Dubai: We've just unboxed the iPhone X, the latest iteration of the smartphone from Apple.

We're quite fortunate to get a hold of a unit of Apple's newest device a bit early and had a chance to take a closer look of the gear, set for commercial release on November 3.

And yes, we did try to use the facial scan feature and got to make some comparisons with two earlier iPhone versions.

Here's a quick demo and first impressions of the iPhone X by Scott Shuey, Gulf News Business Editor.
