We are expecting three new versions of the iPhone X later this year, according to a recent report, when the new models launch, Apple will discontinue the current model.
When Apple releases a new iPhone it usually sells the previous years model at a lower price, at the moment you can buy the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 which were previous years models, as well a the current handsets.
The news comes in a report from KGI Securities Analyst Ming Chi Kuo who has said that Apple will not offer the iPhone X at a lower price as it would apparently hurt the brand value.
“iPhone X would hurt product brand value & lineup of 2H18 new models if it continues to sell at a lower price after 2H18 new models launch: Lowering iPhone X’s price after the 2H18 new models launch would be a negative to product brand value given 3D sensing and OLED display are features of the new high-price model. Additionally, to sell iPhone X at a lower price may have a negative impact on shipments of the new 6.1″ LCD iPhone in 2H18. Thus, we estimate iPhone X will reach end-of-life (EOL) around the middle of 2018.”
As we mentioned earlier there are expected to be three new versions of the iPhone X this year, one with a 6.1 inch LCD display and two OLED display models. The design of the three handsets is expected to be the same as the current model. We are not expecting to see these new handsets until September 2018. Apple are also expected to launch a new iPhone SE before then.
