Apple iPhone With 6.1 Inch LCD Display And 18:9 Aspect Ratio To Launch In 2018
If Kuo's prediction turns out to be true, the iPhone X would not be available as a lower-priced option when the new models launch in September this year.
Apple has kept quiet on the iPhone X sales numbers, even though industry experts have been about poor sales, strong sales, no consumer demand, and all sorts of things.
Kuo predicted prior to the release of the iPhone X that there would likely be a "severe short supply" for quite some time. "Thus, we estimate iPhone X will reach end-of-life (EOL) around the middle of 2018".
According to a report released by research firm Kantar Worldpanel, Apple lost a good chunk of share in eight major smartphone markets around the globe during the period August-October 2017 as it worked to get its stocks ready for the grand entry of the iPhone X early November.
"This report estimates iPhone X made up about 20 [percent] of total iPhone sales in the 2017 holiday quarter, a very respectable portion of sales considering it didn't go on sale until November", the site reported. 9to5Mac attributed part of that to the fact that the iPhone X arrived later than usual.
Other recent iPhone models also performed well in the final quarter, according to CIRP. The shipment of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus did not meet the company expectations. They expect the weakness in iPhone X orders to remain weak through the first half of this year because "high-end smartphones are clearly hitting a plateau this year". Zhang Bin of Sinolink Securities says now that the first wave of demand for the device has been completed, the $1,000 starting price of the iPhone X may weaken demand in the first quarter.
Following the new that Apple might stop production of the iPhoneX, rumours have emerged of its flagship for the year. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners that the iPhone X accounted for 20% of all iPhones sold during the October-December quarter previous year.
According to a research note MacRumors obtained from Kuo, the 6.1 model will be a cheaper, more affordable alternative to the 5.8-inch iPhone X and the 6.5-inch model tentatively dubbed the iPhone X Plus.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned Apple boffin who works for KGI Securities, said one of this year's Apple handsets will be a 5.8-inch iPhone X sequel. As far as the rest of the information goes, Japan Display's Full Active LCD displays are almost always 6 inches in size and also carry a screen resolution of 2,160×1,080 pixels.
Apple Inc (Apple) designs, manufactures and markets mobile communication and media devices, personal computers, and portable digital music players, and a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications.
Apple will be adopting Japanese display's advanced Full Active display technology to design the LCD display.
The 3D touch is also being done away with.
