Apple will Stop making the iPhone X, and will launch 3 New Cheap iPhone (around 650-750 dollars) Two with OLED and One with IPS Screen.
The iPhone X could be discontinued by mid-2018, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst at KGI Securities. Kuo said that the main reason is that this cell phone did not achieve the expected sales. However, he stressed that Apple will record a 5% increase in revenues by mid-year.
On the other hand, he said that the company will launch three models inspired by the design of the iPhone X.
Luke Lin, analyst at DigiTimes research, has launched an interesting prediction in which he dares to go against the KGI Securities itself. According to his own words Apple will launch this year Two New iPhone with IPS and a new model with OLED screen.
In the forecasts of Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities and one of the most respected experts in the Apple universe on the planet, reference was made to the opposite, namely that the Cupertino firm will launch two New iPhone with OLED screen and only one with IPS screen. The three iPhone will be without bezels.
Taking a look at the exhibition of Luke Lin we see that the two iPhones with IPS screen would have a size of between 5.7 and 5.8 inches and between 6 and 6.1 inches, that would replace the SE, while the model with OLED panel would go up to the 6.5 inches.
It is important to keep in mind that these screen sizes would be integrated in the well-known 18: 9 screen format, which means that the terminals would not be as large as their equivalents in traditional format (16: 9), and that therefore they will be more comfortable to use.
The approach of this analyst makes a lot of sense, since in the end it would be nothing more than continuing the strategy that Apple put forward last year with the launch of the iPhone 8-8 Plus and the iPhone X; two terminals with IPS screen and one with OLED screen.
It is important to bear in mind that at the moment there is nothing safe and that both options have their part of sense, although personally I am more convinced by the position of Luke Lin, especially because it allows Apple to avoid a greater dependence on Samsung facing the supply of OLED panels.
This year Apple will put Face ID and better batteries in its iPhone
Reports suggest that the three iPhones of 2018 will have a longer battery in the form of L, in addition to the integration of facial recognition.
This year Apple will also launch an iPhone SE 2 with wireless charging
It seems that the new iPhone SE 2 will be presented mid-year. More specifically, between the months of May and June. This device will be the mid-range of the iPhone family of 2018, and will feature features inherited from the highest models of this year.
In recent weeks, rumors and some specifications have been emerging. First, the iPhone SE 2 would follow the design line of its previous generation. It could incorporate a glass rear in this case to add wireless charging, a feature that already have the three current models of the iPhone.
On the other hand, the iPhone SE 2 will not feature a very special feature in Apple. We are talking about the 3D Touch, which allows us to execute different actions by pressing our fingers on the screen.
The Chinese newspaper ‘The Economic Daily News‘ says that the new generation of the 4-inch cell would cost around US $ 450 and would be manufactured in India.
There are still many details to know about this device. For the time being, we know that this renewal will be presented midway through the year. In addition, the mass production of this device would begin at the beginning of the second quarter.
Most likely, Apple will also present its wireless charging base. Also, it seems that they will continue to launch devices with this technology. We will be attentive to more news of Apple’s more ‘economic’ mobile.
Apple works with Intel for 5G modems in upcoming iPhone
Apple engineers would be more engaged in working with Intel and would be limiting what they do with Qualcomm. Also 2018 iPhones will have better wireless signals. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the 2018 iPhones will have a different metal frame to improve the transmission of wireless signals.
These are the prices and the ranges of products that KGI could offer the Cupertino company as of next September 2018.
• iPhone SE: $ 349
• iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus: $ 449 and $ 569
• iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus: $ 549 and $ 669

The Final Words
Should you buy an iPhone X now?
The reason for this question is simple. In technology it is better to wait if you can, because new terminals are expected and the current ones will come down in price. And if you can not wait, buy as soon as possible to start enjoying, but all analyzes suggest that we can soon enjoy a reduction in the current top of the range of the company.
As we mentioned above that the sales of the iPhone X were not high as expected, among other things by the strong competition and the arrival of Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, as well as the price of the device (exceeds 1000 euros).
So we recommend you that if you want to win the flagship of the Cupertino boys, it is best to wait until March, as a drop in prices is expected.
The iPhone X is not an iPhone made for everyone, not only because of its high price but because of the change in use it entails. But it is a fantastic terminal for those who want to enjoy the latest in pocket technology.
What do you think of the iPhone X ? Do you think that Apple has made a wrong strategy by launching a mobile that exceeds 1,000 euros ?
