Some iPhone X owners are noticing a troubling issue with their new phones: "crackling" audio. So it's always wise to know what you might be in for before investing Rs 1 lakh on the iPhone X.

A second device will have a smaller 5.8-inch OLED while the third device has a 6.1-inch LCD.

Back in October, an iPhone X Plus concept render was already released by iDropNews, suggesting a 6.4-inch widescreen display with the same footprint as the original iPhone X. Meanwhile, it is also speculated that the iPhone X Plus could be one of the two iPhones to be released in 2018, sporting OLED screens.

iPhone 8 had a similar issue in the earpiece when it was launched and Apple has since fixed it with a software update. Unfortunately for some iPhone X users, the green line across the display is quite thick and it is not disappearing by its own. There hasn't been anything bad enough yet to spook investors - AAPL stock remains near record highs - but the iPhone X display may yet prove to be a problem that impacts sales.

Some Apple iPhone X users have posted images that show a nasty green line running along the right or left edges of the OLED panel on the iPhone X. The alleged "green line of death" is a hardware issue and is said to be caused by a problem in the phone's electrical system.

MacRumors reports that at least 25 iPhone X users have reported the same green line issue on various forums.

The crackling occurs during all kinds of playback, including music, though many reports have said its especially bad during phone calls at maximum volume. Users have taken to Twitter and Reddit to complain about the sound issue on their devices. It's clear that the iPhone X has shaped the design in which we'll see on iPhone devices over the coming years. Of course that leaves the standard 4.7-inch iPhone 8 behind and Apple's production line may also soon reflect that.

Are you looking forward to this new handset lineup? Replacing a cracked iPhone X display will cost $279; if the back is cracked as well, the fix bill rises to a whopping $549.
