Video shows that Apple CEO Tim Cook is carrying the iPhone X with him

Production delays for the Apple iPhone X, you say? It will be impossible to pick one up until the middle of next year, you say? Well, that obviously isn't the case if your name is Tim Cook and you're the CEO of Apple. Back in August, a picture of the executive showed the outline of what was rumored to be the iPhone X in his pants pocket. With that picture, it was impossible to tell exactly which phone Cook was packing. Today, a new video makes it clear that the Chief Executive carries the iPhone X in his right pocket.

The video at the top of this story was taken last week at a Q&A session at Oxford University. Cook was sitting in a chair and the iPhone X slowly worked its way out of the pocket until it fell on the chair. He gave it a quick look, perhaps employing Face ID to unlock the device, and then flipped it upside down on the chair. By the way, we can tell it is the iPhone X because of the vertically mounted dual camera setup on back.

While the CEO of Apple gets to own the iPhone X weeks in advance, the rest of us mortals need to wait until October 27th to pre-order the phone, which is expected to launch on November 3rd. While there always will be an iPhone X lying around the Apple campus for Tim Cook, you'll have to hope that Apple is able to produce enough units to sell you one. The 64GB model will cost $999 while the 256GB version will be priced at $1,149.

Is this a tabloid? I don't give a damn what's in his pocket, I want the iPhone X in MY pocket.

I haven't commented on a Samsung article (in a detrimental facet at least) in weeks. They make great hardware... that's for damn sure. But they offer nothing I have any particular interest in, and a certain portion of their fanbase (i.e. people like you) rub me the wrong way enough to ultimately avoid their products altogether. So I will stay out of Samsung's lane, largely because the less I have to deal with Incels like you and Techie, the better.

After 10 years of experience, Apple finally discover AMOLED, fast charging, wireless charging. But after last years, without Steve Jobs, we see how ugly phone design goes. He will never produce phone with such a humongous hump. R.I.P. Steve. It is not the same without you. Cook is good, but do not have your vision. The company is driven by momentum.

"I haven't commented on a Samsung article (in a detrimental facet at least) in weeks." 3 days ago on Apple surrenders design to S A M S U N G... 20. kiko007 (Posts: 5901; Member since: 17 Feb 2016) I'd say the S6 was when the design aspect of Samsung phones........Samsung can't sell anywhere near the total number of flagships. "But they offer nothing I have any particular interest in" 4 weeks ago you had no interest and contempt for the 2.06 to 1 aspect ratio. Now, you need it in your pocket Kiko007, a man of honesty, integrity, and truth....only if you don't count what he writes.

You realize I specified detrimental for a reason, right? Neither of those comments are detrimental and the first one is outright slander. You purposefully downsized a rather thorough analysis into two sentences for the sole purpose of proving a point that isn't factual. I agreed that Samsung has the design game on lock right now, but it is factually true that they do not sell the number of flagship phones Apple does. What is this... F(au)x News? And I don't recall giving a shit about aspect ratio either. So take your Techie level rhetoric somewhere else, thank you kindly.

24. AxelFoley unregistered

First, your notion that you hadn't commented on a Samsung article in weeks is completely false. Second, saying that the S6 is better looking isn't much of a concession considering people on PA clearly have eyes. 3rd, your transition to the completely unrelated topic of flagship sales served no other purpose other than to be detrimental. It was in no way related to the lecture at hand. But, you had to try to get some kind of attack in. Fourth, I Isuggest you google the definition of "flagship" and quit trying to come up with your own arbitrary one. A flagship is the single (aka 1 or one) most important product a company produces. There are 7 different iphone models on sale at AT&T right now and soon to be 8 (likewise for other carriers). You don't know what the sales are for any 1 (one)of them because Apple doesn't report that number outside of opening weekend....sometimes. You only know the total for all of them together. So, what do you do; just say that everything Apple has on the shelf is a flagship and that 14% marketshare constists of all flagships. If it costs less than a mid-ranger to produce=flagship, free on subsidy=flagship, free on trade-in=flagship. We also know from analytics that the S7 and S8 have had quarters outselling the 6s and 7. So, when the numbers don't suit you, just make up your own dictionary. 5th, you've claimed the 2:1 aspect ratio would not be adopted further because Samsung and LG don't set standards, only Apple sets standards. On this point, you may also need to look up the definition of "standards" and the timeline required to be the one to set them. 6th, now that you been thoroughly annihilated....again, why don't you take yourself back to The Verge.

