    Although the iPhone X has yet to launch anywhere in the world, Benjamin Geskin over the weekend began tweeting images and videos of the smartphone being unboxed for the first time, as well as a few pictures of the device preparing for shipment. Images of the iPhone X's retail packaging appeared on Apple's website following its announcement in September, but we haven't yet been able to catch a glimpse of the inside of the box.

    In the first few Tweets, Geskin shared images of the iPhone X stacked and ready to ship, and you can catch more glimpses of the side of the packaging in a separate video. Unlike the iPhone 8's rear-focus cover art, the iPhone X packaging depicts the smartphone's large OLED display.

    Geskin then Tweeted a link to Instagram user abraham950, who posted a brief unboxing video of the iPhone X. The video shows that the first thing you see when you open the box is Apple's "Designed by Apple in California" information packet, and below that sits the iPhone X itself.

    In another Tweet, images were shared from an Instagram post that has now been deleted, showcasing a Silver iPhone X from Europe in the process of being unboxed.

    One mobile retailer in Dubai has also received the iPhone X, with a user posting an Instagram video of the package as well as a quick shot of the setup screen and back of the device. In a video shared by the Instagram account @theapplehub, a user in Milan, Italy provided a glimpse at the setup process (which is impossible to complete right now because the device can't be activated yet), and zoomed in on the vertical dual-lens camera of the iPhone X.

    As we near launch day on Friday, November 3, even more in-depth unboxing videos of the iPhone X will appear online as users in New Zealand and Australia begin receiving their devices. The first wave of iPhone X reviews also began arriving online today, including original iPhone reviewer Steven Levy's impressions of the device.

    I'm glad I ordered the silver color. Been ordering black for years. Nice to change it up a bit. Ready for Friday!

    I usually order black or space gray. Ordered both colors for the X. Will open and see which I like more and then sell the other.

    The silver one looks really shiny. Feel I made the right decision ordering the silver one. Hope it looks as good in hand. :)

    Me first me first!

    I love how the rush to Unboxing videos is a thing now. Still haven’t watched a single one, except for the times where it is auto played after I watch a true review.

    Not black when it's turned on, since it's edge to edge ..almost :p

    I fully expect to open the box and have a Jonathan Ive video playing on the screen.

    Went with the space grey. Liked the look of the Silver one better naked, but I feel the darker sides will look better in a case, more seamless anyway.

    I think these are Chinese clones. Didn't they remove everything from the back but the Apple logo and iPhone?

    They did in the US - EU countries still have regulatory info on the back.

    While I don't think the X is the right phone for me, I'm eager to get a look at one and see how it fits in my hand. Just a few more days to go....

    I am very glad I ordered the silver.

    I’m trying to not watch any unboxing videos this year as I want to be fully surprised but I may not be able to lol
