Hi Shahid, here is the link to the iPhone X Teardown. If you scroll down to step 22, it explains how you can’t remove the camera bump. Hope this helps. John

This is from step 22
 
Bonus round: What happens when you break the rear glass on your brand new iPhone X?
 
After lots and lots of heat, we sheathed the spudger and drew our Jimmy. Like the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, The X features a seriously glued rear panel.
 
After all of our careful Jimmying, we're still stuck: Unlike the iPhone 8's single piece rear panel, the camera bump overlaps the rear glass, and is meticulously welded to the metal frame beneath.
 
In this classic hand-stuck-in-cookie-jar situation, we can either cut off our hand (the camera bump) or shatter the cookie jar (the rear glass). Great.
 
We opt for the camera bump-ectomy for an intact glass panel. Those replacing a broken panel won't have any good options—and they'll have a heck of a time scraping out the shards of glued-down glass.
