The iPhone X may be very difficult to buy until 2018

The iPhone X may be very difficult to buy until 2018

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said in his latest research note that complete supply-demand equilibrium for the iPhone X won't be achieved until at least the first half of 2018 due to serious supply constraints. Kuo suggests that the iPhone X demand could outlast its supplies and lead to delayed shipments until mid-2018. The face identification feature of this smartphone will make it a very secure and stable device for the owner.

Some critics cited Apple's decision to delay the launch of the iPhone X, which the company has dubbed "the future of the smartphone".

The new iPhone X is displayed during an Apple special event at the Steve Jobs Theatre on the Apple Park campus on September 12, 2017 in Cupertino, California.

"We think some will be concerned about market acceptance of Face ID and the pricing of the iPhone X, before robust pre-order result is confirmed", Kuo said in a note to investors. The base model costs $999 internationally and Rs. 89,000 in India. Erstwhile models include the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

While production delays tend to be commonplace with any new iPhone release, the delay associated with the iPhone X is somewhat unprecedented. This is the nature of the game and cannot be corrected. That's right - they think these 10 stocks are even better buys. The new camera also delivers the highest quality video capture ever in a smartphone with better video stabilization, 4K video up to 60fps and 1080p slo-mo up to 240fps.

The late arrival of the iPhone X could also push the sales of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus in the meantime. The gadget will be unique and one of a kind. The iPhone Upgrade Program is available for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at apple.com and Apple Stores in the US with monthly payments starting at $34.50 for iPhone 8 and $39.50 for iPhone 8 Plus.3 ● Customers will be able to order iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus beginning Friday, September 15, with availability beginning Friday, September 22, in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the UK, the US and US Virgin Islands.
