Not too long ago, a report mentioned that iPhone 7 was the best selling smartphone for the first half of 2017, and it seems there’s something more to share about the success of the last year’s iPhone 7.
According to a KeyBanc Capital Markets broker John Vinh, Apple iPhone 7 is outselling the newly announced iPhone 8, citing carrier store surveys.
This was bound to happen as customers are waiting for the iPhone X to hit the market, which might be a good change compared to iPhone 8. Apple’s iPhone 8 is definitely an upgrade but not a significant one compared to last year’s iPhone 7. Both devices are quite similar when it comes to design and specifications — there’s a change in hardware, but not too much to offset the price difference. Apple iPhone 7 currently retails for $549 while the newly announced iPhone 8 goes for $699.
“Carriers continue to offer promotions, but they have been much more modest, compared to the iPhone 7 launch last year”, Vinh said.
On the other hand, iPhone X costs a whopping $999, and it remains to be seen how the consumers will react to such a high price tag, and if there’s a differentiating factor justifying this price tag or not. Reports suggest that iPhone X will be short in supply until next year so customers will have to act fast if they want to get their hands on the highly hyped device.
