IPhone X makes its way to Malaysia Nov 24

"The hefty price of iPhone X is going to hurt sales in China, that's the biggest reason that we're not too optimistic about its performance in fourth quarter". In a telling sign, the iPhone X launch saw enormous lines of buyers queue up outside of Apple retail stores around the world, something we haven't really seen for quite some time.

As news on the iPhone X successors are now released, many customers may be wondering why Apple is seemingly moving on from the iPhone X.


Despite Apple's solid sales here with its quarterly market share reaching as high as 20 percent a year ago, Korea has been on the second or third list of countries for iPhone release to date. Kuo has also predicted that Apple will ditch the TouchID entirely for Face ID on its next year's models. In comparison, the 256GB version of the iPhone 8 costs $367.50 to make.

Dr. Raymond M Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies Corporation, said: "Based on our extensive lab tests and measurements, the iPhone X becomes the best performing smartphone display that we have ever tested, earning DisplayMate's highest ever A+ grade". The 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen uses the TrueDepth front-facing camera to power the facial recognition system known as Face ID.


The name of the iPhone X successor at the same size, however, is open to all guesses. It can even be known as the iPhone XS, with Apple returning to the convention that it seemingly dropped when it jumped from the iPhone 7 last year to the iPhone 8 this year.

"It is the most color accurate display that we have ever measured". Apparently, gray market dealers are charging much smaller premiums for the 10th anniversary iPhone and this could be indicative of the low demand for the device in the asian country.


Other hedge funds and other institutional investors also recently made changes to their positions in the company. Reuters also notes that the Apple enjoys a margin of 59% on the iPhone 8.
