There is bad news, for iPhone enthusiasts. If you are a fan of the worlds “most innovative technology brand” and you happened to fell in love with the flagship iPhone X from 2017, then you should hurry up and get a one at the quickest move. The company’s planning to stop the production of this high-tech smartphone by this summer, due to poor sales numbers in foreign countries.
The model that was released for the 10th-anniversary edition, that was arguably presented as the worlds most-innovative smartphone, is not even close to the favorites of the Chinese market. Apple wants to stop the production, so that they can present a couple of more models, which will turn into profit for them and will gain new customers.The future-expected devices will most likely give Apple a 10% sales growth by the end of this year. The list of new additions will include a second generation iPhone X 5.8-inch, 6.5-inch, and a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone SE (Special Edition) variant, all of which will feature the FaceID technology, that was a big trend ever since the release.
I am not a supporter of this FaceID technology because I rather find it useless, as we can already enter a password, PIN code, template and etc., so that “innovation” sounds stupid to me, but that’s my opinion. What Ming-Chi Kuo, the KGI Securities analyst, stated is that the space at the top of the display is taking too much usable space. This “unused” space is exactly for this FaceID technology, and I don’t agree with this statement as well. What more can you do with less than 30-millimeter space? Neither it’s getting into your eyesight, nor it is useful enough to exist.
The company somehow predicts 5% sales growth in the first half of the year by selling the X partnering along with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models. These sales percentage growths relate to the global smartphone market as a whole and the fans rule the whole thing. If they continue to stick with the incredible Galaxy models, this will turn out bad for Apple. To be honest, however, last year we’ve seen plenty of incredible and money-worthy smartphones, so the competition is on point. We expect even more competition this year, so we’ll see what it will bring.
