It seems that Apple will be working on a new version of the iPhone X, with a larger screen than the Galaxy Note 8. The Cupertino-based company is also working on another iPhone with a large screen, but LCD technology would be much cheaper than the current iPhone X.
Sales of iPhone X will continue in descending line
Suppliers are key in the manufacture of any phone; they provide the main manufacturer of touch panels, recognition systems, cameras, and a long list of terminal components to be assembled in the final product. In the case of the iPhone X, these are seeing how the orders initially promised by Apple to supply the manufacturer of the iPhone X are not as expected, and they are clearly lower than the figures projected by Cupertino at first.
Several suppliers are seeing how their forecasts around the Apple terminal are cut. In fact, the terminal chassis provider, Catcher, has seen how its revenue fall in November has been 10.4%. General Interface Solutions which offers touch panels, has seen how revenues have fallen by 15.53% during the month of November. In general, Apple’s orders for the month of November for the production of the iPhone X have been 30% lower in general terms, always compared with the originally projected figures.
It seems that the future will not be better for these suppliers, who suspect that Apple will further reduce component orders during the first quarter of 2018 and generally during the first half of next year. In fact, it is expected that the production of the iPhone X will keep the same disappointing pace of November at least until March when the production rate will be reduced again.
The latest figures reveal that sales of the iPhone X could be lower than Apple originally projected, which would directly impact orders made to suppliers. Some sales have suffered a lot due to delays, in fact until this week it has not been possible to buy it normally in our country.
