Does the 1DX body has Continuous Focus feature for shooting video?   Cause I know my 5DM3 and others don't have that feature, only manually focus when shooting video.

No. Only the T4i/650D has it, so far.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Ah ic,  I wonder why that feature is only available on lower end model.

Ask any pro or indi videographer using DSLRs and 9 out of 10 will say it is a lower end feature
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

In the same frame you would have subjects at different distances from the camera AND not at the position where the AF poins are and you want to focus on one and then the other...
Unlike stills you can't AF and reframe...

And oh! I am no pro...