You Techie clones sure are eager to write thesis length rebuttals that make little sense in context. And I know the iPhone outsells the S line because several publications (including this very site) publish articles regarding that very topic every quarter. You can also calculate sales based on ASP for both companies, BTW, and that'll give you which particular models are selling well.

28. AxelFoley unregistered

Once again, as clearly stated for those with functioning brain cells, "the iPhone" is several phones (almost 8 being sold right now) not a single (1 or one) flagship device. A "line" isn't either. Please pay attention when class is in session. But, at least now you completely ignored the word "flagship" in that whole paragraph, so you're learning when to retreat. To your frivolous point: Simple question, then. What's the total number of iPhone 7s that have been sold to date? We'll queue the Jeapordy them for you. And if we want to arbitrarily pick "lines" and run away from "flagships" ( which you were so confident in an hour ago), what about the Galaxy line? What about the Samsung line? Since every phone made by Apple is an "iPhone", does it work that way for other brands, too? We'll queue the Jeapordy them for you.

30. kiko007

Posts: 7521; Member since: Feb 17, 2016 There you go. Now please cease the condescending bulls**t rhetoric. Anyone with half a brain cell already knew this to be the case, and that number will likely widen as the release of the iPhone 8 will come with a hefty iPhone 7 price cut, this making it even more enticing to certain consumers. You can argue semantics all day long, numbers do not lie.

33. AxelFoley unregistered

"The latest research from Strategy Analytics suggests..." I believe I already accounted for analytics. Numbers don't lie, and research is a guestimate, not a number. See, watch this: There you go. That was easy. I bet I can pull a few more of those where that one came from. And to my point, at the time the iPhone 7 gets its discount, it isn't a "flagship", especially when you named the 8 as the flagship in the same sentence. There are 8 different iPhones on sale at carriers this very second and all of them together make up a 14 % share of the smartphone market. Period.

The iPhone isn't a flagship phone. It's a midrange premium device per se. Samsung does sell the most actual premium smartphones in the world.

It is a flagship, the latest iPhone is Apples flagship phone. As someone said above, a flagship is the companies most important product/s. It doesn't have to do with strictly specs. That was coming from an Apple hater also. Apple has pretty consistently sold the most of any ONE phone. It had been that way all the way up to the iPhone 5S, when they released just 1 phone a year, it always sold more than any other phone. It has nothing to do with being premium or not, its a fact that 1 single model of phone outsold everything else. Your moving the goalposts as usual.

Kiko, u can have both and enjoy the best of both worlds rather than defending one over another. Believe me, it’s more fun that way.

Maybe if you bought something other than iPhone's, you might get a better satisfaction of having something that can give you more, and that new feeling. In the Android world you have better cameras, displays, more features, and options, VR, AR, more apps and games compared to any iPhone. You should give it a try kiko007.

I've had twice as many Android phones as iPhone(s) and I know what I want in a phone. I don't play games, or rather, don't have time to play games on my phone, so all that gaming stuff isn't for me. All I want is high quality apps, an easy to keep track of messaging platform, and speed with a side of good audio quality. The iPhone does all that, and HTC is likely the only Android OEM I like enough to change that.

I recommend u to carry both iPx and Note 8. I am stunned with Note 8 when I played with it (specially indoor portraits which are so good than my 7 Plus), but don’t want to give up iOS. Thinking to get iPx and Note 8 now. Just stop defending Apple too much and enjoy the devices, it’s so much fun that way.

He is not troll but somehow he takes the Apple insulting too personally. That’s not healthy I guess.

It seems you did not read that he has an iPhone X not an iPhone 6.
