All three upcoming iPhones are expected to sport iPhone X-like design with bigger batteries as per Kuo past investor notes. That's what Apple wants you to believe.

But still, Apple killing a much-anticipated smartphone like iPhone X is something very hard to hear. The iPhone X had a during the holiday shopping season, but that's about it. It's worth noting that Kuo isn't the only analyst who believes Apple will kill the first-generation model: Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang thinks the same thing.

Many see the iPhone X as not having been as exciting for the consumer base as expected.

The departure of the original iPhone X is likely to be filled well with the new versions that KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo previous year as 6.5-inch OLED and 6.1-inch LCD models.

The reason? In addition to announcing a second-generation iPhone X, Apple's expected to launch an all-new 6.1-inch iPhone with Face ID and an LCD and a so-called 6.5-inch OLED "iPhone X Plus". The report's breakdown is considered a rought estimate, as Apple doesn't formerly break out iPhone sales by model. Because of that, Kuo predicted Apple will place the iPhone X into an end-of-life cycle in the summer of 2018, stopping production on the device and removing it from its lineup. So says KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

It was a lot of hours on court. "It will be definitely be a big challenge", he said of the Nadal clash. Open in 2014, so this is also lovely one", Cilic said of his latest major milestone.

When the newest phones get old, they often get cheaper.

The company is supposedly struggling to justify iPhone X production because of poor sales - and may scrap the phone later this year. That doesn't equate to the phone being discontinued because it's a market failure.

The consumer advocate group also filed a compensation suit against Apple and its local headquarters last week, seeking an award of KRW 2.2 million ($2,057 or roughly Rs. 1,31,400) per plaintiff. Yuanta Investment Consulting has also reduced its first-quarter shipment estimate from 30 million to 26 million units.

The iPhone X is indeed a major creation for Apple, but several analysts already suggested that iPhone X sales in the fiscal first quarter would not be able to meet the original projection of 50 million and reach just 30 million units.

Apple is trying to boost the iPhone X sales by touting its various features. The highlight of the ad is poetry by Muhammad Ali aimed at bolstering your self-belief.
