Analyst Predicts Apple Will Discontinue iPhone X This Year

iPhone sales to be “surprising magnitude” worse than feared, analysts fear Apple likely to discontinue iPhone X this year
| 21 April, 2018, 14:00

According to a case maker's report, at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics tradeshow at Hong Kong, Apple is reportedly working on the second generation of their budget-friendly iPhone i.e. iPhone SE 2.

Apart from speculating the launch date, the latest report also divulges some details about the iPhone SE 2's design, which it claims will largely remain identical to the previous model. Audio will be routed via the Lightening connector and Bluetooth instead.

The Apple iPhone SE 2 will have the A10 Fusion chipset that made its debut with iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in 2016.

Earlier this week, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote in a note that he expects Apple to offer a cheaper, 6.1-inch iPhone model this fall for $550 - almost half the cost of the current iPhone X.


If the next iPhone SE is indeed coming next month, we'd expect it to also consolidate gold and rose gold into a single color like the iPhone 8, Apple Watch, and iPad.

With the iPhone SE the last surviving handset to rock the time-honoured audio output, the end of the road could be nigh. The iPhone maker reported $2.10 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $2.02 by $0.08. Jackson Grant Investment Advisers Inc. now owns 5,431 shares of the iPhone maker's stock valued at $782,000 after purchasing an additional 17 shares during the period. However, the dimensions of the iPhone SE 2 will be close enough, if not identical to that of the iPhone SE. The Touch ID would be placed at the home button and there would be no notch on the display. Also, as mentioned before, the phone may also get the A10 Fusion chipset which powers the iPhone 7 series.

Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has warned that he does not predict wireless charging to happen on an iPhone SE 2 - if it exists at all - although he does believe a faster iPhone SE may be needed for iOS 12. However, reports reveal that the Cupertino major may be launching the phone at Apple WWDC event scheduled to happen in the month of May. Apple is expected to remove the popular port - as it has done from its flagship devices - likely to make room for other components. Reportedly, iPhone SE 2 will be manufactured in India by Wistron - the same company which started assembling the current generation iPhone SE in Bengaluru in 2017.
