The much expected iPhone X is still under production, however, there have been several reports of a possible delay due to its TrueDepth Camera system. Well, this is true as the complex 3D sensors used on Face ID are still not stable in 90% of the units rolling off for now. This means that only 10% meets Apple’s standard and this is surely not good enough.
