What does the iPhone X look like? 

The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen squeezed into a body smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus. Apple said it has been its goal to create "an iPhone that is all display".

Apple has dropped the iPhone's iconic home button, which has been present on every device since the first iPhone released in 2007. It has also removed the front-facing fingerprint scanner, which has been adopted by plenty of other leading brands.

Instead, the iPhone X has a nearly bezel-free design with the screen covering almost the entire front of the phone. To make room for the front-facing selfie camera and facial recognition, the screen has a slight notch that indents at the top.

It has a dual-lens rear facing camera and will come in the colours silver and grey
