,6 mm

Yeah, the thickness of the X is way out of line … :rolleyes:

Fake dummy unit. Apple would never release a phone with a notch. Mark my words, by the time Nov 3rd comes around, Apple will have figured out how to get the camera system, Touch ID, and headphone jack all behind the screen. I also guarantee that they will reverse the camera bump so that the cameras actually go *inward* now.

It could slap some people here in the face and heys still say it’s fake. I don’t get it. Why does jealousy cause people to discredit authenticity? Happens every year when we see these posts. Baffles me. Sad.

Cool to see how quick the FaceID seems to work!

It looks fake, look closely on back cameras

Nowhere near how maturely Pixel XL 2 does, just random bubbles flying like a jellyfish since from iOS 7. Childish or Absurd?


It’s too bad the Pixel XL itself looks like it was made by Fischer Price.

And here is the Space Grey. Torn a bit, but this is the one I’m going for.
