Apple had introduced its new handset Apple iPhone X equipped with the latest technology last year. This phone of Apple is not one of the best-selling iPhones. One reason for this is its limited stock. Due to the delay in production, its sales started slow too.
In the first quarter of 2018, Apple iPhone X 18 million units have been estimated to be sold.
Now the news is that according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it can be discontinued after the disappointing numbers of iPhone X.
The reason for this action is China. The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen, but the area using it is less than 5.5 inches. Consumers were better off on Series of iPhone 6 and 7 and Apple also received good response from users on these series.
The future of the iPhone X is not certain yet. It can not be said officially anymore. But according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone X can be closed by mid-2018. Until then, it is expected that approximately 62 million units of iPhone X will be sold. This is less than the estimated 80 million units sold.
Even in countries like India, iPhone X did not get a great response. The phone had to be expensive behind it. In India, this phone starts from 89000 rupees. Hopefully, the Inspire models from the iPhone X will be launched at a lower price. It can attract consumers.
