iPhone X review round-up

iPhone X (first-generation) production may be stopped in mid-2018

Apple not planning to reduce the price of the iPhone X.

The company usually reduces the prices of older iPhones when the new models launch, but this won’t be the case with the original iPhone X. According to KGI Securities and its main analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will discontinue the original iPhone X when the second-generation launches in September 2018. This means that Apple will neither reduce the price, nor sell the original iPhone X along with its successor in 2018/2019.

Kuo believes that keeping the iPhone X with a lower price will impact the sales of the future models in a very bad way. As Apple is not planning major innovations for its end-2018 lineup, probably a few users would choose the second-gen iPhone X if the first model is on the market with a reduced price. Additionally, Kuo thinks that iPhone X will be sold in significantly lower quantities than previously expected.

In addition to the iPhone X (version 2018) the company will also launch a phone with a 6.1-inch LCD screen and Face ID, with a design similar to the iPhone X. A larger iPhone X Plus will offer a 6.5-inch OLED display, while the original 5.8-inch iPhone X will be refreshed.

The iPhone X Plus will be the first iPhone ever starting above the $1,000 threshold, while the iPhone X (2018) will remain at $999. The mid-range 6.1 inch LCD iPhone may start significantly lower – around $699.
