Social media site Weibo has pictures which show the gadget with deep cracks running across the front and back of the device, Mirror reports.
Ba Hao Wan Zi Jiang reportedly was one of the first iPhone X users whose gadget cracked. The pictures posted by her on Weibo of her silver iPhone X reveal the cracks along the lower left hand corner.
Chinese tech blogger Huang Xiaowen also posted two pictures of the front and back of the phone with cracks on it.
Apple has said it will charge 286.44 to repair the screen.
With growing incidents of cracks, Case company Moshi has released special cases designed for the iPhone X. "Combining metal and glass-like materials, all the cases offer military-grade drop protection, a premium finish and slim aesthetics - to safeguard your new iPhone whist maintaining a stylish and sophisticated look," the company said as .
Julian Shovlin, founder of iSmash was quoted as saying by Mirror Tech, they hope to be able to offer the iPhone X screen repairs for around 150 mark with 1-2 months post launch.
